BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF IKAMVA LABANTU

EVENT DATE: Jul 18, 2015

Jessica Schwartz

THE STORY:

For over 50 years, Ikamva Labantu (www.ikamva.org) has partnered with South Africa's most impovershed townships in community development. Ikamva has uplifted, empowered and changed lives of over one million South Africans during this time...and over 3 years ago, it changed two more -- ours, when we moved to Cape Town and worked for Ikamva Labantu.

Now we're asking you to join us - as we not only invest in the incredible work of Ikamva Labantu by supporting the nearly 2,000 Orphans and Vulnerable Children in our by Photo-zoom V10"> program -- but do it all to celebrate the legacy of Nelson Mandela. The man, the 'Tata' (father) whose spirit and example inspires us all.

This is our #Meals4Mandela campaign in honor of International Nelson Mandela Day (July 18th, 2015)-- to raise at least enough money ($10,222) to provide our orphans and vulnerable children 10,222 meals - one for each day Madiba spent in prison to fight for the South Africa we have today --- one where all of our children can and will flourish. But not without our support!!

Our children -like ALL children- need by Photo-zoom V10"> education, oppurtunity, skills, love, support and enrichment. Ikamva Labantu provides all of that. But none of our work can be successful if our children are not given the FUEL they need to grow. Orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa's townships face abject poverty and critical food insecurity. It's a challenging reality, but there is PLENTY of hope to go around.

For $1 per meal, YOU can provide these children with the by Photo-zoom V10"> nutritional food they need, including fresh produce from our community food gardens. So, please help us however you can as we personally seek to raise at least $2,000.

We can't tell you how much it will mean to us....and even more so, to the children of Ikamva. Fuel the legacy that inspires us while fueling our future generation to grow strong. #Meals4Mandela
