I can’t believe it’s week 4 of the Kindness Challenge. I am more conscious of the kindness that surrounds me and the numerous opportunities for kindness that life presents on a daily basis. I have to post my week 3 check in, but this story was so compelling that I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
Second Chances is the first non-profit company in South Africa that creates social upliftment by using social media. #SecondChances asks its followers to help and watch the highs and lows of the lives they change. Second Chances focuses on unemployment, addiction, hopelessness and abuse. They give a second chance to people through employment opportunities, sobriety support, education and sponsorships. Their program proves that anyone can turn their life around with some assistance.
The full target was reached to get beautiful Thando (above) a new leg and a #SecondChance at a teenage life.
Second Chances is about R250 000 in debt ($16 033.87 or £11 081.92). Pam started begging at the corner of Greyson and Rivonia roads in Sandton to raise money to keep Second Chances’ doors open. She’s helped about 200 people and fed 3000 children through her feeding scheme so far. Pam has the passion and drive to make Second Chances a huge success.
Let’s help this incredible woman help more people. Any act of kindness impacts on someone’s life. If you are unable to donate right now, please keep this organisation in mind for possible future donations.
Love and Blessings,
