Dear Pink Loerie Friends,

In the next couple of days, more so than any other time of the year, most of us will look back at how we spent our days. More importantly, we will also dream of a better and happier tomorrow and about spending more time with the people that matter the most.

For elderly people who have lost beloved partners and friends and whose children have moved far away, the festive season can be a very sad and lonely time. For them, especially, just being acknowledged can positively impact the way in which they experience the festive season.

Because Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival Southern Africa Foundation (Non-Profit Company Registration Number: 2016/283475/08 and NPO Number: 181-161) is all about celebrating togetherness, we would like to ask you to please consider making a donation towards our efforts to spread some festive cheer to 250 of our friends who reside at Loeriehof Old Age Home and Vermont Centre in Knysna.

They might not be part of your family, but showing goodwill doesn’t have to be limited to those you know. Feeling appreciated and loved is a basic human need.

The joy of knowing you’ve given hope to someone who might otherwise be suffering from loneliness can make this the most wonderful time of the year.

Please, will you make your donation via ZAPPER right now?
