Winter is coming

Have you noticed the mornings are darker, nights are colder and there's a distinct nip in the air? That means it's time to sort through the children's winter clothes.

Some items can be handed down to the younger kids. But that still leaves a long shopping list: new winter pyjamas and slippers, hoodies and tracksuit pants, gloves, scarves, beanies, boots and trainers.

Even at the cheaper stores, it all adds up to a huge expense. And it's not the only additional cost we face every winter.

There's extra food to be bought, because kids burn up more energy keeping warm in winter ... off the shelf medicines to treat winter coughs, colds, flu and sore throats ... and doctors' bills for more serious illness.

Could you possibly help out by making your generous donation online now towards these costs?

Your gift of R189 would buy a warm puffy jacket for one of our little girls. R159 pays for a 2-pack of boys' track pants and R169 buys a fleece hoodie for a teenager.

If you can donate more, it will help fill a shopping basket with long sleeved t-shirts in all sizes, socks and fur-lined boots. Smaller gifts will buy cough medicine and paracetamol syrup to treat pain and fever.

Any amount you can spare is deeply appreciated and will go a long way towards keeping our family of 64 boys and girls cosy and healthy through the bitter winter months.

So please will you make your contribution now?

Our work at the Johannesburg Children's Home reminds us every day that reaching out to a child who's been hurt or neglected in the past ... and giving him or her the encouragement and opportunity to start anew and grow into a happy, successful youngster ... is one of the most satisfying things you can do.

So you are sure to find your own reward when you make your donation to help provide these boys and girls with necessities like winter clothing and medicines.

Thank you for caring.

How to help

Bringing up a child is expensive! And when you have a 'family' of 64, every extra bit of cash helps.

Order delicious party platters at reasonable rates ... or make use of our laundry service.

If you can spare an hour or two a week, please consider volunteering at our Home?

Check out our 'wish list' for items needed right now. Or contact us for more information.

Make a birthday donation of R125, R1250 or R12500 in celebration of this milestone year for JCH

Run a marathon ... enter a cycle race ... or help our kids by asking friends to donate to JCH instead of buying you a birthday or anniversary gift.

Putting the pieces back together

a safe refuge for 64 children of all races
who have been found in need of care by the Children's Court.
