I received a tweet from one of twitter followers, @jeffzurel, this morning about a very worthy cause.
We are going into winter now in SA and the homeless are always affected the worse. Jerseys 4 Jozi is a non-profit organization who came up with a fantastic concept:
There manifesto reads as follows:
The Joburg winter is tough – but so are we.
We’re also a giving, caring city,
Reaching out to one another every day.
We’re for not-so-random acts of kindness,
For spreading warmth and happiness
And believing in the power of you and me.
Because a jersey isn’t just a sum of threads,
It’s a gift of warmth,
And an essential for survival.
So we’re about quality,
Giving aid with pride,
And adding value to lives.
What we feel, we feel with heart
What we do, we do with purpose
And what we give, we give with a smile
We believe in the cause because we care about the people of Jozi
And we spread warmth because we’re cold without it.
With some big sponsors behind them, they are able to make a little bit of warmth a reality for those in need.
