"A Gift of Warmth" - Blanket Drive

Personal message

Winter has officially arrived, its a bitterly COLD day at The Cradle of Hope, this is when so many hungry adults and children flock to The Cradle of Hope in search of a warm meal and a blanket to keep them warm. 

This winter, THE CRADLE OF HOPE will be needing a minimum of 100 blankets PER DAY, EVERY day, just to provide to those in desperate need.  
500 minimum blankets per week… 
2000 minimum blankets per month.

Please help us reach our target of a minimum of 2000 blankets for the month of June and July, and help US make a difference this winter, by offering a " A Gift of Warmth" blanket to someone who desperately needs it.

Please help us make a difference!

Please give what you can, and you too can bless someone in need, a "Gift of Warmth" this winter.

For more information contact: 
Sharon on (+27)790495802 or email [email protected]  

“The most important thing a shelter has to offer someone is safety  – the right to exist without any form of violence.”

WE OFFER HELP AND HOPE REGARDLESS OF RACE OR RELIGION,
OFFERING A “HAND-UP” AND NOT A “HAND-OUT”
BECAUSE WE CARE!
