Breaking Bread – Backabuddy Winter 2019 Fundraiser

Breaking Bread – Backabuddy Winter 2019 Fundraiser

Personal message

This winter, Breaking Bread will continue to work with as many homeless people in Observatory and Salt River as possible, and we're asking for your assistance to do this.

Many of Cape Town's residents will be feeling the effects of the torrential rain and strong winds. While this may have caused significant issues for a great many people, it would be almost inconceivable to think about surviving outside during these conditions. Unfortunately, thousands of homeless people battle them every day and spaces in shelters has not improved recently.

Breaking Bread actively works with between 50 - 75 people every day by providing a meal via our Feeding Programme. We're still looking for some suitable premises, but this doesn't deter our tireless co-director Sheradia, who serves everyone from her own home in Salt River. At this time, we're only concentrating on feeding people and handing out physical donations (clothing, toiletries, feminine hygiene products).

This winter, please help us continue to provide some necessary provisions for the people we work with every day. We're hoping to raise R 10, 000 to help keep our organisation running. After paying for our year-end financials and outlaying all our remaining funds on our Feeding Programme, we're facing a struggle to cover next month's operational costs.

Any money donations made will go towards the food supplies needed for our Feeding Programme, which always sees an increase in numbers during the winter months.

Do you want to become more involved with our organisation? Backabuddy have a fantastic platform for people who wish to raise money for an organisation or cause by becoming a Champion.

All you then do is follow this link for further information. You will then be asked to complete a form which is returned to the Backabuddy team. They will get in touch with you to discuss what being a Backabuddy Champion involves, but the type of fundraising you decide to do is entirely up to you.

If you like the sound of becoming a Backabuddy Champion for Breaking Bread, but you're not sure what to do next, please feel free to contact us, and we'll discuss the various fundraising events we've used in our past campaigns.

On behalf of the Breaking Bread team, we'd like to thank everyone that helps us continue our work through their financial and physical donations, with special thanks to Jon Muller for organising regular fundraising football tournaments.

Everyone who donates is literally saving lives.
