Saving Carnival Court

Personal message

Carnival Court Backpackers want to collect funds to assist local backpackers to stay afloat in Cape Town during this pandemic. 

In a world with an estimated 5.5 billion people we are looking for 1 million kind soles to donate a minimum of R1.00 to help Carnival Court keep its doors open and which will allow us to keep on our 9 staff members.

Our vision:
1 campaign,
1 person
1 moment
1 kind act
1 click
1 million people
1 donation


South Africa has been in total lockdown since the 26th of March 2020 and it has just been announced that our lockdown has been extended by a further two weeks ending the 30th of April 2020. Tourism in South Africa has come to a grinding halt. This is hard for many people but has been amplified for Cape Town Tourism as we have just started clawing our way back from the worst drought in 100 years. We want to raise funds to assist small backpackers and hostels with monetary donations.

The major impact this campaign will have is to preserve jobs for employees. Unemployment is extremely high in South Africa and we at Carnival Court do not want to add to this burden.

The funds will be used to assist backpackers and hostels keep their doors open during this difficult period. Monies will be used to keep paying staff and assist in paying other utilities with no obligations of paying back money or interest.

Carnival Courts monthly expenses are:

Salaries: R 47 500.00

Rent: R 74 520.00

Utilities: R15 525.00

Essential operating costs: R 2220.00
