For Aunty Iris Beukes

For Aunty Iris Beukes

Personal message

Imagine your mom and nephew or niece found themselves reduced to tears on a cold, dirty, grocery story floor. All because the inquisitive little five-year-old broke a slab of chocolate still in its wrapper.

Her name is Iris Beukes. She and her grandson deserve more than the R500 shopping voucher and little toy that was given to them as compensation. This initiative seeks to gather donations for them.

The news of this family's ill-treatment in this situation made me sick, angry and sad. It made me think of my mom and niece.

We've seen the news stories, we've seen the images all over social media, we've commented and shared our disgust at this lapse in humanity. So let's actually do something about it!

No donation is too small. If you feel moved to give, please do. If you're unable to give, simply pass the information and this video along.

Be blessed...
