My name is Genevieve. I co-own a little coffee cafe in the heart of Hillcrest, Durban. We are hoping to raise funds for our amazing staff as well as the shop so that we do not have to close our doors. I also run my own registered charity and I am hoping we can pay it forward to the charity as well.
We are wanting to raise funds for our staff and to keep our doors open. We are also planning on using some of the funds raised to pay it forward my registered charity called The Starfish Effect by providing much needed food and toiletries to those have been effected by the shut down that everyone has had to face.
I know that there are many places in need of assistance and my heart is heavy as I wish I had the ability to help everyone but I just cant. In saying this, by raising funds for my coffee shop I am hoping that we will not have to let our staff go, that they will have jobs and be able to feed their families during this trying time. My ladies are not only my staff but they are my extended family and I want to try help them in anyway that I can.
By keeping our doors open we will be able to keep their jobs going and by doing this I can also help my charity who helps everyone with a heart beat from children, to animals to other charities who need assistance. So any help you provide will go such a long way and will make such an impact with so many people. It will create a ripple effect of huge positive outcomes.
