Personal message

UPDATE:

Please Note That Godfrey's campaign is no longer accepting donations.

The Good Things Guy did a special handover to Godfrey live on Facebook on Monday 29th of October. This is a must watch! Click here

If you are inspired by this story, we encourage you to carry out a random act of kindness for someone who deserves it!

For more information please email info@backabuddy.co.za

We reached the target for collection for Godfrey's smartphone in under 24 hours, and during that time, a Good Samaritan offered to give Godfrey a smartphone for free. Humans are amazing! We thought that Godfrey could then use this money for whatever he wants: fixing up his house in Diepsloot, buying (lots of) airtime to read all the lovely messages about him or buying Christmas presents for his friends and family. 

This man who displays such integrity and inherent kindness is going to have the most wonderful Christmas to remember in 2018! And it is all thank to YOU!

Thank you! xx

Godfrey Makhubela is a modern-day hero.

He rescued me and my daughter from what could have been an awful fate when we broke down in the middle of the N1 highway. His selfless behaviour moved me to tears so I wrote a post about it on Facebook. The post pretty much went viral with thousands of South Africans expressing their appreciation and love for Godfrey and his kindness. The story was then picked up by Good Things Guy and shared even further afield, bringing people to tears and making them remember the spirit of Ubuntu.

This is OUR SOUTH AFRICA!

These are our people and this is why we are so proud to call this country our home.

I managed to track Godfrey down through his employer - Sanral. I spoke to his manager, Kelvin, who had seen the Facebook post and was only too proud of Godfrey. 

He gave me Godfrey's details and I spoke to him, but he had no idea about the Facebook post or subsequent article or shares. He doesn't have a smartphone and can't access the Internet on his phone, so I thought we as a collective could do something about that.

Please help me give Godfrey the Christmas gift he deserves. He didn't want any praise or recognition, but I would LOVE to shower him with praise and gifts. 

He could then buy a smartphone to read all the amazing messages of love and appreciation posted by everyone around the world!
