#IMSTAYING

Personal message

#ImStaying started out as a Facebook group aimed at encouraging and uplifting South Africa and it's people.

Never did we imagine that the group would inspire a nation as it has, and move from a Facebook page to a powerful movement that seems to now carry the hopes and dreams of our great people. As we move forward it is essential that we take this positive sentiment and turn it into inspired action that seeks to reduce unemployment and help grow our economy.

In order to do this we have to formalize #ImStaying into an NGO.

We as #ImStaying have a series of innovative initiatives such as merchandising and events, the funds of which will all go toward operational expenses and creating our own funds to help start and power small business in South Africa. Depending on the support we receive, our fundraising target is likely to increase so we can make more of an impact.

There have been growing calls from our group members to open up this public funding mechanism which we are very excited about.

This move will ensure that each member who contributes to the fund, will have had a hand not only in bringing someone's dreams to fruition, but simultaneously helping to grow our economy. Our members will get to see this grow and unfold in front of their eyes and know that it was all as a result of us coming together as South Africans for a brighter tomorrow.

All funds received will be administered through BackaBuddy and will be fully transparent. The Fund will also be independently audited.
