Hi my name is Antoine de Ras and I am raising funds to help save the income of our eleven staff members whose livelihoods depend on our café.
The Richmond Studio cafe.
To all our Richmond Studio Cafe friends and family.
Our café was born as a community space. We wanted to create a relaxed spot where the neighbourhood and photography communities could come together. We’ve loved being that place for you.
It is an understatement to say that the Covid-19 lockdown has been a disaster for the economy and businesses in general, as well as the possible death knell for small businesses like ours. Overnight we lost all revenue.
Our talented baristas, our kitchen – they’ve all felt the impact of this. It’s a trying time, and we aren’t sure if we’ll come out of it intact.
We’ve been thinking about how to save the income of our eleven staff members whose livelihoods depend on our café. We are supplying food parcels but those will run out.
We need your help
We need you. You can either donate to our fund or share our post with your friends and family.
If we’ve been part of your life, if you’ve enjoyed one of our cappuccinos, filled up on a spicy chicken melt or sat in a corner with your laptop – your help will allow us to still be here after this.
Every rand will go straight towards helping our team. Every rand will help.
If you can’t contribute, please share our campaign. You might open a door to someone who can.
If you would like to contribute any amount no matter how small if would be greatly appreciated and as a thank you for your help we would like to offer you the following.
1. Any donation up to R100 and you will receive a coffee of your choice.
2. Any donation between R100 - R1000 gets you a coffee and a 15 min studio photo shoot.
3. Any donation between R1000 - R2500 gets you a Pizza and a beverage with a professional photo shoot to the value of R850.
4. Any donation of R2500 and above and you will receive a Pizza and a beverage with a professional studio photo shoot to the value of R4500.
We hope for you to join us soon again once the lockdown has been lifted and to be part of our new Richmond Studio cafe concept store.
Once again, thank you. It has been a pleasure to be part of your lives, and we hope that we soon will be again.
Go safe and best wishes.
Antoine de Ras and the Richmond team.
The campaign will help alleviate the desperate financial situation the 11 staff members are currently facing with regards to their livelihoods and provide them with the much needed financial assistance to help buy food and to pay their bills.
The funds will be allocated in equal amounts to the individual staff members and to any medical /medication emergencies that they might need assistance with.
