The Secret Love Project is raising money for winter rain protection for the homeless in Cape Town.
As a registered charity and non-profit company we offer the homeless a lifeline out of poverty and a fresh path to re-integration into society. Every month we give out 10,000 FREE heart sticker packs to over 100 registered sellers, who sell them to motorists at R20 each and keep 100% of the sale. This puts R200,000 a month (R2,4million/year) into the hands of the most needy in our community. The sellers can afford food and shelter and selling heart stickers spreads a message of love in our community.
This campaign is to raise funds for durable full body rainsuits for our sellers and other homeless in Cape Town. We are aiming to produce 200 rainsuits for the homeless and they cost us around R250 each to produce. In the cold & rainy weather, these rainsuits really help the homeless to be protected and to keep illness at bay. For our sticker sellers it keeps them dry while they're spreading love, and making their own money to pay for food and shelter for their families.
PLEASE HELP THE HOMELESS STAY WARM AND DRY THIS WINTER!!!
for the price of a round of drinks you could keep someone dry the entire winter and beyond ;)
PLEASE HELP, THANK YOU!

The Secret Love Project
The Secret Love Project (SLP) is a registered charity in Cape Town. This organization provides homeless people with a free product, heart stickers, that they in turn sell, keeping 100% of the profits. The heart stickers encourage a positive exchange between buyer and homeless seller. The sellers become sell sufficient and the buyer spreads a meesage of love by either sticking the stickers to their car or giving the sticker pack to friends or family. The spirit of the project is to build community through love compasssion and care.
The SLP also provides winter wear to the homeless who brave the incredibly cold and wet months on the street. Over the last five years the project has become part of Cape Town culture and Capetonians identify themselves as people on a misison to spread love. It has truly become a phenomenon.
The vision is to expand opperations, partner up with other NGO's and provide an integrated upliftment program through various collaborations. Aiming to help people off the streets and equip them with practical skills. Everyone deserves a lifeline. That's what the SLP is.
This beautiful and loving charity needs your help!
