Hi, my name is Elizabeth Mac Donald (27) and I live in the North Rand of Johannesburg. I am raising funds to host a birthday party at St. Jane's de Chantal Home in Johannesburg.
I will be giving the children my birthday party, simply because I have had 26 of them and these children quite possibly haven't had one, even though some of the children are as old as 15. The children in this home are abandoned and/or HIV positive.
My main aim is to give these children a full day of fun, something they can remember and smile about in the future. Besides this, I will also be asking for old clothes, toys, books, etc to give the children as well.
Your donation will go towards the hiring of a jumping castle, a cake, some party packs, and some snacks. Should I have any funds left over, this will be directly donated to the home for use where they need it.
I am looking to host the party on 05 October 2019.
Breakdown of costs:
Jumping castle - R800.00
Cake (for 18 children) - R300.00
Party packs (i will be including; a pack of chips, a sucker, a small juice, a toy and a sweet in these) - +-R1260.00
Hot dogs/boerewors rolls - R1000.00
Juice (eg. Oros) - R100.00
Plates, cups, balloons, table, chair, and gazebo hire (if needed) etc - R1500.00
The children seldom get a day where they are able to enjoy and overindulge on sweets and cooldrink and good ol' fun. I will be giving this to the children at no cost to the home.
Not only will this be a benefit to the home in terms of food and entertainment cost for the day in particular, but me bringing attention to this home could prompt others to support and uplift them as well.
As mentioned above I will also be giving all leftover funds to the home to keep.
Your funds will be coming directly to me, I have opened an account especially for this. Should you wish to see receipts once the planning has been done, I will gladly send them over.
