On one of Thabazimbi’s sweltering, humid, hectic days a friend (Antoinette) popped into the shop, a paper clutched firmly in her hand… Between the telephone chirping and countless clients she started explaining… she had a Christmas ‘wish list’ from 21 teenagers at the Abraham Kriel Orphanage in Nylstroom. (11 Boys and 10 girls 12 years – 17 years)
The children were asked what they really would like most for Christmas – she handed me the paper and very soon I felt very small, my eyes filled up with tears.
They didn’t want I pods or fancy cameras… on the list was, a toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, airtime, deodorant, soap, blank cd’s, a hairdryer, a watch.
Anyone who would like to donate anything for these children can drop these things of at J&B Jewellers, we have also received cash donations and will buy each child a gift voucher, then they can choose their own clothes etc.
We live in a wonderful place, amongst many special friends; please help us to give these children a very merry Christmas. Many thanks ‘B’ 014 772 2629
We are planning to deliver it about 15 November.
