EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS – ESPECIALLY IN RANDS!
How would you feel if you stopped at a red traffic light and street children swarmed your car begging for money? Would you feel angry? Disgusted? Distressed?
And how would you respond to their pleas? Would you stare forward and ignore them? Silently wave them away? If compassion got the better of you, would you give them a bit of spare change to help make a difference to their day?
Wouldn’t you rather help make a difference to their lives?
You can – by donating just $5 (or R50) a month to The Salesian Institute Youth Projects.
The Salesian Institute Youth Projects help change the lives of hundreds of Cape Town’s at-risk children and young adults every year. Through job training, education and life skills development, these broken and desperate young people learn discipline, motivation and self-respect. They are given the guidance and support they need to get on with their lives – at home, at school and at work.
For a minimum monthly debit order donation of just $5 a month – the price of a hamburger – you can help to provide an ever-growing number of vulnerable youth with the care, guidance and skills that they need to grow into confident, productive adults.
Please complete the debit order authorisation form and fax or mail it to us today. Your spare change can make a difference – for a lifetime.
A heartfelt thank you from the children and youth of the Salesian Institute Youth Projects
P.S. In recognition of your monthly contribution, we will send you a car windscreen decal identifying you as a Salesian Institute Youth Projects donor.
