Do something amazing this Christmas. Help give a gift to the less fortunate children in Jeffreys Bay.
Hundreds of children in the Kouga region will not receive a Christmas present this year unless the residents rally round to help them.
This year the Kouga Express, in conjunction with Pick `n Pay and Fountains Mall, will be collecting gifts for the 343 deserving learners at King’s College in Pellsrus, Jeffreys Bay.
Without the generous support of local residents this initiative will fail.
Each learner has written his or her wish onto a special Christmas “wish card”, with their names and age.
Wishes range from nail polish to a guitar and from an art set to a Barbie doll.
Some little boy is dreaming of his first ever Ninja Turtle toy or a ball, while another girl cannot wait to go to church with her new hair accessories.
There are even practical wishes like stationary for school. These cards are displayed on the Christmas tree in the forecourt at Pick `n Pay in Fountains Mall.
How it works
Residents are able to select the wish card or cards that appeal to them and buy the gifts written on the cards.
Residents can either wrap the presents themselves, or have them wrapped by the Kouga Express team.
The learner’s name, age and grade must be clearly marked on the present. Each card is unique to a deserving child, and so if a card is taken and not returned, it means that a learner could miss out on a present for Christmas.
Presents can be dropped off at either the Kouga Express’s office at 75 Da Gama Road in Jeffreys Bay or at Pick `n Pay.
All the presents must be returned by November 25. The presents will be handed out to the learners at a Christmas party at the school on December 4.
