Thanks to the generosity of Ballito Junction Regional Mall shoppers over the festive season, thousands of rands were raised to help make a difference to the lives of children in need.
A total of R47,186.70 was handed over to the Reach For A Dream Foundation recently which will help the organisation fulfil the dreams of children bravely battling life-threatening illnesses.
Funds for the charity were raised through the centre’s gift wrapping kiosks where shoppers enjoyed the convenience of having their Christmas gifts wrapped and the chance to lend a hand by donating to Reach For A Dream.
CEO of Ballito Junction Regional Mall, Geraldine Jorgensen, says: “We are so thankful to our shoppers who helped raise more than last year’s festive season. We are especially thankful for the opportunity to inspire hope in many more children and our hope is that our gift wrapping stands will be just as successful in December 2019.”
Kerry Donkin, Reach For A Dream KZN Branch Manager, added: “We at Reach For A Dream are grateful to Ballito Junction and their patrons for partnering with us during the gift wrapping fundraiser. We love it when our local communities get involved and support the work we do. Each donation makes an invaluable difference in encouraging children faced with life threatening illnesses to believe in the power of dreams. Thank you to everyone for being a part of the dream making team.”
