** UPDATE **
We have selected One Small Act of Kindness as our charity for year 1. They are currently supporting a lady named Queeny who they found sleeping on the streets under plastic bags with her 5 day old baby, Berlin, wrapped in only a towel. A safe place to stay and clothes have been organized however her breastmilk is drying up so they’re trying to raise funds to buy her formula as she was giving Berlin Cremora as formula. Thank you to Chantelle Adams for nominating this charity and this Mother and baby, we are so happy the funds are going to make a difference for them. We are also sending them an Ubuntu Baba Stage 1 carrier so she can keep Berlin close and safe wherever she goes. Thank you to everyone who purchased from our Ubuntu Baba Happiness Range and helped to make this donation possible and most importantly, thank you to Kelly Ann Strydom from One Small Act of Kindness for all the amazing work you do in the world and giving those less fortunate than us something to smile about again.
** UPDATE **
Bright, light and full of joy! That was the idea behind the Ubuntu Baba Happiness Range of limited edition carriers that we launched in August 2016. It’s a simple daily reminder that a smile is contagious and that the more we give, the more we receive.
10% of these carrier purchases go towards the Ubuntu Baba Happiness Fund and at the end of each business year (Feb), we select a local charity of our choice and donate the money to a very worthy cause.
So we’ve just reached the end of Year 1 of the fund and we currently have R4381.50 in our Happiness Fund! Yippee! It feels so nice to have been able to accumulate this money and now have the opportunity to do good with it.
Seen that this is your money that made this possible, we’d like to know from you who you would like us to donate the money to. Please comment below or send me an email and let me know who your favourite local charities are and we’ll choose the one that resonates most with us.
Thank you once again for your support and making the Ubuntu Baba Happiness Fund possible!
