Anglicans Ablaze Appeal Letter to Congregations in the Diocese of Natal : 3-6 October 2018-Hillcrest
BRING A GIFT FOR THOSE IN NEED THAT WILL BE MULTIPLIED:
Anglicans Ablaze is a conference to ignite individuals, and so impact churches across our nation. With this, we see an opportunity to impact lives practically as well. At this conference our focus will be on Philangethemba, a project run in the Valley of a Thousand Hills. This project is not focused on handouts, but on giving that multiplies. Among their many initiatives, their toy and book library impacts far more children in need with far more variety, than if donations were simply passed on. We would love it if you were able to contribute towards this need please. If every person could bring along 1 or 2 new or nearly new toys and/ or children’s books (English or Zulu) we could make a significant impact – Fr Siphiwe Gumede gives more precise suggestions below. We are hoping that we will have an overabundance and that we can use the overflow to establish a new toy and book library in another needy area, and so further multiply our giving and impact on underprivileged children’s lives. Bring along your gift and place it in the designated area in the foyer of the conference centre. It will be handed over by Bishop Dino and Archbishop Thabo at the Eucharist towards the end of the conference. If you are not attending the conference, you can always send your gift with someone who is attending. Many, many thanks!!!
S’yakhula ECD Training Centre would appreciate educational toys that can be distributed amongst crèches in our servicing community.
