Help little girls feel special this festive season

Jacky Martin, chairperson, 3R Foundation

As 2021 draws to a close, we are reminded that the Covid-19 pandemic has certainly taught us how important it is to help one another.

At 3R Foundation, we are fortunate to still be in a position to run our third, annual Christmas Princess Appeal to give girls, aged 3 to 12, in single-parent households, a gift bag with a beautiful dress and other clothing for the festive season.

Most of the families we work with struggle to buy essentials such as food and clothing. Over the past two years of running this appeal, we have heard amazing stories of how little girls were made to feel special, valued, loved and protected. We hope to continue and show that every girl matters while spreading the message that violence against women and children has no place in our society.

We are asking the public to donate R150 or more towards a clothing gift bag; new or slightly worn dresses and casual clothing for girls aged 3 to 12; and sweets, chips, chocolates, juices and girls’ toys for treat packets.
