The Grace Factory is a non-profit organisation that collects baby items at locations in Gauteng and the Vaal Triangle, and distributes these items to other non-profit organisations (such as children’s homes and orphanages). I first met founder Amy Westerman at the first #JoziMeetup. She has a daughter, Erin, who is around about the same age as my little Nicky. Amy has really done something special in creating this charity and is organising an event to put the maternity packs together.
I guess I have a lot of admiration for a mom who not only is negotiating the terrible twos, but works full time as a chartered accountant (total admiration, I’m not that good with numbers) plus manages a charity. I have no idea how she does it but what I do know is that she needs our support.
Amy is organising a packing session of maternity packs. You know that free pack you get at the hospital when you have a baby? Well, government hospitals are not that lucky. Amy has decided to make a difference. If you can volunteer your time or money, here are the details:
Packing Date : 28 March 2015
Time : 1pm – 4pm
Venue : Midrand, exact address to be given when volunteering is confirmed at email@example.com
They will be packing 500 maternity packs.
They urgently still need baby blankets and cash donations.
If you can help in any way, please contact Amy, thanks!
