Good day.

Thank you very much for reading my plea and taking the time to consider my proposal. Also, thank you for being a team player, in trying to curb the socio-economic injustices that continue to harass our global society – well done!

I have been running an Emergency Drive Project for the children in our care, at the 4 care centers in Johannesburg and 1 recent center in Durban. We don’t get any form of assistance from the State (Government) thus, we rely on Companies and individuals such as yourself for assistance to keep our babies and children in a loved and cared for environment. We find ourselves in dire straits and on difficult survival mode, having to depend on your generosity.

We now care for approximately 93 babiesandchildren,aged between new born - 17 years that are from abused &abandoned, terminally ill, and impoverished and previously disadvantaged backgrounds.With your help, we cancreate and provide food security; education; a place of safety; a stimulating, empowering, nurturing and uplifting environment for them. At the end of November 2014, sadly we lost yet another sponsorship from two of our major sponsors, due to liquidation, for our children. That put us in a huge predicament, mainly with essential supplies like milk and nappies for the little babies

I would like to appeal to your heart to assist us with a sponsorship for at least 1-3 of my babies without sponsorship, please? How best can you advise me on fundraising for the sweethearts?

Any form of sponsorship is welcome, I am not picky nor will we reject it. Albeit, financial assistance ensures that we cover firstly the nappies, feeding, clothing, housing and medical costs, as well as educating a child for that amount of time. Please help us to keep our vision for these children alive.

Any sponsorship(s) made to the organization is tax deductible, (South Africa),as we attained a Section 18 (A), as well as a Level 2 BBBEE Accreditation (more than 95%) for your rating and scoring.

Would you also be so kind to forward this e-mail to friends, family or your network group whom you believe would be in a position to assist me with this project? For more information regarding my organization, its aims, objectives, vision and how we operate, I urge you to browse through our website by clicking on the link below. Should you be interested in visiting one of our Crisis Care Centers, please let me know and I would be more than happy to arrange a meeting.

Hoping for your most favorable consideration and a visit from you to our care centers.

Kindest Regards and God bless,

Lebo Phaswana

I have posted to my Facebook status. I hope others will do the same. It would help if you defined certain action items with a price attached to each sponsorship.

Hi Yvette,

Thank you for your interest, assistance and kind heart for the children and women in our care centres. I am hopeful Compass sweethearts will soon receive the much needed and urgent help :) 

On average Yvette, sponsorship is for the amount of R 2 100.00 ($210.00) per child, which sustains and helps us look after a baby/child for a period of 3 months - ensuring that nappies, milk, food, clothing, housing, care giving and medical costs are covered.

Any form of sponsorship is welcome, whether on a once off, monthly, quaterly or annual basis; it is upto your heart's desire, we are not picky nor will we reject the help. We strive to change the face of charity by changing lives for the best direction, hence the imperativeness of the COMPASS.

Thank you for helping us keep the vision of success for the women, mothers and children alive :)
