Help SPREAD SMILES THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON!
A smile of encouragement at the right moment may act like sunlight on a closed-up flower; it may be the turning point for a struggling life – author unknown
CHRISTMAS! The word alone brings a SMILE to many faces. It is a time of year we want to spread our joy to the ones we love. This is done in many different ways, but one thing is for sure, we all want to have a little fun.
For many years, the Friends of Valkenberg have been running a heartening Christmas Programme for the 400 patients who have to be in the wards at Valkenberg Hospital over this time. These events assist in the recovery of people with mental illnesses by:
ü Providing a fun programme bringing joy and offering opportunities to socialise
ü Endorsing a message of hope in a caring environment
ü Building confidence and self esteem
ü Improving the morale and wellbeing of patients and the 350 staff
HOW YOU CAN HELP
This programme is only possible with the support of generous community partners who want to help us spread smiles at Valkenberg this Christmas.
We would love you to partner with the Friends and give a gift of financial assistance – this could be R100 to pay for 5 gifts, R1000 to fund 2 ward parties or R5000 to fund the ongoing recovery of patients through our many projects planned for 2013.
ALL GIFTS WILL:
· Receive a tax certificate and attract BBBEE points on request.
· Be acknowledged on printed and electronic material of the Trust.
Should you require more information about this programme or want to discuss other opportunities please contact us on 021 447-2092, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via our website www.friendsofvalkenberg.co.za.
