Give them a head start this Festive Season with #TheGivingBackPack

It’s that time of the year again.  The time of year that sees us spend copious amounts of money in anticipation for the Festive Season. It is also, the time of year that presents may opportunities to do good, by giving back.

Randridge Mall is presenting such an opportunity.  They are giving back this festive season with #TheGivingBackPack. Basically, it’s a back pack filled with all the stationery items necessary to give children in need, an educational kick-start for the 2019 school year.  The initiative runs until the 23rd of December 2018.

The lack of access to education in South Africa is a serious issue.  An issue that a large percentage of our country’s population is faced with on a daily basis. Many school going kids can’t afford simple stationery items such as pens, exam pads and hardcover books for example.  We, however can make difference by participating in Randridge Mall’s initiave.
