Good Deeds Day Festive Charity

A young SA boy wanted to share the festive spirit this year by collecting non-perishables for a children’s charity and decided to share the idea with SA.


Matthew’s Magic is a small little home-based charity started by 10-year-old Matthew, a generous young boy, who wanted to encourage others to help make a change in the lives of children. He teamed up with ‘Little Brinks‘ and started collecting items the organisation would need to care for abused, neglected and needy children.

Little Brinks was started in 2008 and has dedicated itself to helping children in need and making sure no child goes to bed hungry or hurt.

Matthew and his mom decided to do the reverse advent calender and start collecting items that would be useful to ‘Little Brinks’.

“Matthew thought we’d share the idea and see just how much we can get together.”

These are some of the items you can start collecting today that will make a difference this festive season.

  • Tinned food
  • Toothpaste
  • Soap
  • Nappies
  • Rice
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Mealie meal
  • Dried soup mix
  • Packet soups
  • Tea
  • Instant coffee
  • Sweets
  • Powdered milk
  • Baby wipes
  • Tissues
  • Toilet paper

This idea can be adapted to any charity you support, whether is be to collect animal food and care products, or focus on women’s charities. You can take part and help ‘Little Brinks’ if they are in your area or your nearest charity. One small thing every day can make a massive difference this festive season.
