Natascha Bracale met a man selling bumper stickers on a street corner, she learned his inspiring story and is now helping him spread hope in SA.


Cape Town, South Africa – A man with hope for South Africa came up with a way to put food on his family’s table that wouldn’t include begging. He hated the idea of sitting at home, complaining about a lack of jobs.

Ronnie, the man with a plan, decided to start a small business that will inspire hope in his fellow South Africans. Natascha Bracale met Ronnie while he was trying to sell his “No to Racism” bumper stickers.

He explained to her, his purpose for selling the stickers. She became inspired by his drive and wants to inspire others to help her invest in his small business.

Natascha shared his story on Facebook and asked people to help him succeed.

“Hi all! This is Ronnie.
I met him today standing on the sidewalk in Wynberg/Chelsea area.
He was full of smiles, incredibly positive and very polite.

I gave him a small donation towards his project and he was over the moon grateful. He told me he is trying to do something for himself and for the country.

Firstly, he doesn’t want to beg and he is sick of people sitting at home and moaning about not having work.
So he is getting these bumper stickers and car licence stickers printed for people to buy to make some money for himself and also to spread a great message about everyone in SA standing together.”

She went on to explain how people can assist Ronnie.

“The guy printing these stickers is quite expensive so is looking for assistance in that regard and also an old phone and old laptop to work from, or even any small monetary donation.

You are welcome to call him directly on the number provided (his phone works but isn’t great).

I am in the area often so can deliver any donations you have to him as well.”

She commended his drive to succeed and inspire hope.

“What an awesome attitude – I think he deserves a helping hand! Please share!”
