South Africans have been finding good deeds and celebrating the people who do these #JustRightDeeds.
South Africa – South Africans perform good deeds every day to make the lives of others a little better. And their fellow citizens are taking notice! We regularly celebrate the people who do good in South Africa on this channel, but we wanted to highlight those who have gone above and beyond to find what’s #JustRight for those in need by providing them with exactly what they need when they need it.
Just Property has been encouraging people to share the good deeds they have witnessed on social media. They want to show just how passionate South Africans are about each other.
Here are just a few of the #JustRightDeeds performed this week.
Young girl sets example by making sandwiches for hungry school children
A group of women in the Table View area of Cape Town make sandwiches each week for underprivileged school children. Johan Botha was asked by his young daughter if she could join the project. Moved by his daughter’s good heart, he bought the supplies she needed and helped her make sandwiches for school children in need.
“My mother-in-law belongs to a group in Table View called ‘Mothers that Care’ and they make sandwiches every week for schools in need in our area. My daughter decided that she would like to be a part of it, so my wife let her make some [sandwiches] to send with the group. It was a great life lesson for her”
Johan was so moved by their efforts he wanted to share their story. It’s so inspiring to see younger generations lead by example by making a #JustRight difference!
Man is inspired to make South Africa a greener place
Adrian Phipps started to realise his impact on the planet and decided to make small changes to his lifestyle. One of those changes was to plant more trees, so he joined an organisation that focuses on reforestation. He recently helped in planting the organisation’s 7500th tree!
“I started becoming more conscious of humankind’s impact on the planet. I felt the need to make a change to my living habits. Instead of getting bogged down by the sad state of our planet, I decided that I would change my ways and hopefully, in turn, educate others as I travel this path of being eco-friendly.”
Adrian used the #JustRightDeeds platform to challenge a friend to do the same. We all depend on the earth for survival, so well done on looking after her, Adrian!
University student makes toys out of recycled plastic for underprivileged children
Julie Ann Kreusch of Durban identified the good work done by her friend, Paige Germaine.
Paige is a full-time education student, works at an aftercare in the afternoon and still finds time to volunteer at a number of children’s homes, and she’s only 21 years old. Besides caring for the children and playing with them, Paige also loves crafting toys for them out of recycled plastics, like skipping ropes. It’s so refreshing to see young people stand up and make a difference, especially while minimising their impact on the environment. We think that’s #JustRight!
We have teamed up with Just Property to celebrate the good deeds that South Africans do daily. Every week we will celebrate a deed right here on this platform, but we need your help!
Here’s how you can get involved:
1. TELL us on social media about someone who performed a #JustRight Deed.
2. TAG a friend to do the same.
3. USE #JustRightDeeds and #JustProperty.
