Taryn Winer inspired the Angel Network by using her daughter’s 7th birthday to do some good for orphans in South Africa, gifting useful goodie bags to the charity.
Johannesburg, South Africa (19 February 2020) – Keeping children entertained at parties is the best way to avoid everything descending into chaos. One mom decided to do an activity with all her daughter’s friends that would not only keep them entertained but teach them the value of giving back.
Taryn Winer set up an activity that saw children making up little buckets filled with essentials for orphans. Each bucket contained some underwear, a t-shirt, toothpaste and toothbrushes and other useful items.
Each child filled a bucket and then decorated it. The activity was a great lesson on giving back to others.
The Angel Network celebrated the idea’s creativity, and we have to agree! Many people donate their birthday gifts or ask for donations for a specific charity in lieu of gifts. People are always finding ways to give back, and we love celebrating that!
The Angel Network is a voluntary organization, run solely via the power of social media. The initiative is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO: 181-947).
“Our goal is to create a gateway for giving. A platform from which helping where help is needed, is easily accessible to anyone wanting to do a little more, and give a little more. The Angel Network enables, facilitates and mobilises acts of kindness.”
The Angel Network is not affiliated to any one charity, but rather offers assistance to established welfare organisations, whenever and wherever help is needed.
“We provide a portal to offer help wherever help is needed, by giving a hand up, rather than a handout.”
When donation buckets were completed, Taryn arranged for them to go to the Angel Network who will distribute them to orphans or vulnerable children in need.
