Chad Nathan, a filmmaker and photographer, has been documenting the lockdown in Cape Town and is now using his work to raise funds for Mandela Day.

 

Cape Town, South Africa (17 July 2020) – Chad Nathan has been documenting the impact of the Coronavirus lockdown in South Africa. He started using his works to raise awareness and funding for four South African organisations working to combat the negative impact the lockdown has had on poor communities.

Chad identified Cans With Purpose, Ladles of Love, Breadline Africa and Courage as the recipients for a crowdfund. The original goal was to raise R100,000, but it has been such a success that the crowdfund has reached nearly R500,000.00. Chad called the BackaBuddy crowdfund, “Raising Hope“.

Now for Mandela Day, Chad is hoping to reach an even higher goal. He would like to raise R67,000.00 for the charities he has supported through the lockdown. This time, however, he has something in return for the donors who help him reach the goal.

“Raising Hope plans to raise R67 000 for Mandela day: swop you’re 67 minutes for R67 and stand a chance to win a two-night stay at Gondwana game reserve.” 

“What is Mandela Day? Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact. The Mandela Day campaign message is: “Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We’re asking you to start with 67 minutes.” I’m asking you to start with R67! Help me raise R67 000 for Raising Hope”

Without a doubt, there is no better experience in life than waking up in the Bush with wild animals on your door step. And when I mean wild, I mean lions eating their breakfast a few meters from you. This is what the magic of Gondwana Game reserve has to offer… and it’s only 4 hours from Cape Town. This magical 11 000 hectare game reserve was out of this world and that is why I have decided to team up with them for Mandela Day to raise money for Raising Hope. ⁣🦓🐘🦏🐃🦛🦒🦌🦚🦔🌳 ⁣ What is Mandela day?
