Pam Green has put a desperate plea out on Facebook to keep her NPO “#SecondChances” running, and she is pulling out all the stops.

Pam Green created #SecondChances just under a year ago after she posted a photograph on Social Media, asking anyone to help with a job for a homeless man, this post went viral, and Pam took an opportunity by the horns!

Her goal was to create social upliftment via social media, she uses social media to bring the country’s attention to individuals in need. These individuals go to #SecondChances through recommendations, direct requests, and more frequently, by being tagged on social media platforms.

She has put a plea out on Facebook for the public to continue to support her amazing initiative, so she can continue to run the project.

“Please don’t make me get a job!

11 months ago, I posted about a beggar named Joseph who was pleading for a job. As many of you may remember, the post went viral and Joseph’s second chance was created. This inspired me to follow my passion and create ‪#‎SecondChances‬ NPO, which has allowed me – and you – to improve hundreds of lives!

Unfortunately, as much as I have tried, I have not been able to secure sponsors to assist with the funds needed to operate the organisation. I have personally cashed out every policy I had just to keep it going. Since this is no longer an option, I have been told to give up this organisation, my dream, my passion, my life’s purpose – and get a job!

I have so many more projects to launch, so many more people to help, so many more jobs to create. I refuse to give up. I refuse to quit!

I am standing at the intersection of Grayston Drive & Rivonia Rd in Sandton, holding this sign, begging the public to help me find sponsors and donations. I invite you – and literally beg you – to consider giving me the exposure I need to achieve this by sharing through your social media platform…

The media helped create #SecondChances – and now it can help keep it open.”

Go to to donate!
