HOW MUCH IS YOUR HUG WORTH?

Share some of the value of your hug with us today to help us hug our broken hearted children tomorrow.

For the past 63 years, our 10 safe homes, 60 therapeutic professionals and 150 support staff have helped restore the lives of more than half a million children harmed by physical or emotional abuse.

DONATE A SHARE OF THE VALUE OF YOUR HUG

Every time you hug your child, spare a thought for what your warmth is worth. By choosing to donate a share of that value to us some of the value of your hug will help us to continue to hug our children too.

They are the thousands who are lost in the trauma of abandonment, exclusion, loss, neglect and physical and emotional abuse – making lonely choices no child should ever be compelled to make. Choices that steal their fragile lives forever.

If, like us, you think one less broken-hearted child makes a big difference to our uncaring world, share the value of your hug with us today, so that all our children get to know the warmth of your hug tomorrow.

By supporting Girls and Boys Town, you make an invaluable difference to the lives of our young beneficiaries and thousands of family and community members.

HEALING BROKEN HEARTED CHILDREN

OUR SAFE HOMES, THERAPEUTIC CARE AND SOCIAL WORK PROTECT AND MEND THE HEARTS AND LIVES OF ALL OF OUR SOCIETIES PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY HURT YOUNG PEOPLE.

Thousands of South African children still get lost to the trauma of abandonment, exclusion, loss, neglect, abuse, or assault every year. Physical and emotional abuse and tough circumstances compel these vulnerable young to make lonely life choices no child should ever have to make; choices that steal their lives, their talent and their light forever. These are the children that Girls and Boys Town care about.

By making our hurt young whole again, healthy individuals and families grow, happier and safer societies thrive and economies get stronger.

For the past 62 years, Girls and Boys Town South Africa has provided safe homes, therapeutic care, social work in communities and life and learning support services to heal the hearts and lives of broken-hearted children and their families.

Since forming in 1958, our S.H.IN.E programme and its unique peer group system has successfully restored light, strength and direction to the lives of over 200 000 children already.

However, we cannot do it alone. We rely on funding almost entirely from the contributions of generous and caring people like you. But we need more help to heal the many more hearts. If, like us, you think our broken hearted children’s lives should change, please help us in any way you can.

LEAVE A LEGACY IN YOUR WILL

Where there’s a will there’s a way …

… to keep on helping vulnerable  young boys and girls for years to come!

Especially if you’ve supported Girls & Boys Town in the past – or you wanted to, but couldn’t afford to make a gift– your Will provides the perfect opportunity for your caring concern to touch the lives of girls and boys far into the future.

By leaving a bequest to Girls & Boys Town, or ceding an endowment or insurance policy to us, you’ll ensure we’ll always be here for youth in need.

Best of all, you don’t need to spend any of your money now! Only when you no longer need it will the money or possessions you leave behind be put to work to change a child’s future.

Many people put off making a Will because they think it’s morbid or ‘tempting fate’. In fact, it’s a necessary and sensible step that brings great peace of mind, knowing your affairs are in order.

For more answers to your questions about Wills and bequests, get your free copy of our helpful booklet by clicking here.
