Food drops and fun days!
Mandela Day 2019 Fundraiser
For our inaugural Mandela Day activation, Purple Group rented out the Midrand Action Sports centre to host a sports day against other organisations.
In our very first event of this kind, we were joined by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and Gibbs, where we managed to raise over R25 000 toward our sanitation objectives.
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we won't be able to hold another action-packed sports day this year. However we will continue to raise funds as we look to come back better than ever, ready to take on other organisations!
We want to bring joy and laughter to as many children in our community as we can, and we hit our target in our first festive period as Purple MAP.
Our Christmas Gift Drive in 2019 saw Purple MAP collect and make hundreds of toys and package them for each of the 120+ children at the camp.
With the help and support of our community, we personally collected and wrapped gifts for all of the underprivileged kids at the shelter, and delivered them before Christmas Day.
With the onset of the national lockdown in March 2019, Purple Group staff dug into their own pockets to raise funds for food parcels for those living in the Turffontein refuge camp.
We managed to raise over R25 000 in March toward the food programme executed by St Patrick's church.
The lockdown appears to be far from over, as we look to tap directly into the EasyEquities community to provide assistance to our cause.
