All-Heart were stoked to Donate, collect and Deliver 1000’s of Easter Eggs to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Parade on Thursday 2nd April. Greg was a Crazy Pink and White Easter Bunny ( costume donated by Mardi Gras Costume hire www.mardi.co.za ).
After collecting eggs and chocolates with Partners Xpression on the Bay SUP and SUP Cape Town, Greg the crazy Bunny danced and sung his way through the wards of the hospital with other clowns and Bunny, delivering eggs to the kids, parents , out patients and even the amazing nurses. Smiles and laughs were the order of the day and for a brief moment , some of the pain and suffering was forgotten.
These kids have very little and are in a place that none of ever want to be.
The Friends of the Children Association , helps raise awareness, funds and collect gifts, toiletries and food to help supplement, sustain and keep both the patients and parents fed and kitted with just the basics of a meal and toiletries and essentials ( which many cannot afford)
Pls SMS and donate R20 NOW or anytime you can SMS the words CHILD HEART to 40131
