We at Orms believe that the spirit of Mandela Day should be carried on for more than just one day, which is why this year we celebrated Mandela Month.
Every year at Orms we strive to celebrate the true spirit of beloved President Nelson Mandela by giving back to our community. This year we decided to extend Mandela Day into Mandela Month and asked you, our photographic community to join in and help us help those in need. From 18 July to 18 August Orms offered our online and in-store clients the opportunity to purchase two beanies and pledged to match each and every donation received.
If you were one of our donators, a big, big thank you to you for your kindness in joining us on our journey to come together and warming our community this Mandela Month.
All donations were taken to the incredible Bread For Life initiative which aims to provide a nutritious meal to those in need in the safety of Bree Street’s Love Thy Neighbour every Monday evening. Since its humble beginnings in 2005, founding member and resident pastor Brother Johnny believes that feeding the stomach and the soul are interconnected. That’s why each week at Bread For Life all members are invited to attend a service intended to restore hope in what is often a hopeless life while living on the streets. For more information on the Bread For Life initiative have a look at their website here, be sure to give them a follow on Facebook and help spread the hope!
