I first became involved with Kids Haven in 2008 when I was the MD of Midnight Oil Channel Marketing. We had so many promotional items in our warehouse that we no longer needed and I thought that I would rather put them to use. I identified Kids Haven since I live in Benoni and realized that I was not involved with any community projects at all.
That was the beginning of good things to come because since then I became both a contributor AND a board member in early 2009 using my skills to assist in steering the organization in a positive direction.
I have since moved to FleetAfrica with offices around the country and a large depot in Isando. With my connection to Kids Haven and the recommendation that I have been able to give because I know this place so well, FleetAfrica has selected Kids Haven as a beneficiary of the 2016 blanket and jacket drive taking place on 1 July 2016.
I would really like to challenge like-minded managers and executives in corporate and public offices to be involved in the day to day successful running of places such as Kids Haven. Your business skills will be extremely useful to any Organization and connects you to the good work that is taking place in your own community. Start close to home and investigate all the Organizations who are making a difference on the ground. You can make a difference.
