Bermuda Lily's Gift

E-mail Print

lily006You don't have to be a certain age nor live in South Africa to help FoodBank serve our nation's 14 million hungry.  Young Lily Theriault of Bermuda raised US$140 (R1033) for FoodBank South Africa in lieu of gifts on the occasion of her fourth birthday party in September. Lily sets a fine example to us all of how You Can Help those less fortunate, no matter how little or far away you are.

Birthdays are a great time to practice and teach the African concept of ubuntu - that we are only a person through other people.  Lily became a year older, but importantly, became a bigger person by making an action that touches 2 000 people in a single day: Through our corporate donors, the R 1 033 donated is matched by 15 litres of fuel from a logistics sponsor, and 650 kg of good quality food from our food donors, which in turn allows us to provide 2 000 quality meals to an orphanage, school, AIDS shelter or any of the over 900 organisations FoodBank helps.

Join Lily and her friends in helping solve hunger in South Africa. Click here to find out here how you can become a FoodBank Fundraiser!
