Cherae gathered teddies to bring some cheer

Cherae Olivier always wanted to assist in the community and was prompted into action when she realised that cheering up children was a good place to start.

Together with her family and friends she collected 114 teddies, including a giant pink shark that the children at Blessings Day Care in Diepsloot adored! Each child was given a brightly coloured gift bag with a teddy, a chocolate egg and a party toy just in time for the 2016 Easter holidays. She also managed to get the school a fridge.

“I believe that everyone can do something and that helping others grow and develop is vital! We live in a beautiful country and there is so much potential and many amazing people in it. Unfortunately, through circumstances, many are at a disadvantage. I believe by us helping as many people as we can we will be able to instil a sense of hope, motivation and purpose.”

Through her own charity, Grace, Cherae has many other projects on the horizon.
