Our good friend Juan Venter has started up a great initiative with the help of 3rd Place. For those of you who don't know who or what 3rd Place is, Juan describes them as a non-profit organization spreading the love of God in a broken world. For more info about them, check out there Facebook page!! Below is a piece explaining what Juan has started:
" 'n-jas-wat-netjies-pas is an initiative to help the less fortunate this winter. While we snuggle up in our warm houses and beds this winter, there are people that will have to sleep on the street, with nothing more than cardboard to keep them warm. 'n-jas-wat netjies-pas project entails the following:
The coats are purchased by n-jas-wat-netjies-pas for R45 each and the windbreakers for R25 each. The coats are then sold to the public for R80 each and the windbreakers for R60 each. Once you have purchased a coat or windbreaker, you then have the option to give what you have purchased to someone who really needs it this winter (There might be suffering in your immediate surrounding). The R35 profit per coat or windbreaker will be given to 3rd place, to distribute or use as they see fit. The objective of this project is not profit, nor is it personal gain. The purpose of this project is to become personally involved in helping the less fortunate. The coats and windbreakers will be available at the 3rd Place space as of Sunday evening the 29th of April. Sunday evening teachings at 3rd-Place are at 17:00 and 18:30. You are more than welcome to contact me in the week if you want to buy a coat. "
