Faf du plessis Profile Information

  • I have the privilege to be a messenger for donors and a witness of generosity transformed into warm meals. Kids have an infectious joy. Whilst they were waiting today, I could wait with them and catch a glimpse of a world which I am unfamiliar with. The heart of a child. We have so much to learn from these kids, but how often do we get to stop and see the world through their eyes?  Thank you to every donor, every cook and every person behind the scenes who work so hard to create a daily connection point for children. Your love is visible.  Thank you for having us today - Sakha Ingomso Foundation in Khayelitsha, Little Leaders Educare Centre in Monwabisi Park, Revelation Ministries in Lavender Hill and Philisa Abafazi Bethu in Lavender Hill.  Thank you to all our generous donors bringing in R74 859 this week. Long way to get to our  goal, but excited for the communities we will connect to along the way.  Link in Bio

  • It’s very cold and very wet outside and I’m in my home where I have everything I need. Warm clothes, food and a roof over my head, with no idea of what it is like to have nothing and to stand in line just to get some food.  My heart can’t handle kids that don’t have what I can give my daughter. I want to help!!!! We have partnered with @hillsongafricafoundation and several local community projects across our metro to serve 2 meals per day to a child for R5. Our goal is to alleviate stress on these projects that serve 35000 children. Our kids will carry us into the future, we cannot afford kids growing up without hope. They should be dreaming and growing - not carry a load they aren’t ready for.  I’ve created a link in my profile with more information. We have tax certificates available on the donation form for anyone who require it, international donations are open and corporate information packages available.

  • My princess and I on our way to the seaside. I’m so grateful for this beautiful world and appreciate all the small things so much more. What I really love about this time is that morning walks/runs are filled with people, which is not something I have experienced a lot of in South Africa. I hope we can take that into the seasons to come.

  • #repost .... @imagesbyimari  As a mom I carried this message around heavily in my heart. Faf and I raised funds on Instagram over and beyond what we could imagine. For every generous donor who helped feed our 172 people target, I would like to let you know that we were able to do that. BUT we could  also reach the goal of stocking the pantry of Philisa Abafazi with 3/4 of the ingredients required to provide warm meals to 1500 for 2 weeks. This week will see the following delivery to their cooking efforts. Huge thank you to @kfcsouthafrica and @hopeworldwidesouthafrica for helping us source this donation. Best birthday every!  500 L water 50 kg pasta 20kg sugar 700 tins of baked beans  50 kg green split peas 100kg red split lentils 100kg soup mix 10 L cooking oil 800g curry powder 800g turmeric 800 tins of pilchards 10kg salt 50kg rice  For anyone who still want to contribute.

  • #Repost @imagesbyimari with @make_repost ・・・ Inexplicable gratitude is running down my face. My tears are all I have in this moment.  A week ago we felt a calling to help by doing more than making a donation. We shared a video that broke our hearts. I prayed for someone to be sent out way to help on that day.  Just an hour later @fafdup got a message from a wonderful man we know. He lives in the centre of all the riots we shared on our stories. Rioting interrupted their community effort to provide 172 people with hot meals and it wasn’t possible to continue. We really didn’t know where to begin to help, but we asked and then the floodgates started opening.  In 24 hours we raised R17200 to feed those families. We were elated at this victory. But in the days that followed we faced another silent battle to responsibly carry the goodness donated to those in need of an urgent breakthrough. Logistics. Our wholesalers were inundated and food stock outages were an issue. To multiply the seed in our hands by finding the best price and value, whilst abiding by our President’s urge to be responsible was a challenge.  After struggling to find the solution for days, the right person walked into our lives and sourced everything we needed. A story started by an Instagram post, funded by individuals around the world, moved into action with the help of @hopeworldwidesouthafrica and @makro_sa and collected by our contact in the community will reach the homes of families waiting for comfort this evening.  If I had to summarize this experience in one word it would be - MERCY. We don’t take anyone’s kindness for granted. It is mercy. 🙏

  • This season has taught me what an incredible privilege it is to have food on my table.  To support our small farmers, we chose Cape Town based online retailer, @buyfresh.co.za to bring the local farmer’s market to our home.  With every order placed on their website a meal is donated to someone in need via their "Bag A Meal" partnership with @foodforwardsa

  • I decided to team up with local heroes. The brands, who support the smaller scale farms and suppliers. The dreamers who once built a livelihood for a whole team of employees and now fight to keep their team together.  @ucooksa is a partner in the fight against hunger.  With every Meal Kit purchased, UCOOK will donate between R5 and R12.50 of the sale directly to the Food Fund. Plus, theyll match & double every contribution from customers.  Every Rand raised through the UCOOK Food Fund will go towards ensuring that the people affected most by the economic fallout have enough nutritious food to eat every day. With your help, @ucooksa is donating money to support incredible partners who are dedicated to eradicating hunger across the country.  I love cooking, but sometimes lack the inspiration and preparation beforehand. Now that I have some extra time I’m back to pack the heat in the kitchen thanks to clever sourcing🔥
