The Help-U Foundation has been established in 2013. We are a charity organisation which raises funds for underprivileged children who are in children’s homes – the aged and fragile and people who are in desperate need.One of our fund raising events is the Help-U Foundation Race for Change.
This event promises to have fun challenges, fun teambuilding exercises, with live entertainment, dinner, auctions and prize giving. With the proceeds we do not just donate money to the institutions; we personally get involved and look into the needs of the senior citizens in the old age homes and children in youth centres.
One of our biggest aims is to celebrate each child’s birthday, which is in a children’s homes. We celebrate their birthdays with them, their friends, brothers and sister that is also in the homes, and make it a memorable day outside of the home with lunch, cake, present and some fun games.
ALL FOR A GOOD CAUSE
LIFE CHANGING MOMENTS
A boy aged eighteen had no will or ambition in life because of his circumstances. I had a one on one talk with him and asked “if there was anything in the world you would like to have, what would it be?” He replied “I don’t have anything and I don’t want anything.” He had a problem being around lots of people and usually walked away from the home when people came to visit. We surprised the children at one of the Christmas parties and took them to the Tiny Tots Animal Farm.
On the way to the venue the boy was negative and wanted to go home. When we arrived something happened and the boy suddenly changed. He started interacting with the animals. Magically he transformed into an extrovert, talking, laughing and even getting along with other people and children. This was the turning point in this boy’s life.
At another Christmas party, we sat and listened to the childrens dreams and their life goals. It was amazing to see the amount of energy and positivity these kids had regardless of their circumstances. It taught us that listening is the foundation to shaping a kids goals and a little support is all that is needed.
