Mandela Day is one of my favourite days. You see people from all parts of our city and country come together to make a difference.
This year BigEye Branding decided to step out the box. We decided to step onto the streets with the unloved, uncared for and homeless. Our team pulled together and packed goodie bags for 69 homeless people – bags filled with dignity and things that we so often take for granted.
That evening we stepped onto the streets and spent time feeding and loving on those that are most desperate. It was a humbling experience and always such a beautiful reminder of how lucky we are to go home to a decent meal and warm bed.
In true BigEye style, our team did more than just pack and distribute goodie bags, we spent the morning with the beautiful little souls from HOLAH babies home, cuddling and playing with the 10 children that are currently in the transition home waiting for their forever homes.
The most awesome part about this, is that BigEye doesn’t wait for special occasions to make a difference to the lives of others – our team is forever coming up with ways of impacting and loving those in need!!
