TWD Raises Over R200 000!

The TWD Flash Mob caused a stir at Greenmarket Square

On Human Rights Day, 21 March 2013, over 460 people across Cape Town all did something different to make a difference through the campaign TWD, or ‘That Was Different’. Some hiked up three peaks in one day, others dressed as superheroes and went sightseeing, while others ran, jumped, kayaked, cycled and danced. The activities, or challenges, couldn’t have been more different but the heart behind them all was the same – to help improve the situation of education and employment in South Africa.

We’ve received R228 000 through TWD and the donations are still coming in! Throughout this week we will be posting stories to this blog, but in the meantime check out the TWD Facebook page here for an album of photos from the day.

Well done to everyone who took part! And thank you for contributing to making a difference in our city 🙂

Check back in tomorrow for our first activist story.
