- YEARLY OVERVIEW -

SO YOU WANT TO DO SOME COMMUNITY UPLIFTMENT PROJECTS...

Not sure where to start or what to do…

LETS MAKE THIS EASY FOR YOU

That even rhymes start to sound like the beginning of a song.  First and foremost community projects need to be fun, meaningful and impactful.  They don’t need to cost anything, but understand that there might be some money involved but lets not talk money.  Let’s talk about you and/or your company giving us your hands and hearts FIRST and then going from there.

SO WHERE DO WE START ?

Stick with me and don’t doze off  otherwise you will fall off your chair and your boss will not give that raise that we talk about in “I LOVE ARTS AND CRAFTS”

DECIDE ON A FEW THINGS

Breathe – focus – HERE GOES

FIRSTLY WHICH PROJECT SPEAKS TO YOU ?

Don’t go to a kids project if you don’t like kids(who doesn’t like kids).  If sport is your thing then come and play some beach soccer.  You like painting “LETS DO A CRÈCHE OR PARK PAINT PROJECT”.  This is an important, so think about it.  What really talks to your HEART then….

HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE ?

Do you want to spend and hour or a whole day because the office is getting involved.  We can only do 90 minutes then the boss starts getting nervous or do you have the best boss in the world and he says to you “great initiative, go Friday morning and take the rest of the day off and then you get a raise.”

WHEN IS IT CONVENIENT ?

During the week? Tuesday morning 10am? End of the month is out because we are busy?

Saturdays can work for all or are Saturdays out because its family time and you cant expect your staff to work on weekends.  As an example the Jeep Club decided to do a cleanup up the West Coast, easy family weekend and a full day out in a fun environment with a nice braai to end it off.

HOW MANY TIMES A YEAR/MONTH/WEEK DO YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED ?

Do you want to do a once off project?  Im not a fan of once offs but there are times and places for it.  Can you only commit to joining a beach clean up once a month or do you want to do 4 projects a year for your company?  If so pick 4….. do 1 in February, 1 in May, a cool Mandela day project in July and some team building in October/November. Go for a township tour (January), hands on the ground painting (February), do a small fundraiser (March), bake some bread (April), order some bread (May-December), plant a tree (June), Mandela Month (July), Beach cleanup (August), plant another tree (September), beach soccer (October), go back to the crèche (November), sponsor a kid (December). Not that difficult and it certainly beats sitting around picking your nose and eating it.  Time is a huge factor when deciding which project to do and where to get involved….PLAN AHEAD  – SCHEDULE IT IN

HOW MUCH TIME CAN YOU AFFORD TO BE OUT OF THE OFFICE OR COMMIT TO A PROJECT ?

Let’s be honest not everyone can be out at the same time.  Your boss will kick your butt.  So then decide, this month Friday the accounts department is going to bake bread and then next month sales and marketing do a bread collection/drive and they come drop them off.  Technical guys are always busy however always generous, so they are going to sponsor a kid at the ned of the year on a BEAUTIFUL FUTURE. Lives are also crazy.  Its work, family, friends, gym, church, party, rugby world cup.  When the freak are you supposed to get time to fit this in?  SCHEDULE IT

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU WANT TO INVOLVE IN THE PROJECT ?

Just yourself? A truck load of people?  Come and plant trees with 15 People.  Do it on a Saturday and bring the whole family along on a township tour.  Only half of the office goes in March and the other half goes in April.

ARE YOU STILL AWAKE ?

Right give this all some thought.  Chat to your colleagues and send them our website and tell them to pick a project.  Narrow it down to 3 or 4 if need be.  Pick a date and time then chat to the boss and get the whole family involved.  Then give me (Greg  Player) a call on 082 873 1962 and if you are still confused or need assistance lets chat about it. This is important stuff….The rubbers about to hit the road so lets make it count…LETS MAKE IT REALLY COUNT

AAAAND.......GO
