The season of giving is upon us once again. The greatest gift of all, is the gift of life and we need your help to give a South African child a second chance at life. During our ‘Give a Little, Save a Life’ campaign you can make a once-off donation of R100 or more, and as you contribute towards this cause. You also stand a chance to win some incredible prizes worth the value of more than R100 000.
As the end of the year draws near, the SABMR humbly reflects over the more than 500 lives we have helped save by finding matched unrelated bone marrow stem cell donors for those who had life-threatening blood disorders.
This December, we need your help to raise funds for our latest funding initiative. Sadly, there are patients who lack the financial resources to cover the donor-related costs of a bone marrow transplant. therefore, the SABMR’s new Patient Assistance Programme was developed for South African patients in need of a stem cell transplant from a matched unrelated donor but who do not have the financial resources to formally activate their donor search.
Our goal is to ensure that every adult and child referred to us, can save the best chance at getting that life-saving transplant to lead a full life.
Covering the costs for bone marrow transplants from an international donor is more than double than the cost of a local donor. There is a 6-year-old boy in the Western Cape right now, who needs an international donor.
You can help this child by making a once-off donation during the ‘Give a Little, Save a Life’ campaign. Thanks to our generous sponsors, you’ll stand the chance of winning incredible prizes worth the value of more than R100 000, including getaways, restaurant meals, golf tours, spa experiences, gift vouchers, wine tastings and more.
Our prizes are organised in three tiers. For once-off donations of R100 or more, five names will qualify for prizes worth R500 or more. For donations between R1000 and R1999 or more, there are five prizes to the value of R5 000. For donations between R2000 and R4999 there is a prize worth R20 000 and for donations of R5000 or more, you could stand a chance to win the grand prize, valued at R25,000: a 5-star holiday for four people including 5-star dining and sightseeing, spa and golf experiences.
