It’s the season of giving, and we need your help to give four children the gift of life! Make a once-off donation of R100 or more during the’ Give a little, save a life’ campaign, and you could win prizes including vouchers, luxurious holidays and spa treatments.
At the end of each year, we at the SABMR like to count our blessings. To date, we’ve helped save the lives of over 400 patients with life-threatening blood disorders by matching them with healthy, unrelated bone marrow donors from South Africa and the rest of the world. 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. The SABMR’s new Patient Assistance Programme will support these patients, as our goal is to ensure that every adult and child referred to us can have the best chance at getting that life-saving transplant and going on to lead a full life.
LIVES YOU CAN HELP US SAVE RIGHT NOW
A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL WITH LEUKAEMIA
Referred by doctors at a state hospital in the Eastern Cape
AN 8-YEAR-OLD BOY WITH A HEREDITARY FORM OF ANAEMIA
Currently being treated at a state hospital in the Western Cape.
A BROTHER AND SISTER
Both have a hereditary form of anaemia, referred by a state hospital in Limpopo. This is an extremely rare case: one child in the family was diagnosed with the blood disorder; shortly afterwards the parents discovered their other child had the same disorder.
You can help these children by making a once-off donation during the ‘Give a Little, Save a Life’ campaign. Thanks to our 22 generous sponsors, you’ll stand the chance of winning prizes worth a total of almost R100,000, including getaways, spa experiences, golf days, wine, restaurant meals and more. Our prizes are organised in three tiers. For once-off donations of R100 or more, three names will qualify for prizes worth R5000 each. For donations of R2000 or more, three prizes to the value of R10,000 each can be won. For donations of R5000 or more, you could stand a chance to win the grand prize, valued at R25,000: a two-night holiday for four at the Colosseum Luxury Hotel Presidential Penthouse in Cape Town, including spa treatments, cinema tickets, a cruise and perfume! There are also a number of spot prizes to be won throughout the campaign. Weekly prize draws will be held throughout December, January and the first two weeks in February, with the draw for the three big prizes taking place on 14 February 2019, the culmination of our campaign. We look forward to your support in this special drive during the season of giving.
