 2014 starts with a bang as Starting Now and our partners bring Project #GiveAChildAPen to South Africa!

The fashion fund-raiser tagged “What You Rocking? #GiveAChildAPen” is scheduled to hold on the 8th of March, 2014. It is a charity fund-raiser for education and all the proceeds from the show will go to the childcare centers, Christ Church Christian Care Centre (5Cees) and Mofumahadi wa Tsepo.

The show, organized collectively by StartingNowSA, SSM PloughBack and OH2SickPRO_Duece (a branding company) will hold at Shitanga Lounge, Miriam Makeba Street, Newtown.

StartingNowSA has worked with SSM PloughBack (an organization focused on helping orphaned and vulnerable children) successfully since 2013 on various big and small projects focused on enriching the lives of children. They are also now actively involved in getting artistes, designers, models, marketing and other necessary elements for the success of this event.

OH2SickPRO_Duece is a branding company, and they are in simple words, a one-stop-shop for events. They are doing an excellent job designing the flyers and tickets for the event, and also championing its marketing.

The show will not only help achieve our aim of raising funds to offset the educational expenses of the children, but will also provide the very young and energetic designers and musicians a platform to showcase their work and get exposure and experience.

We are really glad to add here that the owners of the venue (Shitanga Lounge) are letting us have the use of the place for FREE, thus proving us right when we say people are more eager to help than we give them credit for!
