While South Africa seems to be consumed by negative news and crime on a daily basis there is still hope for a better future for everyone. With every unselfish act of kindness, South Africans draw nearer to a future where skin colour is irrelevant and humanity prevails.
One such kind act by a local man in Johannesburg recently restored South Africans' faith in humanity.
Dylan Hall shared his story on social media and it seems to be just the kind of medicine South Africa needs.
Dylan noticed a local artist asking for help and by pulling over and reaching out to the artist, he set in motion events that would inspire those who hear about it.
Here's Dylan's story, as shared by GoodThingsGuy :
He was driving in Rivonia when he saw local sculpture artist Success holding a sign that read: I am an artist looking for capital.
At first, Dylan thought nothing of it, but when he passed the artist again, he had the feeling there was something different about the artist's request.
Dylan gave Success his name and asked him to call him, wanting to know more. He learned that Success had a partner, Sespa (Romeo), who lived with him at the Jukskei River and they needed material to make their art.
Dylan decided to see how he could help and organised to meet the two at the local Builder's Warehouse. Financially, Dylan was only able to help with some basic materials but he thought of helping expose them and their work.
Over weekends Dylan developed a website for Success and Sespa and their sculptures. They wanted to be known as S.S Sculptures and so it was to be. Dylan also made an online social media space for them.
Now Dylan hopes to find the two artists a real venue to display their art. For this, he turned to social media, asking for help from other South Africans.
People responded very positively and look forward to owning sculptures by Success and Sespa.
Jackie Hunter - Well Done Dylan. Best wishes for these guys
