Nothing is better than watching celebs taking a break from the glamorous lives they lead to make the world a better place. Briefly.co.za takes a look at four of the most charitable local celebs
It seems that South Africa is blessed with an abundance of celebrities who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and do their part to rake in funds for charity.
Here are just four examples of the country’s humbling stars who do their part for their country:
2018 saw the talk show host taking on a huge challenge - building toilets for school-going children.
Teaming up with Domestos, a cleaning product manufacturer, they took on the project to bring safer ablution facilities for the needy.
The project aims to restore or build toilets in two schools in 2019. Mdoda aims to add another school to the project and needs R1.1 million to do it.
Her relentless efforts have been paying off and social media campaigning has raised over R130 000 towards the project so far.
Anele also rose to the occasion when a fire broke out in Alexandra, helping to provide relief to the families who had lost everything in the fire that destroyed around 600 homes.
Mdoda rallied people to come together and encouraged big brands to join in and they heeded her call with KFC pledging to feed displaced families over the next 3 months.
Mdoda has been noticeably encouraging big brands to act and they are stepping up.
Comedian and American talk show host has hustled to raise R4 million to help fund higher education for hopeful matriculants.
Noah has also committed to matching any donations made up to R2 million. Thus far, the fund stands at just over R210 000.
The comedian and radio host known as Skhumba has passionately been campaigning to relieve the shortage of wheelchairs in South Africa.
Hlophe did his bit in changing lives, inviting comedians to perform a hilarious stand-up comedy bonanza to raise funds.
Skhumba is also bringing a joyous Christmas to 21 families by giving away groceries. Roping in co-host Ndumiso Ngcobo, Kaya FM and big retailers, he made sure the festive season will see those in need taken care of.
Enjoying the 10th anniversary of his One Man Show for Charity, Ashley Raphala celebrated the success his charity campaign has enjoyed.
He revealed that he was elated to have come this far, as a lot of events just fade away over time.
Proceeds from his show to towards funding school uniforms to children in dire need of them.
When the idea was originally conceived, DJ Shimza had wanted to attract SA’s best artists to pull huge crowds, sadly he has been the only one so far which gave the show its name.
