"#ImStaying because I witnessed a random act of kindness at work today. A kindhearted gentleman by the name of Tebogo gifted 8 people gift cards worth 1 000 each who are struggling and don't have enough food during lockdown. God bless you Mr. For that I am staying."

Dinah Mothibe: "May the good Lord bless him abundantly."
Meloney Cronje: "I see all that each and everyone is doing. I don't actually comment on these actions for the simple fact that my comment gets lost between all the others. I am NOT fortunate ,I am not ungrateful, I am only another human being who has been through something very similar. I see ALL AND EVERYONE'S POSTS regarding their outreach! From the bottom of MY heart from a fellow South African who went through a similar situation many a time over during the past 12 years, I thank you guys and #ImStaying for the marvellous acts you do! It fills my heart with so much tears that I just had to pour it out here now in a time of great uncertainty for all of US. TOGETHER WE ARE UNITED THROUGH GIVING!"
Charlene van Wyk: "Tebogo you have relieved much stress in people's homes today they can all sleep well and know their family is taken care of, thank you for that."
