In August, Briefly.co.za covered a story about Tasreeq Doovey who was moved to tears after his classmates surprised him with a cell phone and matric jacket, neither of which he could afford.
He had been robbed earlier and lost his cell phone in the process. The young man is a student at Windsor High School in Lansdowne. On top of his studies, he also supports his family.
The community got together and started a crowdfunding campaign for Tasreeq. Roxanne Carter, the woman who shared the video in the Facebook group #ImStaying, had set up a crowdfunding account with a target of R55 000.
Roxanne started a backabuddy campaign for Tasreeq who is the sole breadwinner for his mom and three younger siblings, his matric studies are suffering as he has to work.
The target was absolutely smashed and the community ended up raising a whopping R110 000 for Tasreeq according to Good Things Guy.
