- Table Mountain did its bit for society last night after it was adorned with gold lights for a good cause
- The mountain emanated a gold hue in support of childhood cancer for one hour last night
- Social media users took to various apps to share pics of the golden mountain in support of the cause
Table Mountain stood tall and bold last night while adorned with lights that reflected a golden hue off the mountain walls in support of childhood cancer. The magnificent display was kept on for one hour last night in Cape Town between 8pm and 9pm.
Western Cape Premier Alan Winde explained that he is extremely passionate about childhood cancer and that the mountain went gold up in support of fighters and survivors of childhood cancer.
He also explained that the organisers of the "bright" idea chose to light up the famous mountain in gold because the gold ribbon is used to signify international childhood cancer, making gold the perfect choice for the cause.
After heeding to Winde's call for everyone to support the cause by taking pictures of the golden mountain, many Cape Towners took to their social media pages to share stunning photos which they had captured of Table Mountain and its golden shine.
They also shared their thoughts, which you can read below.

Briefly.co.za also reported, a young woman called Adam Siya recently took to Facebook page ImStaying to share how grateful she is for her life. This after she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy after birth, a condition caused by injury to the brain, either during or after the birthing process.
"It is a special day for me because I was born with cerebral palsy. I started walking at the age of three years old. My parents took me to many doctors when I was young and one of those doctors told my parents that I would die before the age of 18," she wrote.
She then goes on to explain how despite being told she wouldn't live long, she has not only surpassed 18 but also achieved many other unbelievable things such as going to university, becoming a public speaker and writing poetry.
