Take a look at the charities set to benefit from the Deal or No Deal SA celebrity edition
The celebrities will set into the hot seat to try and win money for the charities closest to their hearts. Just like all the other episodes, they face 20 boxes, each containing an amount of money, ranging from R1 to R250 000. The celeb must choose one box set apart from the rest before eliminating the boxes one by one, hoping the big amounts remain in play.
Media personality Zoë Brown wants to donate whatever money she wins to Heartlands Baby Sanctuary in Somerset West. Heartlands provides residential care to abandoned, abused, neglected and ill babies from birth to six years of age.
Briefly News spoke to Nikki Bower from Heartlands Baby Sanctuary and she said they are grateful that Zoë chose them.
"We are still reeling at the fact that Zoe nominated us. We invited her here in 2022 for a tour, and she fell completely in love with the amazing work that we do here. She has been a great supporter since then!"
Popular chef, actress and media personality Lebogang Tlokana’s charity is Rhema Children's Village in Johannesburg, an organisation committed to offering a safe environment for abused, abandoned, and destitute children.
Shaka iLembe star Wiseman Mncube’s winnings will benefit Ubuhle Bemfundo Creche in Soweto.
Singer Holly Rey chose Diabetes South Africa. The star lives with type 1 diabetes and wants to raise awareness and support for others with the condition.
Katlego Maboe chats about the upcoming Deal or No Deal SA celebrity edition
Katlego Maboe is thrilled to have some of his colleagues on the show. Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, the star said he can't wait for Mzansi to enjoy the shows. He said:
"It was an immensely thrilling experience to have the celebrities there, not just because of course they are some of the most well-known faces in our country but they were going head-to-head against the banker to win money for their favourite charities.
"Because they were doing it for charity, you get the sense that they might have been willing to risk a little bit more to win more money whereas obviously with contestants there's a little bit of apprehension towards risk.
"It was very exciting I love what they brought to the table. Each of their charities is commendable in the work that they do. I think that everyone is gonna enjoy these episodes, seeing how some of the people that we know as the most coolest, calmest, collected characters we see on our TV screens and hear on our radios do when they're sitting in the hot seat like all of our contestants do every night."
Katlego Maboe gets candid about the emotional rollercoaster of hosting Deal or No Deal: “It’s intense”
