Three fine young men bring happiness to Randfontein kids

Three boys from Tuxedo Park, New York, in the USA, have a made brightened the lives of less fortunate kids in Randfontein.

 Brothers Caio and Luca Rodolfo and their friend, Theo Coughlin, decided to sell their childhood books and donate the proceeds so they could be used to buy books for children at the Toekomsrus Drop-in Centre.
 They teamed up with Sara Cassis, owner of Ruffikins Muffins and shared a stall at a recent Tuxedo Park Farmers' market. Sara, generously agreed to donate 15% of her profits on that day to the "Books for Kids" programme.


 The day proved to be a rip-roaring success and $500 (approximately R5 000) was raised. Books were bought and are being enjoyed by the kids at the Toekomsrus Drop-in Centre.
 "We are deeply moved and grateful for the efforts of these fine young men. They will enrich the lives of many," says Carryou Ministry General Manager, Rev. Lawrence Mbaso.
