COVID-19: Why we are panicking!
The constraints of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) has lead to all of our events being cancelled and we are unable to fundraise at a physical location. This has a major impact on our organisation. Now more than ever, we really need your help!
Here are safe and easy ways that you can still help us achieve our goals and continue to change the lives of people living with disabilities:
1. Signup for a monthly debit order
Debit orders help us in a big way- knowing that we have a set amount of guaranteed income coming in each month allows us to plan for expenses. https://guidedog.org.za/donate/
We appreciate any donation made. You can make a donation by clicking on the link below https://guidedog.org.za/donate/
3. Buy Raffle Tickets
