A new way to support us: HospiceWits partners with Natan.org.za

To ensure the continuity of our vital work of supporting and caring for patients with life-threatening illnesses, and their families, HospiceWits is totally reliant on donations and support from members of the public.

We have diverse fundraising activities throughout the year, which include the sales generated from our HospiceWits second-hand shops, situated in Kensington, Orange Grove and Parkmore. We are immensely grateful to all our loyal donors, comprising individuals, corporates, trusts, Club 2000 members, and all those who so generously support our annual events – perhaps the most well-known of these being the ever-popular Tree of Light event that will take place virtually again this year due to COVID-19.

HospiceWits is proud and happy to announce that we have partnered with another prominent organisation in order to further expand our fundraising reach.

Natan is an online shopping platform that gives customers the chance to donate between 10% and 16% of the price of their purchase to an organisation of their choice.

Stocking a wide range of products, ranging from electronics, jewellery, household items, PPE, stationery and many others, Natan aims to be the first online shopping port of call for consumers who want their purchases to be far more than just transactions.

To support HospiceWits through this partnership, simply purchase items via Natan’s online shopping portal, and then select HospiceWits as the beneficiary of your donation when checking out. This will allow you to donate between 10% and 16% of your purchase to us, and will help us to continue our care work in Johannesburg and Soweto. As the donation will be made in your name, you will also be eligible to receive a Section 18A tax certificate from us.  Thank you, Darryl Froom and Natan.org.za for this wonderful opportunity.

HospiceWits was also recently listed on the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) International’s Global Charity database, further cementing us as an organisation that can be trusted to spend your donation wisely.

This festive season, please consider purchasing your Christmas gifts and other household goodies from our charity shops and online at Natan.org.za.

Every little bit helps, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.  

Don’t miss HospiceWits’ BIG year-end sale

Our HospiceWits shops in Kensington, Orange Grove and Parkmore – aside from being a favourite amongst Joburg’s thrifters – are a critical part of the fundraising efforts for the organisation. Income from these shops, selling pre-loved items donated to HospiceWits by our supportive community, provide the funds required to ensure we are able to serve our patients and their families in Johannesburg and Soweto.

The festive season is upon us, and with it being the season of giving, you are invited to drop by and purchase items on your Christmas shopping list. If you have not visited our shops yet, the HospiceWits BIG year-end sale is sure to attract your attention!
