COVID-19 has affected millions, myself included. I have taken a 50% pay cut and am employed on a month to month basis moving forward. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful to still have a job and the skills to subsidise my income through freelance work.
I’ve been thinking about creating an online platform to sell beautifully made handcrafted items for some time now, COVID has been the push I really needed to close my eyes and dive right in.
Not only is this a way to help myself feed my family but to help fellow creatives and the locals in my area feed theirs while giving back to those most affected in my neighbouring informal settlement of Malatjies.
Everything you see in this shop is handmade by talented local folks and made available to you to purchase from the comfort and safety of your home. For every purchase made I will donate R20.00 to my local feeding scheme at the Malatjie Informal Settlement.
If there was ever a time to pull together as a community it is now.
