In my personal opinion the biggest challenge to growing a place based and sustainable economy is to shift the consumer mindset and change spending patterns to support small and micro businesses. The benefit of this is possibly one of the most important and least understood aspects. I would love to do an experiment to track money in circulation. Spend a number of bank notes in different places and see what they buy. For example the money spent at a market stall or vendor may buy taxi fare, school books, medicine, food, etc and still make its way to a big retailer to buy a blanket or whatever. Nobody loses but wealth is created many times on the journey. The arguments against shopping like this are convenience (really – upliftment is MUCH more convenient in the long run) and the ability to swipe a card. I urge people to consider making the effort, often items are much better quality and value too and if you work at it it will in the end reduce crime, insurance premiums, security costs and the tax burden to the state and therefore to all of us. The butterfly effect is real. How amazing is it to think you can #bethechange just by shopping! This is the kind of message I need to spread, as far and fast as possible.
Johnny Clegg said it best, it is a cruel, crazy beautiful world and at 52% youth unemployment, nowhere more so than here. This is our world so best we live in it, best we can.
I have raised R18K of the R21K I need to make it rock. The last R3K is to transport and feed the outreach kids, if I don’t get it I’ll be making peanut butter sarnies which is okay, but I’d rather give them something to spend so it all keeps going around. What is amazing is our taxi drivers are only charging fuel, R1200 for 2 taxis from Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain and R850 Masi / Ocean View…2 trips each. I have no relationship with these guys, they are just entrepreneurs and get it.
I am a legit NPO and can provide Section 18A certificates, all money is 100% into the project, no admin or wages are paid. We are now indorsed by SAIRR as well as Rotary, Clem Sunter and so on. Its by no means perfect, but it beats sitting on the couch moaning.
Next event is Longbeach Mall on Sat 30 June, get your bookings in.
Thanks to all of you for your support and well done to all the amazing youngsters already!
