In this episode, we have a very special guest: Neve Swart, an 8 years old girl who, despite her young age, is already raising money for children in Africa.
Neve is from South Africa and has been living in Luxembourg since January 2021.
Recently, she realised that she had a skill and a passion for doing nails and other beauty treatments and started treating her much delighted mother. Others started noticing her mom's nails, and were extremely surprised when they were told that Neve did them. Soon the ‘’bookings’’ started flying in. However, when her ‘’clients’’ started to give her money she did not feel comfortable receiving the money for herself. She thought about this for a while, and approached her mother - saying ‘’Mom I love doing nails for others, however I think there are others that need the money more than me’’, she then asked if she could start a fund and raise money for children back in South Africa.
Growing up in South Africa she was exposed to many families and children who are in need of a home, food, clothing, love and care. While living in South Africa she would donate her clothes, toys and make sandwiches for others - she thus felt she needed to do more for the children back home now that she is living away from home.
And that's how her adventure started.
Today she has already made a donation to the ’Eastern Province Child and Youth Care centre’ and she is planning to reach an even more ambitious goal: raising Eur 500 for a new donation to the centre.
Help Neve reach her goal either by contacting email@example.com to book a manicure if you are in Luxembourg (we will put you in contact with her parents) or by donating directly at her fundraising page: https://urlzs.com/uV9qh
