Hello mom's I am from south africa and am looking for moms all over the world to help me start a collection service for men and women living on a government pention.
In south africa they only get R1200 and you cant even pay for a place to live let alone take care of your self as well. It is also really sad cause these are the people that raised us, sacrificed everything and now have nothing. I am looking for moms who coupon to try coupon enough goods to fill a container. Please let me know your feeling about this!

I just thought about the whole thing.I dont know how it would work..Where would you fill the container,where would people from all over the world be able to bring the goods etc. Its not an easy plan. Not that i dont like the idea but i honostly dont know if it will work. Whats your ideas?How will you let people know that its going to be used by people who really need it?These are just thoughts that past through my mind. You might want to start something up in SA..i know it is difficult but there are people around that would donate something even if its just a warm blanket or some rice,pasta or milk.

Hi Coralie
I am also south african but i am not living there anymore.My Dad is down there at the moment and we try to go atleast once a year on holiday to visit family.Its just crazy how the prices of everything has gone up,i dont know how people can survive. I mean when we went to get grocery at pick n pay i was shocked,to feed a family of five and we really just bought pick n pay no name brand of pasta and some meat and veggies and a couple of other stuff we payed over 600rand.I was shocked because we went shopping at pick n pay and checkers not even woolworths and the price of a loaf of bread compared to ten years ago..i mean the basic stuff like milk,rice etc. 1200rand is just not enough at all. I think your idea is great.I would love to help the elderly..how can i help?
Kind regards
G
