HELP CHOC to assist children with cancer and their families by supporting International Childhood Cancer Day on Monday, 15 February.
With the theme ‘have a heart for children with cancer’, CHOC has issued a challenge to the public.
The non-profit organisation would like to fill every school playground and office building with hearts.
They suggest: Allocate a tree in your grounds and allow your students/ staff to be creative and have fun. Allow your students and staff to design and make a heart that can be hung in the tree. For R5, R10 or R20, students and staff can wear civvies on Monday, 15 February and hang their heart in the tree, remembering all children who have cancer.
Take photos of your heart trees and send these to CHOC or the media, place on your social media pages and use them in the school year book and newsletters.
Allow your students or staff to form a large heart on the playground, hold a minute’s silence for children suffering from cancer and take an aerial photo of the spectacle for distribution in the media and social media.
