Wow, we have had a busy year. From March to November, we have paid our knitters over R150 000 and donated over 3 000 bears to various organisations in need. In November alone, our knitters have been working incredibly hard as we have had requests for over 800 bears in the lead up to Christmas.
We have also had an exciting new project producing bears made to order as the official gift for the 2019 Matric Leavers of St Anne's Diocesan College. We are thrilled to have been given this opportunity by the St Anne's Old Girls Guild!
More great news is The Care Bear Project has been sponsored as an official member of the Midlands Meander, and for the first time, our bears are now available at the shop at the Mandela Capture Site in Howick.
We could not achieve any of this without our sponsors, and in this regard we would like to thank all our donors, and very specifically the following companies and individuals who make regular monthly donations, without whom our project would not be possible:-
N3TC Changing Lives Campaign
Hard Asset Trust
Ndaka Safari Lodge
Umhlanga Holiday Rentals
Moore Roadlife (Litres for Education Program)
Monique and Phil Bowmaker
Brigid and Nils Lutz
Sharon and John McNair
Michael and Camilla Porter
Bev Sinclair and Bronwyn Gordon
Rian van der Merwe and his amazing family

Asked about her hopes and aspirations, Andiswa said: “I aim to achieve exposure in a way that benefits me, as well as our School Restaurant - and to mature in my career. The responsibilities I have been given will help me in my endeavour to develop within the culinary industry and, one day, I hope to look back, with pride, at the people I have impacted.” Andiswa is aware of the testing time ahead.
“Challenges in a kitchen become a way of life,” she says, adding that she deals with them by telling herself that challenges come, and they go. “They are a part of life,” is her philosophical approach. Having been a student and an employee at the school, Andiswa is familiar with the ethics here.
As a teenager she waitressed, and was employed as chef de partie at Hartford House, so she is confident she will fill the position effectively.
Born in the Eastern Cape and raised primarily in KwaZulu-Natal, Andiswa has dreams of being a successful businesswoman.

I'm writing this email to you with a heavy heart and unable to hold back tears. Today's storm and heavy rain has destroyed our cabin which is used by the Grade 2.
As I write I'm standing in the ruins not knowing what to do or where to turn. I'm devastated, worried, confused and anxious as I don't know where I will put my children tomorrow.
I'm writing to you for help, I have nowhere to turn. Not only that I have to take some of the kids with me home as their shacks have been destroyed. If you can help,please,please help me.

As part of our #CommitToAct #SaveLives-SpeakUp and #SaveKidsLives campaign SADD have been funded by Community Chest and N3TC to make learners safer on the roads.
The first step was engaging with principals, assessing the roads, painting pedestrian crossings and School ahead and 40km speed limit signs were hung up around the schools. In 2020 we will work with the educators and learners, and start road safety clubs at the schools.
Thanks to donations from Clicks, N3TC, Howick Pharmacy, Kubela Store, Trucksurance and The Fabric Gallery we were able to make a small difference in the lives of 27 Road Crash Victims at Greys, Edendale and Northdale Hospitals.
Many of the victims have either no or very infrequent visitors, either have been or will be hospitalized for extended periods of time and this then made the SADD teams visit, support and the gift bag so special to them.
The majority of the victims we visited had been pedestrians walking on the verge, or drivers and passengers abiding by the road rules. Most of the crashes had been caused by other reckless and intoxicated drivers. Road conditions, e.g. gravel roads, wet roads, potholes, no pavements or lighting were other leading reasons for the crashes.
SADD would therefore like to promote the erecting of guard rails in high traffic areas and in public transport drop-off collection points. There is an ongoing need for Road Safety Awareness campaigns to be run by the Department of Transport and by other road safety specialists like SADD.
Again, we found that many passengers were not buckled up. It was difficult to correctly quantify the number of intoxicated drivers, as many victims became unconscious and did not remember specific details.
SADD were also able to hand out training manuals to doctors at the 3 Hospitals as part of our preventative and educative work.
We hope by sharing the road crash victim stories with the public we will highlight the financial and emotional devastation that crashes cause to victims and their families and how it places an unnecessary and enormous burdens on our health system.

Since investments in ECD have massive long-term impact, these off-road cyclists with a passion for adventure were invited to push their limits to unlock the potential in thousands of lives by raising money for improving ECD in Sweetwaters with iThemba Projects by completing an everlasting challenge.
Even though he was still recovering from chicken pox, Rich, the event organizer, still participated and completed 27 hours of continuous riding, completing the 8848 vertical meters. Most of the other riders completed the height in about 20 hours, with the youngest cyclist Willie van Eck, completing in a world-class 16 hours. One rider, Ann Blewett, completed a 34 hour ride, doing over 10 500 vertical meters, setting a new ladies record. Of the 8 riders who started, 7 completed the challenge. The course was on the Hilton College Estate. Because of the extreme nature of the event, Hilton College boys did not participate, but were challenged to contribute to iThemba through a 5 mile fun run later in the term, raising 30 thousand Rand for the cause.
“A lot of people we spoke to about this event said “Oh that’s impossible, you can’t do that,” says Rich about the event. “Yet what I’ve learned is that yes, something is hard, but it’s not impossible. The limits we put on ourselves are not real. The human body is an amazing thing. It’s just a matter of mindset and saying, “I will do this and no one can stop me.”
Rich is already dreaming up his next extreme cycling event - hoping for an Everesting world record in December, or an extreme endurance ride in the new year. “I hope along with the extreme cycling events, we can also have some awareness raised about a bigger issue,” says Rich. If kids can get the foundation they need in life, the possibility of impact on their world is limitless.

On average, our UP.Ed users have progressed 2.5 grades over the past 10 months. This means that if a learner started a section on a grade 8, they have worked through grade 8, grade 9 and are now busy with grade 10.
We are giving free demonstrations of the UP.Ed app to local schools. If you believe that a school could benefit from the app, kindly encourage them to contact us.
