GIVE IT BAG

WHAT COMES AROUND GOES AROUND

When a GIVE IT BAG becomes your very own, you should think about the good you can do. It could be a small favour, or positive thinking and acting, or simply supporting a meaningful organisation - it’s all good. Your good deed - or deeds, even better - can be posted under your unique bag number and shared with the world. Inspire and be inspired. Even if it’s just to express a wish. If need be, our MOTIVATION page contains loads of suggestions. Submit your idea under NEW ENTRY to the right and let us know.

I have been inspired by the commitment of the Give It Bag concept to recycle and put back into our community.

So at the end of 2008 I signed on with an amazing company in Cape Town called 'Abundance Recycling'. They make special collections, for a nominal fee, in various suburbs for recyclable waste.

Then at Christmas I gave my boyfriend a worm farm so we are now able to recycle our organic waste as well!

It is a small step, but if everyone took this small step it would have a huge impact on our environment and the future of our planet!

Every Christmas my Niece and I go shopping for baby clothes & accessories for 2 boys & 2 girls, we then deliver this to the Nazareth House Home for babies with HIV. It's our small may of making a child's life more bearable during this season where love and family are so important.

I also regularly give the person in front of me at the check out counter in the local Pick 'n Pay whatever short change they may need to complete their purchase. R2 to me is small change, but to them it may mean the difference between a meal on the table that night or an empty belly.

I worked hard to get the money for my bag. I walked almost 2 miles to the pawnshop from the old age home with a TV, just to get money for my own GIVE-IT-BAG. I really like this idea.

Some days ago I did shopping at pick 'n pay. At the cashpoint I waited behind an old black lady. I could see that her fingers were deformed by arthritis - she could barely put her shopping on the counter. Then I saw that she left some of her shopping in the trolley, not even luxurious stuff - salt, bred etc.
When I asked her why she did not put everything on the counter, she said she does not have enough money. I asked her to put all of the stuff on the counter and I paid for it. Those situations happen quite often. For me it is natural to help out. But I thought it might be a good idea to post the good deed on your web site to encourage others to be more aware of their social environment.

As my daughter is currently living overseas i cared for the communication with her godchild in srilanka. After hesitating initially I found myself buying gifts and writing supportive letters. I realized how good it feels to give back. Thank you GIVE IT BAG!
