We invite you to build a better life for others by adding A Brick in the Wall.
The Gauteng HOMEMAKERS Expo has given their wholehearted support to the Meals on Wheels Make-over Initiative. Meals on Wheels is a not-for-profit organisation that not only serves more than 13.4 million meals per year but, also gets businesses and individuals to voluntarily help renovate the properties of needy individuals and organizations. This year, together with you, our visitors, we will be building a mural at the expo with the aim of donating R200 000 to the Moffatview Community Orphanage - an initiative supported by Meals on Wheels.
There are 350 children in Moffatview and Meals on Wheels presently feeds 130 of the most needy three times a week. The dream is to have the capacity to feed all the children and to build them a safe haven where they can learn, play and be safe.
Please participate in this amazing initiative. Buy your sticker ?brick' for R20 from the Meals on Wheels stand C40 (Main Arena) and paste it on the Orphanage wall.
A Brick in the Wall stand is sponsored by Oasys Innovations.

HOMEMAKERS's press office

HOMEMAKERS has for the past two decades developed a unique bouquet of media opportunities enabling advertisers and exhibitors to communicate to discerning homeowners in the major urban areas of South Africa.

It is always better to attend an expo such as this one in comparison to visiting individual stores separately. Having almost everything under one roof makes it so much easier for you to compare prices for all the various things you need for your home solutions. It really helps to save a lot of time and hassle and it is bound to attract many homeowners, be it new or current ones.
