M&C Saatchi Abel helps #GiveChildhoodBack to Africa's youngest patients

In October 2015, the Paediatric ICU (PICU) at the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital embarked upon a R100m-plus expansion and upgrade. The building will cost R75m and ICU equipment a further R25m. Faced with a chronic shortage of paediatric Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds in Africa, the project will improve intensive care services for critically ill and injured children. The 22-bed PICU is the largest ICU for children in Africa, but simply cannot meet current demands.

The Dignity Project - a Cape Argus collaborative editorial initiative

Every day they wake up not knowing what the next hour will hold. Where the next meal will come from. Some are former professionals who have been dealt a rough hand in life. Others were born never knowing what it is to have a home. They are the homeless people of Cape Town.

Advertising things... that make life better - Grey
Advertising things... that make life better

I know you all think it'll be cool to win the Lotto, retire at 30 and spend all day playing Candy Crush on the couch. I'm not speaking from experience, but I reckon it would suck. Fun in the beginning, but eventually you'll have no compelling reason to get out of your PJ's or brush your hair in the morning. That's the life of someone who has no purpose. They just exist, they don't actually have a positive impact on themselves or their community. It's exactly the same for brands. If a company doesn't have a purpose or something to stand for, it just exists. Adds no meaning and no value to its customers.

Dr Kenneth Kaunda One of a Kind ride

After 14 days of sleepless nights, fatigue and over 400 kilometres cycling in temperatures often exceeding 30º degrees from Johannesburg, Mafikeng to Vryburg in 2015, the Ikgate Motlhala cycle campaign in partnership with the North West Department of Tourism and the North West Tourism Board returns from 24 to 29 April in honour of struggle stalwart and former President of Zambia Dr Kenneth Kaunda's 91st birthday which he's celebrating on 28 April. Now firmly established in the tourism calendar of the North West Province as the flagship "cycle for a cause" campaign, the event is set to be more exciting with top celebrity joining Stoan Seate (SABC2 Afro Café Host) in his pedalling challenge from Ventersdorp to Potchefstroom, Klerksdorp and ending in Wolmaransstad in the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality.
