There are many ways in which you can help us.
Everything we do is made possible through your help.

As famously quoted by Mother Theresa: “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”.

Leave a gift in your will

A legacy in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways that you can support Breadline Africa’s efforts to develop phenomenal children who grow up to make a positive contribution to society. Making a will ensures that everything you have worked hard for is passed on to those you love and to the causes you care about. If you don’t have a will, your estate is distributed according to the State which may not be in line with your wishes. In South Africa, a gift in your will to Breadline Africa is exempt from estate duty. In the UK, if you have not nominated an heir or have any immediate family, then your estate goes to the Crown. More than 30M people in the UK (60%) have no will.

Send an eCard

Sending someone an eCard is easy, fun and free. An option to donate is included and makes a wonderful and meaningful gift for that ‘person who has everything’.
