Painting it Forward does not need cash donations. We only need goods such as paint, equipment and food as well as services in the form of setting up, painting and cleaning up.



Should you only be able to give a cash donation, you are welcome to donate to The Daniel & Friends Fund, who will then use that money to buy goods for the Cape Town event. Should there be more donations received than we require, the money will remain with the Daniel & Friends Fund. What they do is a very worthwhile cause.

Tygerberg Hospital School – How you can help

The Tygerberg Hospital School, situated on the Lower Ground Floor of the hospital, caters not only for all children admitted to the hospital (regardless of the length of their stay) but also forms part of the iThuba Psychiatry Unit, as well as offers two classes specialising in learners with Apraxia.

Susan Potgieter and the team at Tygerberg Hospital School are passionate about their mission…to ensure that each learner’s unique needs are assessed and accommodated, that they might achieve their full potential through both effective educational guidance and the nurturing of a healthy self-image.

With financial challenges affecting many of the learners’ families, the school relies significantly on donations and sponsorships in order to acquire items which would otherwise have been purchased from funds accumulated in a sufficiently stable school fees account.  For this reason, each and every donation and/or sponsored item is an invaluable contribution to THS and met with equal appreciation and gratitude, regardless of the cost or nature thereof.
