Home from Home Trust
Home from Home (HFH) provides supported and supervised community-based foster care for orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children through a network of small, family homes in disadvantaged communities in South Africa. We believe that living in a small family unit with a dedicated foster mother or parents and no more than six children, is the next best place for children who can’t be cared for by their own biological families. Our children grow up in their home communities and culture, where their home language is spoken. They have a foster family to support and care for them and we hope that one day they will either be reunited with their biological families, or failing that, that we have provided them with the necessary grounding to lead happy, successful lives.
South Africa - R200.00 per entry
African Continent - R250.00 per entry
International - R650.00 per entry
To become part of the Home From Home Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Team, each team member will need to cover the Two Oceans Marathon entry fee, which includes a Home From Home running shirt. Home From Home does not add on any additional fees as this is regarded as a wonderful opportunity for runners to raise funds through family and friends and local businesses.
Runners are encouraged to open a GivenGain or Just Giving Fundraising Page for friends and family to securely donate. These online portals allow donors to donate to your cause using their credit card. It is completely safe and easy to use. To use Just Giving all you need to do is visit our Home From Home Cause Page and join the team. You will automatically be directed to set up your personal fund raising page.
Fund matching is another opportunity for those who have employers who would be willing to donate to a worthy cause. Fund matching is a scenario whereby the employer agrees to double the funds you raise, ensuring that the receiving charity receives even more donations while the employer also fulfils their Corporate Social Responsibility. Please be sure to ask your organisation if they have a fund matching program for their employees.
Home From Home will be organising a few social activities around the Two Oceans Marathon where runners will get to know team members and the Home from Home team. You will also be able to tour our homes so that you can meet the children you are running for.
