West Rand TBDZA Details

22 May

First off, I want to say a quick thanks to @MelanieMinnaar for giving me the butt-kick that I needed, and for saving the West Rand event.

To all my friends in the Wild West, come and drop your blankets off here:

  • Date: 26 May 2012
  • Time: 6pm to 9pm
  • Venue: Rhythm Café, Heritage Square, Cnr Cecil Knight and Viljoen Street, Krugersdorp North.

We’ll be sharing the rooftop with the Rhythm Within Us dance school, so bring a blanket, have a drink at the bar and see some spectacular dancing. It’s for a good cause!

 

#TBDZA

12 May

If you live in South Africa and spend a bit of time on Twitter; you’ve probably heard about the Twitter Blanket Drive.

It’s easy to forget, when we’re sipping on a big cup of hot chocolate in front of our big gas heaters, that a large portion of the South African population barely have the luxury of snuggling into a warm blanket.

It was with this very thought that, @MelanieMinnaar started the Twitter Blanket Drive, just over 2 years ago.

The aim is to collect as many blankets as possible, using social media to rally support.  The main event will be held as a national tweet-up on 26 May 2012, with supporters getting together at 6pm at venues all across South Africa (and even over the border in Zimbabwe).

This year, I am proud to be hosting the #TBDZA West Rand event, with my good friend and awesome rockstar @PappaG100 as co-host.  He and his band, Die Kat se Snor will be treating us to a free performance on the day, so bring your blankets and watch this awesome band live!

We hope to see you there!
