“Ride a mile in my wheels”
– are you up to the challenge?

During March – Intellectual Disability Awareness Month – we challenge all CEOs and Company Directors to spend one work day in a wheelchair to help spread awareness and raise funds for our special ‘angels’, many of whom are reliant on specially adapted wheelchairs for mobility.



Discover first hand what life is like for people with disabilities – we guarantee that this unique experience will change your perception forever. Plus you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re doing something meaningful to help children and adults with profound intellectual disability.


Many of them are unable to propel their wheelchairs and need someone to push them. As well as someone to bath and dress them, feed them and brush their hair. Our dedicated carers do all this, while our therapists provide speech, occupational, physio and music therapy to enable these special angels to make the most of life.


As you can imagine, this level of care is costly. And the majority of our residents have been abandoned or come from indigent families. Which means there’s no one to contribute financially to their care. We care for them anyway. Not just because it’ the right thing to do, but because it’s the only thing to do.


But it does mean that raising funds is crucial. And your participation in our Annual LITTLE EDEN CEO Wheelchair Campaign® is a huge help. So please will you consider booking your place now, by contacting Nadine Mason on 011 609 7246 or email nm@littleeden.org.za


You’ll need to support the campaign with a donation of R55 000 (R35 000 for SME) to LITTLE EDEN Society. Then choose any work-day in March to spend in a wheelchair (which we provide), and share your experience on social media (or provide a write up, pictures or a video for our website) to help create awareness of the daily challenges faced by people with disabilities.


If your company is a South African tax payer, you’ll be issued with a Section 18A Certificate to claim back from SARS. You’ll also earn points on the B-BBEE scorecard.


But the most important gain is the feeling of satisfaction you get, knowing that you’re helping the most vulnerable members of society – people with profound intellectual disability.


So, if you can’t accept the challenge in your current work environment, please consider making a donation of any amount towards the care of our special ‘angels’. Thank you.
