Organisations and Charities we support with YOUR help
For many dishes we sell we donate a small amount to some charities, here is the list.
Each week we publish a list of donations made on social media.
Bolognese pasta - Sunflower (Pavarotti) pizza
R5 goes to The Sunflower Fund charitywhich strives to increase the number of stem cell donors in South Africa. In 2013 Massimo had a bone marrow transplant to cure a rare form of blood cancer. Luckily his sister Loretta was a perfect match as a donor, but not everyone is so fortunate.
All spuntini (tapas)
for each spuntino sold R2 goes to the Kronendal Music Academy in Hout Bay
for each Luna pizza R5 - and for each frozen pizzas (all of them, even the ones sold in supermarkets, delis and online) R1 goes to DARG (Domestic Animal Rescue Organisation), a pro-life, non-profit organisation that rescues, cares for, sterilizes and rehomes previously abused, neglected and abandoned cats and dogs. DARG provides a crucial role for the communities of Imizamo Yethu, Hangberg and the greater Hout Bay area.
for each Margherita pizza (and we sell lots!) R4 goes to Border Collie Rescue - established in 1998 and now rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes many Border Collies in need. Why a breed specific shelter?
The result of keeping a border collie in a kennel or very small confined space can already be seen after a couple of days. They run round and round the kennel, bouncing against the walls and gate, barking continuously. These Collies will be permanently damaged if their confinement is continued. They also stand little to no chance of being adopted showing this "crazy" behaviour.
for each Carbonara pasta R5 goes to Hout Bay Pets - is a small non-profit that provides animal care services to the residents of the historically disadvantaged communities of Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg in Hout Bay, Cape Town. These services include a weekly clinic, advice, referrals, vaccinations and education. HB Pets also helps owners fence their yards in and otherwise improve the living conditions of their pets. HB Pets also helps animals from those communities find new homes if they need to. HB Pets' emphasis is on education and empowering pet owners, rather than pet confiscation. HBPets work closely with:
For every item sold off our doggy menu, R1 is given to the Underdog Project - a charity rehabilitating vulnerable youngsters by teaching them to work with rescued dogs, building better lives for the youngsters, while developing more adoptable dogs at DARG (see above)
Chocolate Brownie Dessert
For each chocolate brownie sold R5 will go to the Denis Goldberg foundation to help realize the House of Hope in Hout Bay
For every bottle we sell (we refill glass bottles, to save plastic) we will donate R1 to IY Ukuphila Community Cleanup a group of Volunteers who are cleaning up Imizamo Yeto (IY) and educating the community and children on taking care of their surroundings and living in a clean and healthier environment.
