The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

R25 can help the Trust buy 15 bricks; R50 for 30 bricks; and R100 for 60 bricks to help build a dedicated Childsafe Research and Educational Centre at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

On Sunday 12th May, Mother’s Day will be celebrated to honour mothers for their unconditional love and care. Yet sometimes we tend to forget that there are unfortunate circumstances where mothers sit next to their children’s hospital beds, waiting for a miracle in the form of a cure or medical treatment. While the burden of disease in Africa is rife, the statistics of trauma-related child injuries are also high.

This Mother’s Day you can do more. As a tribute to mothers who remain at the bedsides of their sick children fighting to get better, your donation, in lieu of a Mother’s Day gift, can assist us in reducing the likelihood of any parent having that experience. Donors will help us build a facility that will educate and support families about preventing injuries, by donating in increments and seeing exactly what that amount will mean in the physical world.

Groupon Grassroots and the Children’s Hospital Trust charity gift voucher will be available online nationally at from 27 April to 12 May 2013 and you can buy as many vouchers as you like. 100% of donations made through Groupon will go to the Children’s Hospital Trust.

You can also donate directly through the Children’s Hospital Trust website



  1. I bought 2 R100 vouchers through Groupon. 0010196TTF and 00100834LD. Will the hospital get the donation from groupon or where must I enter the voucher numbers on your site so that you can receive the money.

  2. Hi Vee

    Thank you so much for your support in buying a Groupon Voucher for Mother’s Day and donating to the Children’s Hospital Trust.
    There is nothing further you need to do regarding the voucher, as Groupon will donate all funds to us from the purchase they receive.

    The voucher is purely for your reference so that you can show your mom the wonderful donation you made on her behalf!

    Thank you again for your support. The little patients at the Hospital really benefit from your kind deeds.
    100% of your donation will go directly to the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.
