FILOTIMO KIDS CELEBRATES CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
We were so blessed to meet Bonni and Nadia from RAINBOWS & SMILES this morning. A very touching morning sharing our journeys and working together, to make moments matter!!
Thank you for being part of the spirit of Filotimo and we look forward to many more special moments together🙌🏻 As part of our FILOTIMO CARES FOR KIDS programme, we delivered toys sponsored by MATTEL for the children.
Rainbows and Smiles is a community-based, charitable foundation dedicated to providing emotional, social and financial support to children diagnosed with cancer or a life-threatening illness, and their families and caregivers. The organisation is inspired by the life of Jed Brady Suckling, son of Bonita Suckling, the founder. Jed bravely battled a brain cancer called Anaplastic Astrocytoma for more than three years. He was a little boy who loved giving gifts, and one of his greatest joys was to make his friends smile while they were in hospital being treated. Rainbows and Smiles was inspired by Jed’s love language of giving gifts, and was established in 2009. Over the years the organisation has grown, but their inspiration is never forgotten and they remain an approachable and welcoming charity.
Thank you to our Brand Ambassadors Nicole Fuller and Martin Scheepers for assisting us in the toy drop. A huge thank you to BMW BRYANSTON, our official car sponsor for always getting us to our destination.
“Doing what we do in the spirit of Filotimo.”
