Pass on over­seas air­lines gift bags good­ies


AF­TER com­ing home from an ex­tended trip, my lug­gage was full of the gifts some over­seas air­lines still gen­er­ously give out.

Th­ese gift bags con­tain wet wipes, eye masks, lip balm, and ear­phones to lis­ten to mu­sic or movies dur­ing in­ter­minable flights.

I counted seven pairs of ear­phones in my lug­gage. As I have my own pair of head­phones I had been want­ing for ages, bought on my last trip, I thought of pass­ing the oth­ers on.

It got me think­ing, if I have seven pairs of th­ese, surely there must be thou­sands of th­ese ly­ing around in homes across Cape Town?

If you would like to do­nate ear­phones, please drop them off with our com­plex’s se­cu­rity guards day or night in the box marked with my name.

They will then be handed over to ward coun­cil­lors with whom I am in con­tact for ar­eas such as Langa and Ma­nen­berg, to give to young­sters.

Please What­sApp me on 078 203 7510 or e-mail me at ellen76­ for di­rec­tions.
