In case you missed it, we recently announced that PIKOKO will be paying homage to its hometown roots in Bophelong and, by extension, the Vaal with a gender neutral range of bespoke t-shirts that will be suitable for both kids and adults.
In that same breath, we also went on to highlight that the aforementioned selection of apparel, themed “Kasi Ya Vaal” will simultaneously serve as a multifaceted charity initiative – which, in turn, will not only enable us with the opportunity to give back to the communities that we serve, but also give you (our valued customer) the opportunity to make a very positive difference.
Having said that, one of the four ways through which we hope to execute these efforts effectively is by adapting what is called a “buy one give one” model.
To paint a clear picture, in lamen’s term, if you were to buy an adult t-shirt for R358 (or more) from this specific bespoke range, we will donate one t-shirt to a either a child in need, specifically at shelters/orphanages as well as Hospitals that are currently located in the Vaal Region for free.
Yes, you read that right. PIKOKO CLOTHING intends to give away a long-sleeve t-shirt for every “Kasi Ya Vaal” adult item purchased (at the abovementioned price) with the aim of helping little children in need keep warm during this cold winter season, while experiencing our customers’ boundless generosity as well the true joy of giving.
That being said, the first shelter on the list of beneficiaries of this project is a non-profit organization, and day care centre known as Bophelong Children’s Home (BCH).
As you may have already guessed from its name by now, the establishment is currently based in our hometown of Bophelong. It houses more than 50 children (from new-born to 18 years old) and primarily cares for abandoned, orphaned, HIV and special needs children.
Do remember that although you can personalize the colour of the t-shirt (choose between white, black, and grey), as well as the size (from extra small to plus size) plus a portion of the wording – specifically the name of the ‘kasi’ – there may be a few limitations regarding profanity, length, colours, and the total number of letters that can be used.
Otherwise, do keep a very close eye on the blog, as we intend to continue to highlight various ways through which you can make a great difference in the lives of many children and families in need.
