6 March 2020 – Big Hearts Foundation competition.

The Big Heart Foundation is a private non-profit organization which has made it their mission to provide assistance for any one in need of financial resources, be it for medical care, schooling or charity support.

In order to raise the necessary funds to be able to assist those who approach them, they are hosting a competition where one lucky person could win a Nissan NP200 bakkie. This competition has been ongoing for more than a year now and some participants are starting to wonder if the bakkie is ever going to be won.

After conversing with Neil Francis of the Big Hearts Foundation, he explained that in order to give away the Nissan, they need to raise about another R50 000, to be able to profit from the competition and assist those who depend on them. We urge the community of Mkhondo to please support this competition.

To become eligible for the Nissan NP200, simply SMS your name, surname and Nissan NP200 to 45902. The SMS will cost only R1- 50. The advertisement appears regularly in the Excelsior News too. You can also visit their new website, www.bighearts.co.za to enter the competition (R1-50 per entry). The website also provides more information about the competition and the Big Hearts Foundation.
