Help feed freelance performers.

Help feed freelance performers.

The show cannot always go on… Somewhere.

My name is Owen Lonzar, I have been a choreographer in South Africa for the past 30 years and I have had the honor of working with many incredible artists who have heart and have dedicated their lives to entertaining audiences at corporate and commercial events. 

They have given so much of themselves and now need your help to survive. No events or performances are allowed meaning they are all unemployed and struggling even to feed themselves.

I am looking to send each person in need a grocery voucher to shop for essentials to keep them and their families going for a couple of weeks at least. I am aiming for R500 per person. All funds will be managed by me and tracked for recording keeping purposes.

South Africa doesn’t have anything in place to offer financial aid or relief for freelance performers

You are their hope right now so please donate what you can, every little bit helps.

*As per the campaign creator’s request, funds raised will be paid directly to One Small Act of Kindness*
