Calling all Angels!

The Travelstart Angels gathered in the boardroom to have their first official meeting and in true Angel’s style, the meeting commenced with a round of giggles, excitement and laughter.

It quickly became apparent that our first planning meeting was turning into one serious brain storming session, with Charlene, Diana and I gaspi.jpgng out ideas, each one leading on to something more grand and exciting! Thirty minutes & four pages of furious scribblings later, a plan of sorts started to emerge.

Even though the three of us are the driving force behind this initiative, our aim is to ensure that it belongs to all Travelstarters.  Through this whole process, it became apparent that other Travelstarters were already involved with various charity drives that are close to their hearts.  So we want to see our platform as being a springboard for all Travelstarters to promote their charities – to this end we will be implementing the Charity of the Month drive.

Our first Charity of the Month will be Nanette McDonald’s Tygerberg Cancer Ward – calling on all Travelstarters to do their yearly magazine spring-cleaning and bring all their old magazines to help us put a smile on someone’s face during their difficult time.

More on the Tygerberg Cancer Ward to come!

Angels out.
