Help sponsor a gift to those in need!
Who we are and what we do
The Tree of Joy is an initiative that aims to provide a Christmas gift to those in Port Elizabeth who otherwise would not receive one.
The project started 30 years ago in Cape Town and moved to the Eastern Cape about 15 years ago. The project is run by 3 Rotary Clubs in Port Elizabeth who in turn liaise with approximately 60 charities to assist with finding almost 2200 gifts for those who are either destitute, handicapped or in places of safety.
The Tree itself is stationed at Greenacres Shopping Centre in Port Elizabeth, and will run from the 19th November to the 18th December 2020.
Members of the public can help by sponsoring the gift on any card/cards, they can either do this by purchasing and wrapping the gift themselves and returning it to the Tree or making a pledge online to purchase one or more of the 2200 gifts that will need to be found for those in need or making a simple donation.
