In a nutshell
Some companies call it ‘corporate social responsibility'... We call it #MakingADifference and 1 of our favourite family values is ‘live with purpose'. So, to us, it's not just a bunch of words!
What we do as a business makes a difference in the lives of all our clients, every day. Not only do we save them money by providing fair and logical insurance but we give them advice that enables them to make the best decisions about their insurance needs. We also do whatever we can to deliver on our promise of award-winning royal service all the time, every time, to help make their lives a little easier and to give them something to smile about.
It's why we started our company, and it's the reason we get up in the morning!
Even the way our company is structured is aimed at #MakingADifference in some 1's life, every day, and a percentage of our profit is dedicated to changing lives for South Africans who need a hand-up rather than a hand-out... Because we're not just about making life a little better for our clients, staff and shareholders, we want to impact our country and, in time, the world.
Our business is insurance but we're in the business of making a difference. Our vision is to change the world, 1 decreasing premium at a time. We're all about #MakingADifference by doing things differently and paying it forward. We're here to leave a legacy.
Little Leo-Nardo is 4, weighs only 9kg, and has several life-threating conditions. He has severe scoliosis of the spine, which affects his movement. His lungs are visible outside his chest and face the wrong direction, so he struggles to breathe. He also has an enlarged heart and spleen.
Despite all this, Leo-Nardo’s joy and positivity are his mom Narisha’s daily inspiration and she believes that he can live a full and productive life. Her dream is to see him start grade R in a ‘normal’ school. Unfortunately, no pre-school would accept him because of his physical challenges.
Early in 2018, the Child Medi Organisation had collected R290,000 towards an operation to correct Leo-Nardo’s spine and lungs, and they approached Jacaranda’s Good Morning Angels to help raise the remaining amount that would be needed.
With The Caring Daisies, we donated R210,000… And little Leo’s operation became a reality!
The little fighter pulled through the procedure and is back home, getting stronger every day, and looking forward to his fifth birthday in April.
