2nd Take - The charities in South Africa we support

At 2nd Take we are passionate about how to be environmentally friendly, and take our social responsibility seriously. We are not a charity shop, but we believe that every business, big or small can add value, not only through its green products or services, but also in social uplifting programs, as well as charities, and by taking care of the environment. Both, businesses and individuals, have a responsibility towards the world we live in, and we at 2nd Take try our best to give back where we believe we can make a positive impact. Find out about the various charities we support in South Africa.

2nd Take and The Street Store

2nd Take participated in a great social initiative called The Street Store. A first of its kind in the world.

The Street store, also known as the pop up shop for the homeless, is a street side store that you could donate your clothes to, and homeless people could come choose 3 items of clothing at no expense. It is a concept that is aimed at bridging the social gap between the haves and have not’s.
If you missed out on being able to donate, don’t fear, you could wait for a street store in your area or even host your own street store, just check out there website for all the details.

2nd Take and the Desmond Tutu TB Centre:

2nd Take is currently working with The Desmond Tutu TB Centre and the Brooklyn Chest Hospital on a fantastic initiatives.

The centre is organizing a day filled with fun activities for the children at Brooklyn Chest, suffering from TB. As part of this event, they are asking for donations of suitable clothing, non-perishable foodstuff and toys, to be given to the kids (aged 6 months to 13 years) on the day.

2nd Take is not a charity shop, but we were more than keen to get on board; we’ve offered our premises in Sea Point as a drop off zone for any donations that you may want to contribute.

For more info on the centre please visit the Desmond Tutu TB Centre webpage.

One of the many ways in which we do this at 2nd Take, is to support local charities on an ongoing basis. We donate our unwanted new or second hand clothing items, to mainly three of the well established and reputable local charity organisations in Cape Town.

You are welcome to drop off your unwanted 2nd hand clothing with us and we will donate it to one of our charity organisations on behalf of you.

 2nd Take and the Big Issue.

2nd Take was thrilled to work on a great project with the Big Issue.

The Big Issue believes in helping vendors and their families with a training and development programme, where they can manage their own money and are given the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to move up into the formal job market. By developing a vendor sales process, The Big Issue creates jobs for the unemployed and homeless.

2nd Take was very excited to get on board, as we donated a heap of fantastic designer clothes to the Big Issue. We were delighted to hear the positive responses from the vendors, as they tried on the clothes  and gave us a mini fashion show.

Check out the Mini Fashion show here.

2nd Take and the TCD Trust

2nd Take was excited to partner with the TCD Trust to help a community involved project. The Tourism Community Development Trust is a registered non-profit organization. Their mission is to make a difference in South Africa’s communities by consolidating the fundraising and social investment efforts of companies within the South African Tourism Industry.

We were delighted to hear that our donation of clothing was distributed to the woman and teachers at RGG creche in Phillipi. The TCD informed us that there was a great sense of festivity at the creche on a rather cold and bleak morning. The women and children are so grateful for the clothes, as they can now keep warm this winter. Not only Charity Shops can contribute, anyone is welcome.

We are proud to support the TCD Trust and the woman and children of the RGG creche. We hope the progress of the creche goes from strength to strength with continued support. Check out the RGG creche pictures here.
