Sharing My Clients Beautiful Initiative – Helping Others Pay It Forward: Purple Rain Game Breeders Supporting Community Social Upliftment!

jojobayvel 2

You may find it strange as an animal activist and lover, that I have a client in this ‘controversial’ industry. However I only took on this project as the owners and managers are not Hunters and believe in conservation a little more than I do even!

The majority of proceeds which are not used to look after the game in the breeding project, go towards the conservation of the surrounding farm ,feeding of animals especially after droughts and ant-poaching activities.

These animals are also treated by the top vets and no cost is spared in ensuring their health and well being.

So for the main post reason ūüôā

Introducing the Madikwe Mambas Running Club!PURPLE RAIN GAME BREEDING DISEASE MADIKWE MAMBAS RUNNING CLUB

The Madikwe Mambas consists of members of the local community who are all employed within the Madikwe Conservancy.

As part of our ethos at Purple Rain, we strongly believe that a ‚Äėhealthy body ensures a healthy mind‚Äô. It is therefore our aim to ensure that we provide all of our staff with the opportunity to participate in various sporting activities. This has and continues to instill a healthy attitude and atmosphere in our working and living environment.

Our Madikwe Mambas running club is not just an ordinary running club; it is a running club with a cause Рand that is one of social good! Our runners run for their community as well as for the upliftment of the children in their communities.

The Purple Rain staff comes from three different villages namely:

  • Obakeng

  • Welbedacht¬†

  • Molatedi¬†and

  • Welgeval

Our Madikwe Mambas runners, being members of these communities, ascertain what the exact needs of the communities are. A priority project list is then drawn up after which the runners then try and raise funds for their communities.

Since the inception of the running club:

  • Cr√®ches have been built,

  • School playgrounds have been upgraded,

  • Bus shelters have been erected,

  • Old lands have been transformed into lusern fields with water pivots

And so the list goes on!

Well done team Mambas! You are an inspiration to all of those around you.

As the Comrades Marathon 2016 draws closer and is now less than 50 days away, the team is in full swing training mode and we are proud to announce that this year we have 12 runners that have entered the race!

You Are Beautiful! Remember That…

For all those beautiful ladies I know.

jojobayvel

This video touches my heart and causes a catch in my throat every time I watch it. So many girls, teenagers, ladies, mothers, wives and daughters so often forget that each an every one of you is BEAUTIFUL.

Remember always, as we live in a fickle and fake world filled with images of perfect women, with perfect bodies and perfect faces that fill timelines and shopping lines: beauty need not lie in your aesthetics – ¬†as a beautiful heart lasts forever, beyond wrinkles and scars and this life’s untold ‘war wounds’.

Never ever let your outer beauty distract others from your internal love and beautiful hearts.

Your external beauty may never be good enough – as there are too many things someone will want to change about you to make you more beautiful in their eyes. Forget THEM they are insecure and will bring you down.

Your internal beauty may only be appreciated by those who are special and lucky enough to get to know you. BE patient, these people are worth it.

I am blessed to know ladies of all ages who are lucky enough to be beautiful on the outside and inside… the difference is these ladies whose looks will eventually fade will always have eyes and a soul that reflect the inner beauty of their souls.

I am proud to know each of you….

And ladies, most importantly remember that you are created perfect and beautiful in the image of the man who died to know and love you. Jesus.

Birthday Wishes & A Little Time Capsule To Our Nephew Cole Campbell Darn√©

I am posting this a little late my darling Cole. You will learn that this blonde Aunty is a little ditzy but I do adore you and have had this note on my phone since your 3rd birthday. It has also taken almost half that time  (not really, only a week) to choose pics of you, as every one I have, and find is just too adorable. Buddy, here is your Happy Birthday wish and time capsule from your aunties.I hope you read it one day and know just how special you are and always will be to us.

To our darling Cole,

Little dude three years ago you made your beautiful, kind and oh so intelligent mommy and super handsome and pretty rad daddy, so very excited that you were going to make your debut into in this world. At the same time you made your legendary “pops”, gorgeous “goggo” and two aunties, Jojo (me) and Debs, the happiest people in the world. Little guy your impending arrival was like God had given us a promise rainbow in our lives and this time we knew what our little pot of gold was!

Three years later buddy and you have not disappointed! You are without a doubt the most adorable, kindest and loving little guy on the planet.

So today you turn three!¬†Wow big boy … That is a pretty big milestone and let this Aunty tell you that you have been such a good boy. No terrible twos, just smiles and giggles and nose crinkling, okay maybe sometimes a little tantrum or two – but we know that this is just because you are such a clever little dude who knows what he wants and when he wants it. Who can blame you? We are all the same.

Little Parolie, as bright as you are you wont really understand this letter from your aunties until you are a little older,so your “writing” Aunty is giving you a little time capsule for you to read one day: to remember just how much we do¬†now¬†and always will love you and of course a few of the amusing things you have done that have us all in fits of giggles so very often.

Cole Darn√©¬† it baffles my mind that you,at just three, have the best sense of humour and little character.Some little memories for you to read one day come to mind right now…

Just the other day at school you decided that clothes were just a silly idea and decided to take yours all off – this has now become a regular habit and I think you already know that when you are older you will have the perfect body to pull it off – when your teacher asked why you didn’t want to wear your clothes, you simply replied “because I want to be free” … Ahh buddy haha I think your teacher battled to hide her laughter.

Already having the ultimate ball skills, little pumpkin, you go to soccer and don’t feel it’s necessary to listen to the coach – who has to fetch you at least ten times a lesson from the other side of the field. Whilst everyone else is trying to kic the ball, you come back from your little venture,¬†hit it with a stick then go sit on it, kicking the ball just comes to easy to our little treasure¬†.. And yet buddy, despite your mischievousness, ¬†your coach adores you! Because Cole you will just look at him wrinkle that nose and say “but it’s fun”.

You have a complete obsession with dinosaurs and particular with the T-Rex! Sometimes in that¬† little mind I think you think you are one! Your¬†Aunty Debs and I were watching a dinosaur movie with you one day and you told us that a big “colenado” was coming with “comets”, when we told you it was a “volcano” you were adamant that there was nothing of the sort… It was a “colenado” and that was that!

Your funny and naughty daddy has taught you that when someone asks you what our president is you say a “useless moron” you also blame this useless moron for turning off the lights. You think a fly ¬†should be called a “bloody fly” ¬†– which they should¬†as they are so bloody annoying. You have also decided you don’t eat ‘shit bread’, only the nice bread your amazing mom makes you! These little dude , are swear words so you really shouldn’t say them at 3,¬†but you my precious Cole are so cute that none of us can say a word or¬†tell you not to swear – instead we¬†just erupt in giggles.

Your adorable habits our precious boy, are the things you do like :

Wrinkling that little nose when you are thinking
Saying to your mommy and daddy out of the blue “I love you”
You give loads of hugs and cuddles
You will share any toys or sweets ( not many kiddies do this )
And you think your mom is so perfect – which she is – that she is giving you Jesus as a little brother!

Because we live far away I only have a few close close memories for now but your mom and dad tell us lots of your funny and cute antics so I am writing those down to! Plus in just a month we will be living a few minutes away from you, so I think I may have to buy a couple of notebooks Рyou are far to entertaining for me to full only one!

Buddy just the other day at school your friend  Рa little girl, thought your apple looked really nice. So in your precious little way you took a huge bite and gave it to her. Already a little charmer our handsome guy.

Those are a few for now buddy, I’m going to write a little more to you later on this year,¬†when I have a few more memories to share.

Today dearest Cole, at your birthday party, I can’t wait to see you run around and play with your friends. Getting all dirty and eating chocolates ( which you don’t do often ) having a¬†¬†sugar drunk rush and opening pressies, and then telling us when you are so tired you can hardly see and are walking sideways, that you are ” never ever going to sleep… Ever”!

PS Your mommy and daddy have made today extra special for you with a pirate party! Wow … They love you so much buddy you are one lucky guy and in return you¬†give them such joy as ¬†you are an angel child.

One day you are going to know the most precious gift they have given you on this birthday is the news of the impending arrival, in just a few months, of another little dude Рyour little brother, who is going to be your bestest friend in the whole world. You will fight, you will upset each other, you may not even like each other some times but at the end of the day when you are sad or want to share a little secret or you just want to laugh and giggle and get up to mischief, there is nothing better in the world then having a brother to do this with.

Through life you are going to learn that family is the most important thing in the world and just how lucky you are to have been born into a family where we are all best friends! Family Parolie, is the most amazing gift.

Our little guy, we wish you a happy happy happy birthday. Our prayer for you is that our Heavenly Daddy protects you and keeps you safe and healthy and happy always. He loves you more then all of us put together, and that is a lot as we love you more then there are fish in the sea and higher then the moon in the sky! He will always be there for you little buddy, so chat to him often and tell him what you want ( just not chocolates or toys … your mom told him not to¬†¬†give those gifts as she wants you happy and healthy and not too spoilt ¬†).He will instead give you¬†the gifts of love and peace and happiness and of knowing that you are never alone. We pray our little dude that God will give you the most incredible life. You are destined for amazing things and if you keep Him close you will achieve all of these things and more. Hey buddy you may even be our president one day, and definitely not a useless moron!

So Cole Darn√©, ¬†again happy third birthday. Your aunties, pops and goggo are even up from Johannesburg to see you to celebrate (it’s also just an excuse to see out favourite little boy in the world) we can’t wait to live so close to you and not in horrible joburg!

You dearest Cole are loved more then you know by all of us, you melt our hearts and fill our lives with joy and laughter.

Thank you buddy for being that little ray of sunshine, our pot of gold, our little perfect and a blessing from Jesus (not your little brother) but rather the real one, who made you perfect as perfect can be, with a little help from your mom and dad.

Happy birthday our buddy.

We love you always and forever, infinity and beyond and more then anything

Your Aunties

Debs and Jojo (Becky)

Because You’re My Mom

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Because you are my mom you loved me before I was ever seen
You thanked God for this miracle, this little human being
So exciting, yet fragile it all must have seemed to you then
Hearing my little heart beat inside you, now life begins

Because you are my mom no pain was too great for you to bear
Now you’re a mother and I your child with joys and pains to share
And so into this world my life began each breath now on my own
One day we will look back at just how much I’ve grown

Because you are my mom you worried for me within your every bone
You finally let go of my little hand to take my first steps on my own

Because you are my mom you showed me through the years
To care about others and their feelings and the things that they hold dear

Because you are my mom you taught me right from wrong
Understanding that my faith in God will forever keep me strong
Showing me that being my own person is the only tool I’ll need
When morals and values are your foundation to succeed

Because you are my mom you loved me enough to also be my friend
You would be right there in ways that no one could see or ever comprehend
When there was no way I thought you could ever understand
There you would be, non-judging and willing to lend a hand

Because you are my mom, God’s gift to me was you
As your daughter I will always love you and promise to be true
I thank you for so many things and will try to never make you sad or blue

Because you are my mom, and one-day I will be a mother too
I pray I never forget all that you’ve been through
I am your daughter and in your image I am proud to be
By the grace of the Lord you were created, and then I came to be
