Embrace the power of pink this month

JOBURG – R1 from every pink punnet of fresh mushrooms sold at Pick n Pay stores nationwide during October will be donated to the R4R’s Ditto Project.

It is once again time to get out your cooking utensils and support the Power of Pink campaign.

The campaign, which funds the work of non-profit organisation Reach for Recovery (R4R), is supported by the South African Mushroom Farmers Association.

R1 from every pink punnet of fresh mushrooms sold at Pick n Pay stores nationwide during October will be donated to the R4R’s Ditto Project.

The special project provides free silicone prostheses to breast cancer survivors who cannot afford reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy.

According to the organisation’s national chairperson Stephné Jacobs, last year saw the campaign raise a record amount of money since its inception.

“Big hearted South Africans contributed just under R700 000 despite their own financial hardships brought on by a year of lockdowns and job cuts. We and the Ditto Project recipients have been truly humbled by this generosity,” she said.

Mushroom Farmer’s Association chairperson Ross Richardson added that the group could not be prouder to be part of the campaign.

“The dedication of every R4R volunteer, [breast cancer survivor themselves], and the immense kindness of all South Africans who support the campaign is such restorative testimony to the goodness that lives in people.”
