SCHOOLS PROJECT

Schools Project – pledge a fundraising project of your choice in support of NID.

The NID Schools Project involves schools taking on a fundraising project of their choice in support of NID. Projects may vary from a social day, coin laying, hosting a dance or anything easy that could easily slot into the school’s annual programme.

Schools can also get involved in the NID Change for Change project. The project involves the filling of small Change 4 Change money boxes with all the small and annoying change, which fill our wallets.

This project is however not limited to school participation. Colleges, universities, service organisations or any type of group can also get involved and donate the funds collected from their project to NID as a special gift.

RUN FOR THE DEAF

RUN FOR THE DEAF

This year, NID’s “Run for the Deaf” projects kicked off with the third Red vs Blue run which took place on 27 March 2018. This 6km fun run that was held for the first time in 2016, is already highly popular and is unlike any other: The winners are not those who finish first, but are determined by whether male (Blue) or female (Red) participants finish in the majority!  In 2017, the gents kicked sand in the face of the ladies and were crowned as champs, but this year the ladies evened the score.

On 31 March 30 athletes took part in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon and raised R 94 000 in total to the benefit of NID.

The NID Dusk & Dawn Trail Run will take place again on 23 and 24 November 2018.

HARDLOOP VIR DOWES

NID se “Hardloop vir Dowes” projekte het vanjaar weer afgeskop op ‘n hoogtepunt met die derde Rooi vs Blou wedloop wat op 27 Maart plaasgevind het. Dié 6km wedloop wat in 2016 die eerste keer aangebied is is reeds baie gewild en is anders as enige ander een: Die wenner(s) is nie wie eerste is nie, maar wie van mans of vroue die meeste is wat die wedloop voltooi! Die mans het verlede jaar die dames gewys waar Dawid die wortels gegrawe het, maar vanjaar het die vroue weer die oorwinning behaal.

Op 31 Maart het 30 atlete ook weer deelgeneem aan die Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon en gesamentlik R 94 000 ingesamel ten bate van NID.

Nog ‘n knoop in die oor om te maak is die NID Dusk & Dawn Trail Run wat weer vanjaar plaasvind op 23 en 24 November.

Vir meer inligting oor enige van hierdie projekte of om ‘n bydrae te maak, kontak fr.nid@nid.org.za.

PLEDGE YOUR BIRTHDAY

Pledge your birthday, nominate NID as beneficiary and request your family and friends to rather give a “gift” in support of NID, in celebration of your special day and in celebration of our 137th year of helping the Deaf and people with hearing loss.

We once received a donation from a new friend of the Deaf on request of one of her friends who celebrated his birthday. He had told his family and friends that he had received enough gifts and blessings over the years, and that the money they would have spent on him for a birthday gift, should rather go to a worthy cause. Special gestures like these are one of the ways that has made it possible for NID to make a difference in the lives of the Deaf and persons with hearing loss for the last 137 years.

Please consider following this example and doing the same. Pledge your birthday, nominate NID as beneficiary and request your family and friends to give a “gift” in support of our good cause and in celebration of our 137th year of helping the Deaf and people with hearing loss.

To pledge your birthday, email pa.deputy@nid.org.za.

NID DIY

We received several requests from the Deaf community for something that they can follow and that can be enjoyed by EVERYONE!

We thought that this was a great idea!

NID Sign Superstars is now replaced with NID DIY.

Watch Deaf people make things, cook food and surprise you with many more interesting things!
