Baking with the Robin Hood Foundation

Yesterday we had the privilege of joining the Robin Hood Foundation at a crèche in Zwelibomvu, which has been one of their great projects. Robin Hood is a beautiful organisation that caters to those most needy in Zwelibomvu. Their aim for the day was to teach the children some baking skills whilst showing them much needed love and encouragement.


Through baking children are being taught fine motor skills which is a fundamental aspect of education and critical to early development. Furthermore, it is stimulating creativity a key way for the kids to express themselves in a fun way. As a company we purchased some baking essentials and ingredients for delicious cookies to ultimately bless the children. After a rather treacherous drive out to the crèche we pulled up to the most immaculate building that had sweeping views of the rural valley. We could feel the excitement of the kids as we were greeted by many songs and jingles that oozed enthusiasm. No time was wasted and we went straight into the mixing, decorating and creating of the cookies. It was such a pleasure to work with the children as they took full advantage of the activity with joyful hearts. Some of us took time to sit and engage with the younger ones, to give them that one on one attention they so needed. Whatever was left from the afternoon was then contributed to the crèche so they could expand and further learn baking skills.

What an honour to be part of the day and extremely humbling to give to those less fortunate.

Vet Products Online has been operating effectively for 12 years, but this year I thought it was time to progress to the next step of online marketing and social networking. MJ Media was recommended to me to assist and manage Facebook and Google marketing. Bridgette and Giselle are two stars in their field, both professional and enthusiastic. Their support is reliable and their turn around time to requests, queries or project needs is speedy. We have certainly benefited positively from MJ Media input and I highly recommend them to other companies who have internet marketing requirements.

Bridgette and Giselle have been our online partners for about 4 years now. Flexible Workspace sells office space and related services in the B2B market and as the founder not only am I convinced that Online is the most effective channel for our offering but that MJ are the right service provider for us. Being a relatively small (but growing) business, we need to be nimble and they in turn need to be ready and geared to move with us – MJ gets this. Having access to the decision maker/driver of the business is also important to me – they have a personal touch that larger agencies are unable to replicate. Finally, and most importantly they produce results – from the time MJ took over our account they have increased our lead flow 5-fold. As a business owner this is all I’m interested in – lead generation and conversion – this is the real measure of Return on Investment and they have delivered in spades.
