When Erin turned one in June 2013 I asked our guests to bring gifts for The Grace Factory instead of gifts for Erin (nappies, formula, clothes etc.). I was overwhelmed by the response of our friends and family and how generous they were towards children they didn’t know.

Lately Alison has had many requests from parents that are hosting parties and collecting items for The Grace Factory instead of asking for gifts for their own children.  Thank you so much to everyone who has done this, I just LOVE the spirit of “giving is better than receiving”.

If you are hosting a party for your child and are keen to donate to The Grace Factory please email us at info@thegracefactory.co.za and we will arrange to send some flyers as well as thank you bookmarks. We will also collect the items at a date, venue and time convenient to you.
