They are only R250.00 a ticket and even ONE ticket is a seed & an answer.

What can one ticket do?

[Mustard seeds are the small round seeds of various mustard plants. The seeds are usually about 1 to 2 millimetres (0.039 to 0.079 in) in diameter and may be coloured from yellowish white to black.

#2 - Spread the word

Each one of us has a network of friends, family, colleagues, social groups. 

We might not be in HR or dealing with the organisations B-BBEE, we might not even work in an organisation, but we can share this competition with our networks and spread the word as far and wide as possible. Maybe your company will be interested to support us through their Socio-Economic Development fund. (Major B-BBEE points for them.)

*The prizes alone make this an exciting competition for individuals & organisations alike!

#3 - follow us on social media

We are on Facebook & Twitter & even WhatsApp for updates & chats.

Daily updates and information will be given. Promotions will be shared on a weekly basis - how you can double your entry without buying another ticket, or random Facebook & Twitter & WhatsApp friend draws, or just because we feel amazing about what we do.

WHAT are the prizes that can be won?




#1 - Prizes for Individuals

We have a separate competition (prizes) for individuals; so that the person who bought one ticket does not compete in the draw with a company who bought may have bought 10 or more tickets.

The same prizes are up for individuals & companies, but the number of prizes will be divided pro-rata based on the % of individuals who bought a ticket compared to the % of companies who bought a ticket before the final draw.

#2 - Finish 2021STRONG calendar

Every person or company that buys FOUR raffle tickets will receive a "Finish 2021 Strong" calendar. Not just one calendar, but one for EVERY FOUR tickets bought.

The "Finish 2021 Strong" calendar is not a monthly but 52-week calendar - clearly marked with South African holidays& motivational quotes. It is a dry erase surface calendar (with whiteboard pens) that can be used for short and long term planning.

Austin Kleon wrote a brilliant book called "Steal like an artist". We took his advice and "stole" the calendar idea from Jon Acuff and adapted it to the South African environment.

#3 - Prizes for companies

There is more available for companies on top of the general prizes. 

Companies can also win AET training contracts, Learnership training contracts, Computer training contracts & Essential Skills training contracts.

(*That does not even include the amazing B-BBEE points that can be obtained under area 5 of the B-BBEE Scorecard!)   *Supporting an EME (Level 2 company) + Non Profit (18a Certificate) + Community Outreach.

#4 - Community Prize

Prizes for communities?

YES! a 1/5th of every ticket goes towards:

* supporting local welfare organisations in the East & West Rands (they support ANY family that needs special assistance over these tough times,

* plus we have identified a number of families that have NOTHING and no hope for the Christmas season. They will be hosted to a very special Christmas lunch and go home with food parcels, toys and school supplies for the kids in the family. Every child needs a special Christmas day! You might not believe in Christmas but the majority of the learners we work with and families we support do. We really want to make this a special day for them, not a bleak and hopeless day.

#5 - MASKS for the community

We are donating a mask & safety information brochure to a local community member for every ticket sold. If we reach our goal of 8 000 tickets sold, that means distributing 8 000 masks in the informal settlements (black & white settlements in the West & East Rand of Gauteng) with a motivation pamphlet in English, Afrikaans, Zulu & Xhosa why it is crucial for all to maintain safety measures for the foreseeable future.

Every person who buys a ticket will go onto our Hall of Fame.

Every company who buys a ticket (or 10) will go onto our Hall of Fame.

Everyone will receive a Hall of Fame Certificate via email.
