Cape Town – Brother and sister duo Bobby and Karlien van Jaarsveld helped keep a roof over the heads of 18 abandoned babies with their new reality TV show.
Bobby and Karlien initially collected R300 000 after which VIA viewers and Bobby and Karlien’s fans donated a further R337 670 over the past two weeks on the crowd funding website Candystick.
On Wednesday morning the brother and sister went on air with Dianne Broodryk and Rian van Heerden to help drive the final fundraising effort on their Jacaranda FM programme which saw them raising an incredible R951 000 and counting.
“It is a great relief and we are very grateful for all the contributions and support that we have received,” an ecstatic Merencia said.
