Artists assist those in the medical field through Smile Foundation and Tixsa initiative.
Several South African artists are now also offering their services to assist those in the medical field by supporting the Smile Foundation Tixsa’s initiative. This campaign was recently launched and involves the purchase of essential supplies / PPE for those in the medical industry – and anyone from businesses to individuals can contribute. Many medical workers are currently combating COVID-19 and unfortunately safety gear is becoming less.
Many Artists have already joined hands and we urge all agents to contact the team to sign their artists up in making a difference. Legendary singer-songwriter, Anton Goosen hosted an online show on Saturday, April 25, at 17:00 and a portion of the proceeds was donated to this campaign. The public can look forward to more big names in the pipeline.
While most South Africans can attempt to stay safe and healthy at their homes, thousands of medical workers are treating the infected. This is where Smile Foundation wants to make a change and take hands with the country to support each other. With the involvement of artists, their supporters can enjoy their shows while making a difference.
This is now the time where your contribution will have the greatest impact ever and that anyone is now in the position to make a difference.
