What is WOES?

Woes is an innovative, entertaining and interactive LIVE & FREE social media programme which has been assisting NPCs and Schools since the start of lockdown to raise more than R4,5mil. The NPC/School is at NO RISK and don’t have to budget for this intervention. 

Why this project?

As the Smile Foundation we have an extensive list of children awaiting surgery, our patient-surgery-budget has been depleted and we are working towards getting a minimum of 67 theatre slate days funded through this project, enabling us to gift 268 children (4 children per theatre slate day) with a SMILE this festive season.

Accept donations and free registrations directly through your event listings.

 By Charlene McKenzie

With limited capacities and free registrations for your events/gatherings, we would like to offer you our software and platform to assist with further donations to your organisations as well to register attendances. Do you have a conference you want your employees to register for? Tixsa has the solution for you.

With our customisable donations feature, your customers can become benefactors in the exact same place they purchase tickets or register for a free event or gathering.

Offering the option to donate in your online checkout can make a big difference. In many cases, your customers are already purchasing tickets to your event, so there is a good chance that they will be interested in further supporting your organisation when given the option. Plus, instead of accepting donations separately, it is all in one transaction, convenient for you and your customers. Not to mention, processing all these transactions through the same system provides you with streamlined financial reporting options and gives your customers a familiar checkout experience when donating.

Within our Admin, you can easily enable donations as you create your event. Once you turn this feature on, customers will see a box encouraging them to “Make a Donation,” with the option for them to enter any dollar amount. You may also set a suggested donation amount, which will automatically be added to the donation box, while still allowing customers to raise or lower the amount. The amount will get added to their total and paid for in one transaction, but you will be able to use our reporting tools to see donations and ticket sales separately.

Rina Hugo: Hartsliedere


Rina Hugo is  telkens in haar loopbaan as een van die mees veelsydigste sangeresse beskryf.  In haar suksesvolle loopbaan is haar plate en cd’s talle kere met goue en platinum status bekroon, het sy talle eerbewyse ontvang en belangrike  musiekpryse gewen.  Sy is ook telkens as die gewildste sangeres in die land aangewys en het al opgetree in feitlik alle tv-musiekprogramme wat op die lug was.

Rina het ‘n jarelange verbintenis met die Christelike Seemansorganisasie.  Sy het reeds meer as 400 kerk- en seniorburgeroptredes regoor Suid-Afrika gedoen, waartydens die doelstellings en werksaamhede van die CSO verduidelik en bevorder is. Toe hierdie aksies en ook die aktiewe sendingwerk in ons hawens skielik gestop is deur die Covid-19 pandemie het Rina besluit om ‘n aanlyn musiekprogram ten bate van die CSO aan te bied.

Haar program bestaan uit geestelike sowel as sekulêre liedere wat sy oor die jare gesing en opgeneem het.  “Ek het van my bekende musiek gekies wat my tydens die inperkingstyd bemoedig het en ek hoop dit gaan dieselfde vir die gehoor doen. Dis alles musiek wat wat my na aan die hart lê en daarom noem ek die program, Hartsliedere.
