Celebrities for Good Causes is a recently established charitable foundation, founded by Lillian Dube, as an all-inclusive organization designed to harvest fellow celebrity power for good causes.
We intend to help a number of causes in South Africa. We have reached out and partnered with a number of high profile individuals and celebrities who would love to lend a hand and make a difference in the lives of people within South African communities, but do not have the time and/or resources to make a meaningful contribution in a sustainable manner.
Celebrities from the arts, sports and other fields have come together in an effort to draw attention to issues that negatively impact the lives of children, women and youth within communities. Strategic alliances have been formed with organisations involved in these areas and celebrity power will be used to champion these causes in a meaningful and sustainable manner thus making a difference in the lives of South Africans through active promotion of these good causes and projects.
The foundation will forge strategic partnerships with various community based organisations that are already actively involved in dealing with specific issues impacting these communities. The foundation will leverage celebrity power to champion, raise awareness and get people and fellow celebrities actively involved in good causes and community initiatives.
Starring roles on high profile TV shows such as the role of much loved character Sister Bettina in Soul City “I love the fact that, as Sister Bettina, I have helped hundreds of South Africans learn about issues that affect them daily. I’’ve taught them why it’s important to quit smoking, and shown them that there is never an excuse for domestic violence,” she states. “It’s so rewarding to be part of Soul City. Most people don’t die of disease; they die of ignorance. I’m so proud that I am helping to change that”
