HUMANITARIAN GIVING & EDUCATION CAUSES

“If we were to succeed in educating and influencing our local communities in the value of sustainable hunting, we will need to start by giving. Only then will the true value of hunting be realized. ” - Author unknown.

The John X Foundation has a rich history of involving hunters in our local communities. Since that first SCI Blue Bag, many hunters have subsequently joined in the Blue Bag program.  Many have brought blue bags stuffed to the point of bursting; some have simply filled extra space in their luggage, while others find it easier to donate cash, which the foundation intern uses to purchase items on their behalf. 100% of all donations go directly to targeted projects.

The number and amount of donations continues to grow substantially each year. Through targeted coordinated donations the John X Foundation can focus on bigger projects that impact many more than ever before.

The Foundation accepts gifts of all types and sizes. Past donations have included everything from school supplies, tooth brushes, water bottles, blankets, toys, building/construction supplies, cash, and much, much more.

Many of our past donors have enjoyed the privilege of delivering their gifts in person. There is simply nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s eyes or a teacher’s face light up when you personally handover your contribution/s. Time permitting, we will make arrangements so that you can personally go onsite to touch the lives of those you are helping. We highly recommend this as one of the most rewarding parts of your safari experience.

For a personalized answer to all your questions with regards to the John X Foundation, please feel free to contact Trish at info@johnxsafaris.co.za. She will be more than glad to assist with contribution options on the most current projects.
