South Africa has a large number of underprivileged people in it's population, there are a number of factors that contribute to this, one of them being the high unemployment rate, from this the people who are most to suffer are the kids as many become abandoned or orphaned. Their life isn't a nice one and sometimes the smallest gestures mean the world to them. 

Every year for the past 8 years, one company in Durban has given these children a day that they won't forget. The IBV Children's VIP Day is one that warms the hearts of many, as it see's 3000 underprivileged children and their caregivers transported to a fantasy land for a day. This years event takes place on the 12th of August and the ICC Durban Exhibition Center. The day promises loads of treats and giveaways, as well as entertainment, food and treats by the truck load. 

CEO of IBV, Ashok Sewnarain and the creator of this event had this to say about this years event, "We have once again partnered with CEO's, business executives, pop stars, sportsmen and woman, who have volunteered to get involved to serve and entertain these children for a magical day.

The event is unique in that no cash donations are accepted from sponsors, instead corporates are encouraged to get involved on the day, or to make donations in kind (food, entertainment or goodies to give away). "We want your time and energy" Sewnarain urged, "and not your money, so come along and get your hands dirty. You'll see life through a different lens after serving at this event. and your life will change you forever"
