That time of the year has arrived! Where the ambiance of festivity, celebrations of success, closure of the old and the opening of new chapters of what lies ahead, fill the air. For many children, it is however a sad time as they have to go without.

It is for this reason that the Markets team in Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking, has taken it upon themselves to be part of the Santa Shoebox Project to help bring a smile to a child.

“This is a project close to my heart in many ways. As individuals, we cannot be everywhere, but through making a donation in whatever form, goes to places we may not be able to reach,” says Sylvia van Nieuwenhuizen, Head: Interbank Settlements and Payments NCIB, who spearheaded the project. “We have a phenomenal group of people, who just pitched in to help. Watching the trading floor come alive in a different and unique way, created a spark in my heart that I know will be a flame in a child’s.”

We are privileged to be a part of the Santa Shoebox Project for the great work they are doing, while at the same time it brings a smile to others, and simultaneously ignites closer working relationships.

“We may not be able to change the world, but we can impact a child, one at a time,” exclaims van Nieuwenhuizen.

This is truly #MoreThanAShoebox.
