Grab your tissues... Christmas Wish with Belinda De La Rey, and Greg & Lucky
30 days ago
Life happens, and sometimes circumstances beyond your control knock you down. 947 wants to help you get back up and level up.
947 Xmas Wish is back, and for 6 incredible days Greg & Lucky will touch the lives of people across Joburg by giving them a boost, a break, and a big reason to smile. After all, one big break is all it takes to make life worth loving.
Listen to the Greg & Lucky Show every afternoon, from 10 to 17 December, to hear heartwarming stories from ordinary people facing all kinds of extraordinary challenges; and to see what we do to make their 2018 end on a high note.
We received this letter from her daughter-in-law, Bianca. Her mother-in-law is a woman of gold who takes care of 10 people and Bianca wanted something special for Belinda to help her #LevelUp.
Here's the story of Belinda...
Belinda de la Rey is a woman of gold, and this wish was sent in by her son’s fiancée, Bianca. Over the 12 years that Bianca has known Belinda, she’s done nothing but put other people’s needs above her own.
When Bianca and her fiancé Damian (Belinda’s son) found themselves in financial trouble, Belinda did not turn them away – instead she lent them a helping hand…
She puts Bianca’s daughter in school, looks after Bianca’s 3 nieces in the afternoon, and every night she cooks a hearty meal for 10 people.
Belinda doesn’t even let her ill-health get in the way of helping others – she does it all while suffering from thrombosis in her leg and clots in her heart.
She does all this out of the goodness of her heart, despite having very limited finances herself.
For years Belinda has been trying to save money for her bathroom which has countless broken tiles, taps that don’t work, and needs to be renovated.
Even though she’s desperate to fix her bathroom, Belinda never hesitates to dig into her savings just to help someone who she feels needs the money more than she needs a new bathroom.
Listen to the incredibly beautiful moment that happened on the show...
Thank you so much to Greg & Lucky and our friends over at Union Tiles for making this amazing wish come true. What a special way to give back this Christmas. Belinda will be receiving a full bathroom renovation so that she no longer has to avoid her own bathroom, anymore.
Here's some of their incredible products in action.
