Jenny Morris goes to jail in aid of The Sunflower Fund

Categories: Health

Food Network celebrity chef Jenny Morris aka the Giggling gourmet will be jailed and held in custody on the 20 September 2014 to help raise funds for The Sunflower Fund. She will be kept in a cage as a prisoner at the Cape Quarter Centre, Waterkant Street, Green Point until she reaches her targeted bail amount.

Jenny has put aside her busy schedule to pledge herself to making a difference in the lives of all those diagnosed with Leukaemia and other blood related disorders. Her objective is to raise money to pay for the tissue typing of potential bone marrow stem cell donors to increase the Bone Marrow Registry of South Africa in turn giving patients suffering with leukaemia and other life threatening blood disorders the hope of finding their 1:100 000 donor match.

The Sunflower Fund is the only organisation in Africa that educates and recruits healthy, committed and caring donors and pays for the tissue typing of these donors at a cost of R2 000-00 each. We appeal to friends, family and society to help Jenny Morris reach her bail target amount of R20 000,00.
