RapidStudio supports TLC

TLC - The Love of Christ Children's Home... because every baby deserves a family

When Romy Antrobus contacted us with a request to discount our photo calendars which they want to sell to raise funds for TLC, we didn't think twice to donate the calendars. We consider it a privilege to help in this little way.

Thea Jarvis and her family are truly heavenly creatures walking and working amongst us. I was touched very deeply when reading Thea and Pippa's blogs. Captured in every single word are traces of a love and sincerity which very few people in this world possess.

My own words do not come close enough to describing the work these lovely people do with our children, so I've borrowed their own words in order to get the message across.

"Each person in our family was meant to be there, and each one is loved. Whether born or adopted into the family, each person is beautifully unique and treasured." ...read more

The Jarvis family cares for babies affected by HIV, abandoned or neglected.  "In a country ravaged by HIV-AIDS it is sadly not only those who are tragically infected who have their lives disrupted, but also those of their families, often innocent babies." ...read more

Some children are legally adopted by the Jarvis family.  "In the past there have been those little ones for whom we have not been able to find a family. When a baby arrives at TLC we are committed to them, from the time they are infants and as they grow up."  ...read more

They change lives.  "Much of the work at TLC is done by young people from around the world. Many of these youths have never been away from home for an extended period of time. During the time that they provide us with an invaluable service in time and effort, TLC provides a safe environment in which they can stretch their wings and experience a little of the real world." ...read more


They do not survive on charity alone.  "At TLC there are a lot of hungry little mouths to feed. Out of this need, the Sustainable Farming Project was born, aiming to put some food on the table and eventually generate some income." ...read more


There is so much to be said about this group of people investing their time, energy and unconditional love into these tiny souls.  I just couldn't put it all in one blog entry.  Visit their website, sign up for the newsletter and find out how you can support them - either by volunteering or committing yourself to one of their projects or simply by making a donation.

To purchase a calendar in support of TLC, please contact Romy Antrobus at romy.antrobus@gmail.com.  ALL proceeds from these sales are donated to The Love of Christ Children's Home.

Team Building @ Gold Reef City

Early Morning on Wednesday the 19th of August, I asked my flu if we could have "THE TALK", I’m sure there and then, it knew it was time for us to part ways. There was no way I was gonna miss Gold Reef City, just the week before someone asked me “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” and I couldn’t answer them. I was ready to take on the roller coasters.


We’ve had so many team building sessions in the past but this was by far the best for me and for most of my colleagues. We were divided into 4 teams, Red, Blue, Green and Black for an Amazing Race type of challenge. I was in the Black Team, we wanted to win but we all decided that having fun was important too! We watched a 15 minute 4d movie, which was absolutely incredible but then, it was time for thrill ride number 1, the Tornado, just looking at it made my tummy turn and I unfortunately decided to sit it out, watching my team mates being tossed and turned around like they weighed nothing at all ma…

Hidden Light Revealed

I noticed the steam from my shower revealing the morning shafts of light through the blinds. A fleeting moment captured with the camera closest to me... my iPhone.
