And here we are again…December time! Time flew by and another year is about to end. We would like to wish you a beautiful holiday season and a new year of success and happiness and hopefully the magic and the thrill of the holiday season will stretch on onto 2017!

Through these words we could speak about our accomplishments of the year, the highlights of 2016, the many adventures we have lived or even our great plans for 2017. But no.

What we would really like to say is – throughout the holiday season; keep a little place in your schedule for those who are less fortunate. They are still kids in South Africa who will be spending Christmas without family, without presents or even without a decent meal. Close your eyes and picture yourself as a toddler and remember those happy times opening those presents under the tree with your loved ones by your side. These are some of the memories we cherish and take with us into adulthood. Some children will never have that. But these holidays, you can make a difference. You could become that one special person for a child- you could make Christmas…well a real Christmas! We would like to redirect you towards a Safe House whom XO has been collaborating with: The Rainbow of Hope House for children.




Often, we want to help but we just don’t really know how. It’s pretty simple, the kids of the Rainbow house (children who have been through various traumatic experiences) all stay together in one house and they rely on donations to go by. You are just welcome to pop by, drop a donation of your choice. It can be food, hygiene product, a Christmas present, festive decoration – it’s totally up to you!

You can find them on facebook : Rainbow of Hope

In warm appreciation of our association during the past year, we extend our very best wishes for a happy holiday season and all the best for 2017!
