Fathers get to feel special today, thanks to Darren's Tip Jar

Fathers get to feel special today, thanks to Darren's Tip Jar

Darren's Tip Jar had two different children who had each nominated their fathers. 

Isaac Darren's Tip Jar

We call today's segment of Darren's Tip Jar - "Father's Day", because the people nominated were both dads who were clueless about Darren's Tip Jar and their nominations. 

Braxton Lutchmiah nominated his dad, Isaac Lutchmaih, who delivers the daily newspaper to subscribers. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, many papers have dropped in their area, thus resulting in major pay cuts as they get paid per copy sold. 

He is the breadwinner and works hard to provide for his family. He does not get days off and works 24/7.  Braxton shares that his dad has been working many years in this field and there were some instances while delivering the paper in the early parts of the morning he was hijacked and even stabbed for his vehicle. Isaac still pushes on every day regardless. 

This nomination made a beautiful blessed start to his day. Take a listen: 

Here is another dad - Jeremy Vandecar. At age 77, he calls himself the "oldest DJ in the world". He is a karaoke DJ in Johannesburg. 

His daughter, Shana Ashpole, nominated him, but was unavailable when we tried to call her earlier to connect her with her dad. 

Shana shared her dad earned a little pension but has hardly had any work since lockdown. He runs a professional karaoke setup at restaurants and bars. Many of the establishments have closed their doors and others feel that karaoke doesn’t work with curfew at 21:00. This has been his primary income. He feels like a complete failure as he cannot contribute anything and has very few working years left of his life. 

Have a listen to the charismatic man as we called him earlier this morning: 

We could not have had a better Tuesday morning sharing the little we can give from Darren's Tip Jar. 

Lottoland.co.za has made changing people's lives possible and we cannot thank them enough for these two weeks celebrating Darren's Decade.
