Because he cannot put smiles on people's faces with beautiful make-up, we were able to put a smile on this make-up artist's face. 

Warren Killian

This morning we had the chance to make Wednesday morning beautiful for Warren Killian, a make-up artist and Emma who is a travel agent, all courtesy of Darren's Tip Jar and Lottoland.co.za. 

Warren was nominated by Patricia Manickum after he quit his call center job to pursue his passion for make-up last. That was an unfortunate time for him to dive into entrepreneurship in that field as Level 5 lockdown in South Africa took over most of the year. 

He has been struggling along trying to do online make up lessons and odd events' photo shoots here and there. Unfortunately this is not enough to support him and his mother in the home. Patricia shares that he is an extremely talented young man and has such a lot to offer, but the situation right now is so bleak and she hates to see him lose hope in his dream.

Here's how our call with Warren went: 

Kerry-Leigh Alcock nominated Emma who is a mother to his little son's friend. 

Kerry-Leigh shares that Nathan is 5 years old and his mom, Emma is in the tourism and travel industry and they have been taking a beating since the first lock down began. 

Taking a look  back at last year on Nathans birthday party she spoke to Emma who stated they were without income and tried very hard to make their sons birthday party happen as it was something very special for him. About 2 weeks ago, she saw them again , and it has seemed that they are really really in a bad place. 

Emma mentioned just as they were seeing a little light, the level 4 lockdown came in again and took away all their hope of recovery. 

"My heart bleeds for this family , as they are the most amazing little family with so much hope yet every time they see the little light it gets taken away from them. I am a mommy of 2 little angels and I can relate to how it feels not to be able to provide for your little human , it is the worst feeling on this planet," Kerry-Leigh shares. 

Emma is a beam of light and you can hear it through the phone. 

Take a listen: 

There are so many people to help in the world who need help. We are elated and honoured to share the little we have with the ones we are able to reach. 

Be sure to make your nomination for financial help for any businesses/entrepreneurs/artists that were hit hard especially because of the pandemic.
