For many weeks, Darren, Keri, and Sky have been requesting applicants to write into The Big Favour. Finally, the team received a compelling letter from Angelique, a single mom whose life went downhill last year October.

Angelique broke up with her fiance a few months ago, which has since caused her much heartache. Having no place to stay and not knowing where her daughter's tuition fees would come from, she has had a really tough time. The break up from her fiance has left her with bad debt, and even though she received a 75% bursary, the uncertainty of paying for Miranda's first year's studies of R26,084.25 has been looming over her family. 

Despite Miranda's fees, she's in desperate need of a laptop to complete assignments and work. Working two jobs to keep things afloat, Angelique needed The Big Favour - and that's when Darren, Keri, and Sky decided to step in to help.

They called Maria Pavali, a Digital Strategist from LottoStar who had terrific news for Miranda and Angelique. The studio was filled with tears of joy when Maria told them what LottoStar will be doing.
