From Bleak Reality to Real Amazing
Packed with all the high emotions and all the big numbers worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, JAM unveils its ‘Real Amazing’ campaign to a star-studded gathering of guests at a glittering fundraising event held at the exclusive Avianto Wedding Venue in Johannesburg, South Africa on 15 September 2016. Guests are pleasantly surprised to find that they themselves are the heart of JAM’s new campaign. They are the ‘amazing’. JAM is the ‘real’. The message this night is clear: JAM and its donors make a powerful combination.
History of JAM
JAM has been at the forefront of the war against hunger since 1984, when founder, Peter Pretorius, was left stranded in Pambarra, Mozambique. There he witnessed the horrific consequences of starvation with children dying everyday around him. Together with his wife Ann, they resolved to commit their futures to contributing towards the eradication of hunger in Africa.
