You often hear of competitions where you can win R1 million, but you never meet the winner. Or you hear of already wealthy people winning cars and money, when you kind of wanted them to go somewhere else.
Well, yesterday, I not only met a winner, but one whose life and kids’ futures have changed as a result of the win. Nokukhanya Ngcobo is a mom of two (a one year old, and a two year old) and the breadwinner for her family and extended family. She won R1 million in the Huggies Dry Comfort promotion (she bought a pack between July and September), and said, about her win: “My kids will have the education I always dreamed of having, and will have the lives I always wanted them to have”.
She also said that she would finally be able to buy tombstones for her deceased parents’ gravesites.
I love happy endings and this is my feel-good for the week.
