We have all, at some time or another, felt that jaded feeling... no-one is hearing us, people aren't listening, I simply can't keep their attention...

The earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January 2010 has caused unprecedented devastation and suffering to the country and its people.

In response to this tragedy, the international community has already raised millions of dollars in support of emergency relief and reconstruction efforts. However, much more needs to be done over a sustained period of time to support Haitians and the rebuilding of their country.

In many respects, 2010 represents a highlight year for South Africa with the global media spotlight focused on the headline-grabbing event of the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup.

But what else can we do in South Africa to ride the wave of the feel-good factor amongst the diverse population before, during and after the last whistle is blown?
