Hello SussexSquad! Today we have a special guest Tola who joined us all the way from South Africa. This was just more of a conversation with our listeners we chatted about why she had an interest in Duke and Duchess? What does this union mean in South Africa especially the birth of the baby, what she thinks the future holds, and finally, what does the Sussex represent to South Africa. We talked about the Duke and Duchess thanking the Sussex Squad on instagram for #GlobalSussexBabyShower and what that meant to the fandom. We discussed people staying safe online and researching charities they are are donating to. Tola gave South African fans pointers on how to get their donations to lunch box matched.
Here are the charities we are currently promoting and fund-raising for per the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
The Lunchbox Fund provides a daily meal to orphaned and vulnerable school children in areas of South Africa. @TheLunchboxFund thelunchboxfund.org/donate/

Gwendolyn Best is awaiting a new lease on life. In 2011, she was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Over the years, her kidney function has declined and her illness has now progressed to stage-5. Gwendolyn is on dialysis, which leaves her tired and takes a toll on her quality of life. Doctors say a kidney transplant is critical.
