Dear DBF Tribe
21 Days have passed since #lockdownsa commenced.
Today would have been the day when the lights came back on. The morning you came home to us.
A day we’ve looked forward to like kids on Xmas morning since the 26th of March.
However, as per our rock star President’s announcement, we’re going to need to wait at least another 2 weeks before that happens. Maybe a week or so longer.
And so, we’ve had to look at the practical and pragmatic elements of this lockdown that extend further than being denied the opportunity to connect, play and train with you.
Some of you have been as deeply impacted, financially, by this lockdown as we are. Some of you are walking through the same fires as we are, and are naturally concerned about how you’re going to make it through the storm.
We get that.
We wanted to touch base with you, our tribe, and let you know that we will not be running any debit orders on the 25th and 30th of April or the 01st of May 2020. We get that you’re in a position where every Rand matters and we wanted to make sure that you’re okay this month.
Some of you have asked us to debit you for this month in order to support the DBF tribe through a super tough period. We are so grateful. Thank you.
Grateful that you are in a financial position where you are supported. Grateful that you are able to support us, and grateful that you choose to do so. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
We have cancelled the debit order run so if you do still wish to make a contribution, be it the full debit order amount or any amount you are able to contribute, please make an EFT payment to the details below along with a reference of your name.
We’ll get a digitally signed autograph of Steve and Saddam, our DBF mascot, through to you as a small gesture of our deep appreciation for your contribution.
A photograph we hope you keep for years to come, and recognise that it is your kindness, generosity, and thoughtfulness that helped us come through the other side of this storm.

Whilst we are confident that we’ll crack this Covid code relatively soon, we’ll continue to update you as we find out more from the President and executive leadership of South Africa.
May your God bless you and your families at this time. You’re in our thoughts, hearts and minds, and we can’t wait until you’re back. #wishyouwerehere
Tas, Steve and the DBF Dream Team
