A few Joburg Stories

26 04 2010

So I sent out a call to all Joburgers to send in some of their own stories, and I have had a great response, so over the next few weeks il be posting some new stories from Joburgers. SO here goes…..

I am a YMJG ‘er saw your post about cool JHB stories.

Great day in JHB

I found out about You make Joburg great “ when you were all standing on the corner of William Nicol and Sandton Drive cheering the passing traffic“ early one morning , I spent some time that day on the net finding out what it was all about , loved the concept and the whole day seemed to have a great positive vibe .

That afternoon on the way home from work I was stuck in traffic, also on William Nicol and I watched as a young guy kept jumping out of his car a few car lengths ahead of me and approaching other cars every time the traffic stopped.

I couldn’t see what was happening but further down the line I ended up behind his vehicle , there were 4 people In the car and this time I saw the guy jump out and head to the car next to him and pass that person a flower.

I motioned to ladies in the back of the car asking them where my flower was and they told me to come and get one, so I did, to big smiles all round. They went their way and I went mine, closer to home I pulled in at a garage and decided to pass it along, I stopped next to lady in her car, passed it to her through the window and told her that a stranger had given it to me and made me smile and I was doing the same, she smiled and said great I’ll pass it on to!

I got home wondering how many people would smile that day.

Probably the best drive home in traffic I have ever had, a super wicked day that started with “You make Joburg great” and ended with people making Joburg great.

Hi Guys,

We’ve been in Jo’burg for the past half year developing a dynamic feel good movie that shows the best Jo’burg has to offer. We are finalizing production this Thursday and would love to have a ‘City of People’ shot with some “You make Joburg Great” ambassadors. Who should I call to make that happen? Looking forward to hear from anyone who can help make a plan asap!

Thanks a million!
