We received the following nomination from Raelene...

Hi Fresh and team.

I would like to nominate my husband for a Fresh Deed. He is an unbelievable husband, world’s greatest dad and best friend to us all.

With this Virus being so rough on everyone he has had a difficult time as a musician to try and bring home an income. We are 8 months pregnant with three other kids and he's asthmatic, so I have pleaded with him not to go out and play with his friends making ama-piano beats.

We are struggling a bit and he is feeling the pressure to go play outside, as baby arrives soon.

I am asking for a special Thursday Fresh deed. He needs a recording mic in order to work from home. His laptop is also a bit tattered but he keeps assuring me that all he needs for now is a mic. Unfortunately, what I earn during this time only covers food and sometimes rent, so I cannot help him.

If you could find it in your hearts to assist this treasure I’m trying to keep from harm, I will be greatly blessed.

Thank you, Ray

We reached ou to our wonderful friends over at Dell South Africa to find out if they would be able to assist us and of course, there was not a moment of hesitiation from them.

We chatted to Client Solutions Director at Dell Technologies South Africa, Chris Buchanan, to find out how they would like to help help Raelen's wonderful family out?

I am on top of the world! What an incredible cause to be able to support, so thank you!

I do empathise with musicians. If any industry has been hit hard it's definitely the entertainment industry. We thought about what we can do and obviously we said we can help out by giving you a spanking new laptop. We can also recycle the old laptop, too.

Chris you are the biscuit of the year. We shall call you Eet-Sum-More - my favourite biscuit.

Dell has more than generously donated a Dell Inspiron Notebook to help Jonathan continue his incredible work.

We can't wait to hear some of the new beats he will be cooking up!

The Fresh on 947 team also decided to throw in a microphone and Fresh himself personally threw in a 1TB hard drive... because step one is to ALWAYS back-up your creative projects!

Every song I write is for Raelene.
