From the Desk of EventZee – EventZee celebrates.
Today we are officially one week old (young?) today, and now is the perfect time for you to learn about EventZee’s background!
The seeds for EventZee came about one evening, while I was pregnant with our son, this would be just over 2 years ago. I’m a research kind of mommy, meaning I researched just about everything from nappies and birthing options through to schooling options (Some might call this OCD, I call it being thorough J)
What I found is that I wasn’t finding everything I wanted! I wanted unique options of clothing for my baby, I wanted fun ways to announce our pregnancy, I wanted special gifts and if I did find something the prices were ridiculous or I had to import them and pay taxes etc.
So one evening I decided to put my ideas onto paper and EventZee’s growth began. All new parents though will know that once your baba arrives there is no time! Between working for a living, nappies, burping, feeding etc. there wasn’t an opportunity to do any more with EventZee and so the papers were packed away.
And then… the world turned topsy turvy, we were suddenly in the middle of a world-wide pandemic and South Africa went into lockdown. I run/ran a successful travel business and with all travel banned, my income went away as soon as the last International flight left South Africa. My husband was not considered an essential worker and we had to make do with a UIF payment – not nearly covering any of our costs. After the initial shock of our household suddenly no longer having an income to sustain us, our survival instincts kicked in and we decided that even though we had been knocked down to the ground, we would stand up and fight. We decided to turn these events into a positive and look at the lockdown time as an opportunity to get EventZee finally off the ground. My husband turned his passions into reality and EventZee Adventures was born! The papers were found, the dust was blown off them, the website was designed, products prepared and many late nights later, here we are at our one-week birthday J
