“Unity is the key to overcoming this epidemic. As we have close relationships with both the National Department of Health, local departments of Health and the Academic Hospitals, we are also receiving requests for assistance for theatre scrubs for staff coming to the hospital to prevent infection, additional masks and equipment, Lubner continues by considering what would the wisdom of Madiba be in these times . He would want us to be “responsibly kind.”

Take precaution for yourselves but help others. Only through working in support of one another can we overcome! Let’s acknowledge and thank the healthcare workers who put themselves at risk to care for us all! Whether this virus decimates our people or acts as the unification we South Africans want and help is up to us!”

Hedley Lewis, CEO of Smile Foundation, comments: "Smile Foundation would like to extend a huge thanks to Tixsa for partnering with us on this crucial campaign as well as many other campaigns to impact the lives of South Africans in order to uplift their lives. The Tixsa facility is a highly reputable and highly recommended online facility that has evolved into being a platform used for the NGO world to support their needs."

As you can see your support is more important than ever, and we urge you to consider your assistance to both our foundation and those on the frontline. This is the moment when humanity needs to unite, a moment when our country needs to unite, a moment when your contribution will have the greatest impact. We support and salute all doctors, nurses and care workers on the frontline of South Africa’s battle against coronavirus.

4 Ways to Generate Event Revenue Year-Round

 By David Kennedy

Even if your next event is not yet on the horison, there are other sources of revenue to explore beyond just ticket sales. Our event experts have spent years working alongside the organisers behind some of the world’s most iconic comic cons, gaming expos, and anime conventions, fun runs, fundraising events and we’ve tapped into that experience to bring you four additional sources of revenue you can explore. Read on, and put our tips to work today!


Drive revenue and turn your fans into year-round brand ambassadors by offering event-branded merchandise like t-shirts, lanyards, hats, and limited-edition exclusives. You’ll be providing your customers with a keepsake to express support for your event while also keeping your next gathering top of mind and exposing their friends and family to your brand. Consider releasing throwback merch commemorating past events to really bring out their nostalgia!

Fan Club Memberships

Many of your event’s devoted attendees likely already consider themselves super-fans; why not seize the opportunity to let them show it? A fan club membership is a great way to not only boost your bottom line, but also thrill your event’s biggest supporters with exclusive perks like advance access to future ticket presales, early alerts to lineup announcements, and exclusive online content like virtual panels and celebrity Q&A sessions. Existing Tixsa partners can tap into our Segments tool to identify loyal attendees and encourage fan club signs ups quickly and easily!


Even if your next event is months away, sponsorships can be a lucrative source of ancillary income. Offer light display ad placement in your email newsletters, paid posts on Facebook and Instagram, display ads on your event’s website, and even push notification ads in your event’s official mobile app. Your engaged, devoted audience represents a great chance for your sponsors to make valuable connections; it’s up to you to encourage them to do so!

Live Stream Celebrity Panels or Q&A Sessions

If extenuating circumstances put the date of your next fandom event into question, a great way to keep your fans engaged and continue to generate revenue is by working with your celebrity guests to provide paid-access panels, meet & greets, or Q&A sessions. By live streaming this exclusive content and providing a platform for fans to directly interact with their favorite celebrities, you’re simultaneously providing your audience with a taste of what your full, in-person event has to offer, while also harnessing another source of revenue you may have been missing. Tixsa’s platform is ready to handle your paid viewings for your live streaming platform of your choice.
