We at people magazine have been in a termoil of emotions the last few weeks with the xenophobic attacks – we are all crying for our beloved country. As if the loadshedding issues and crime increasing wasn’t enough, we are now faced with the most violent attacks since Apartheid. The latest xenophobic attacks have left us both angry and sad that humanity can continue to treat itself in this manner. People are being attacked and savagely killed, while others are left fearing for their lives. They’ve lost their homes and businesses which they have worked hard for – contrary to what many may think, they haven’t just been given to them – and they are now fleeing to go back to their countries. We have an absolutely stunning country and all most of us want is to just live a peaceful life. This week, we take a look at what has been going on in South Africa. Our streets are a scary place to be at the moment, as you can see by the pictures on these pages.

On a lighter note, though – it’s Matric farewell season already. They’ve only been back at school for four months but they’re already planning and getting excited. In my day (yes – I am going back quite a few years!), we had our dance towards the end of the year, after exams, and it didn’t cost parents nearly as much as it does today. The Grade 11s would raise funds throughout the year to help cover the costs and we had our dance in the school hall. Sure, it wasn’t the most glamorous, but there was just no way a Matric farewell would be held in a fancy hotel! Listening to the stories about the dances today, however, it seems there is so much more to a Matric dance than just a night out in the school hall. In some schools you actually have to be invited, and for most Matrics it has become the most memorable night of their school career. So if you’re looking forward to the greatest of all school nights, we’re here to help you pick the perfect dress and look just fabulous from head to toe – turn to pages 27-38 for your Matric farewell edition. Now all you have to do is choose your lucky date!

Johansson, Renner fight hunger

Johansson, Renner fight hunger
Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner have both starred in public service announcements for Feeding America, a charity devoted to ending child hunger.

Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner are campaigning for an end to child hunger.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron stars portray superheroes in the forthcoming Marvel flick. And they have now put their star power to good use by starring in public service announcements for charity Feeding America, an organisation committed to ending hunger.

"My family grew up relying on public assistance to help provide meals for our family," Scarlett told People magazine. "Child hunger in America is a real and often overlooked problem, but one that together, we can fix. It is my hope that by joining with Feeding America, our awareness of this issue will lead to a solution."

The stars’ commercials are about 30 seconds in length and they both addresses key issues in the fight to keep Americans well-fed.

They noted in the promos that billions of pounds of food gets wasted every year.

Scarlett is mother to seven-month-old daughter Rose Dorothy and Jeremy is father to two-year-old daughter Ava.

And he can’t bare to see any child starve.

"As an American, it's hard to hear that we have a serious hunger problem in America," Jeremy said in the PSA, which is part of the Ad Council’s Hunger Prevention campaign. "And as a parent, it's even harder to hear that one in five kids struggles with hunger."

Feeding America is the leading hunger-relief charity in the United States, as it provides meals to over 46 million people via 60,000 food pantries and other programmes in the country. © Cover Media
