1. It is a scary thought that in a few years’ time we might no longer have a rhino species to appreciate. We are currently facing the reality that is the Big 4.
Not everyone can afford to donate thousands of rands to this worthy cause, however if we all contribute what we can and raise awareness, together we can make a tangible difference.
One of the ways you can play your part is to purchase a Relate Endangered Wildlife Trust Cheetah, Wild dog, Dugong and Rhino Bracelet from participating CNA, Out of Africa, Indaba, African Origins and African Eco stores nationwide for R35.00 each, and in so doing support not only the Rhino, Cheetah, Dugong and Wild Dog, but also provide earnings and skills training for our bracelet-makers so that in time they may move beyond Relate to achieve their personal career goals. In this way, Relate’s Endangered Wildlife Trust bracelet range is not only a way for you to Wear The Change You Want To See, but also to create awareness about our endangered wildlife species – had you ever heard of a Dugong before this article?
2. Stack your Relate bracelets to make a statement and create awareness about the threat to our endangered wildlife, or share them with friends to spread our movement of change –conserving our endangered wildlife species for future generations and helping to develop our fellow South Africans in need of an opportunity.
3. There are a number of initiatives that claim to contribute to charity, however we urge you to look for signs of transparency. Only Relate bracelets are made to our unique social enterprise model that, as we like to say, is 100% for good. Our mark of absolute commitment to accountability and trust is our signature ‘R’ bead – there’s one on every Relate bracelet. It is the symbol that you can trust; the symbol that guarantees the bracelet you are wearing for change does just that.
