It was a close call between two paw pal charities – with only 12 nominations separating the top two – but in the end the Tears animal rescue organisation in Sunnydale came out tops.

The People’s Post team will visit Tears today to hand over donations received in the #We(heart)Post “Love is a four-legged word” charity campaign.

And with a successful February campaign behind us, we now turn our focus to human rights and the plight of the homeless for our special March campaign.

March: Human rights month.

In celebration of Human Rights Day (Tuesday 21 March), we at People’s Post, in partnership with our sister publications TygerBurger and City Vision, have decided to turn the whole month of March into our own human rights month.

All of us have socks, scarves, an extra beanie, umbrella, blanket, coat or jersey lying around in a cupboard somewhere, right?

So, all we have to do this month is to clean out our closets in aid of organisations that help people living on the streets of Cape Town.

When the first nippy fingers of winter start making their appearance, Capetonians with and without a roof over their heads will stay snug and warm.

At the end of the month we will be giving these donations – responsibly – to these local organisations, as nominated into the top spots by you, our readers. We eagerly await your nomination at post@peoplespost.co.za.

We will help rid you of all your pre-loved clean, untorn, whole and still decent clothing and shoes (so no missing buttons or zips or holes please) and we’ll even collect it from your doorstep when we’re in the area. Just let us know where.

Also look out for our boxes of kindness at the events People’s Post participates in this month, such as the Local is Lekker Music Festival at Vangate Mall (with the top 20 performances on Saturday 11 March and the music festival on Saturday 25 March) and Cape Town Carnival on Saturday 18 March.

Remember: Don’t just nominate, pak jou kas uit.

Collection points include our offices at 112 Edward Street in Bellville and the Vangate Mall centre management office.
