STAFF at the Uvongo SPCA are changing the concept of the “high five”. At the non-profit organisation, it’s no longer two people ”smacking’ hands together, but rather a strategy to gain loyal donors to contribute financially­ to its cash flow.

“If people donate R50 a month via debit order, it will help us get the much-needed funds for operation costs,” said SPCA manager, Michael Muller.

The SPCA needs an extra R300 000 a year to sustain the shelter.

“If 500 people supported this initiative every month, it would help us reach that goal,” he said.

Every three months, one lucky person will win R5 000, starting in December.

From December 2016 however, the prize money will be R50 000, which was donated to the SPCA.

“There’s also a fantastic rewards programme that supporters can benefit from. Local businesses have agreed to offer discounts and freebies to ‘High 5’ participants,” said Muller.

Each person will receive a High 5 card which they can present at participating businesses.

To join the programme, contact the SPCA on 039 312 0692 or cut out the debit order form from the Fever and drop it off at the Fever offices
