Third re*think campaign to benefit rhinos

2012-10-10 00:00

THE school with the best artwork made from recycled materials around the theme “re*think: Save Our Rhino” stand to win R10  000.

The re*think campaign is now in its third year. It encourages people to look in which of the “Big Five” areas of the environment they can make a difference — be it water, energy, biodiversity, waste and voluntary social change. The project, a Liberty Midlands Mall initiative, aims to inform and educate the community about the effects of the human footprint on the environment and to mobilising support for the future, by reducing, re-using and re-cycling waste.

“Making a significant difference and giving the 2012 campaign fresh impetus, Liberty Midlands is thrilled this year to have linked up with the Wildlife and Environment Society of SA (WESSA) and Project Rhino KZN, to further support the good work they are already doing and encourage increased support from our customers and tenants,” said Liberty Midlands Mall centre manager, Umi Khan.

The mall invited schools in and around Pietermaritzburg to submit paintings or sculptures made of recycled materials around the theme “Save Our Rhino”.

Entries will be voted for in the three categories, with cash prizes to the value of R30 000 from Liberty Midlands Mall.

The entries in each category will be displayed at Liberty Midlands Mall between October 18 to 21, with an independent panel of judges selecting the top five in each category on October 17.

The winning school in each category will receive R10 000 in cash. Contact Minoli Chetty on 033 341 9570 for more information, or mail or
