CHRISTMAS is a time of giving; giving to a cause that can help the many abandoned and stray animals that get left and forgotten about. That is why the Kloof and Highway SPCA started the Reverse Advent Box campaign.

Kloof and Highway SPCA marketing and fundraising spokesperson Brigitte Ferguson explained that the Reverse Advent Box campaign aims to encourage people to donate their unwanted/unused household goods, linen, curtains, and clothes which they will be able to sell in their various thrift stores to generate much needed funds during the very busy festive season.

“Think of all the things you do not use any more; the teddy bear at the bottom of the toy box, the shirt that no longer fits and the pots and pans that have been replaced by the shiny new ones,” she said.

She said that it’s not the SPCA that’s going to benefit, rather the unwanted and stray animals in their care, saying: “We have tons of animals at our Inspectorate department which we assist every day and in fact it benefits our fight against animal cruelty.”

“We encourage everyone to be a part of our Reverse Advent Box campaign. We also felt it would be a good-way for children to learn to give back and not just receive,” she added.

In conclusion, Ferguson encouraged the public to make their Christmas count, not because they received their 100th bar of soap, but because they touched an animal’s life. “The Kloof and Highway SPCA are here for the animals and you can be too by collecting your box and making your unwanted goods count,” she said.
