Animal welfare organisations took to social media last week to rally support for themselves in the #WeKPost charity campaign.

And for some this strategy proves to be working as Tears Animal Rescue barked their way straight to the top of the nominations list overnight. In second place it is tie between Animal Rescue Team and Mitchell’s Plain Animal Welfare.

During the month of February People’s Post is calling on all our readers to nominate an animal charity – fitting our theme for the month, “Love is a four legged word” – and then, most importantly, donate to our cause.

The deadline for both nominations and donations is Sunday 26 February, after which the team from People’s Post will officially hand over the donations – and spend some time with our furry friends – to the charity that received the most nominations.

This month’s drive is just the first leg of our year-long charity drive, #WeKPost, through which we will try to make a tangible difference in the lives of the vulnerable in our communities. Our team of reporters, advertising representatives, administrative staff and management, as well as the staff of our sister publications TygerBurger and City Vision, are working together to help a different worthy charity every month. And it’s all paws on board with staff pledging and challenging each other to donate.

Until 26 February, readers can also donate dog and cat food, blankets, litter, animal toys, tick and flea products – anything animal-related.

Drop off your donation for our four-legged friends at our office on the 3rd floor of the Bloemhof building at 112 Edward Street in Bellville, at Vangate Mall’s centre management office or Smile 90.4 FM’s office in Green Point. And if these are still too far to drive, donations via Takelot are welcome or give us a call 021 910 6500 to make alternative arrangements.

Nominate your paw pal charity by emailing post@­peoples­post.­co.za or by commenting on the #WeKPost post at the top of our Facebook page.

Join us to make our community a little better – one month, one organisation at a time. Every bit counts.
