‘Schedule in’ a worthy cause
INITIATED in 2009, Compass Medical Waste Services’ corporate social investment arm, Compass Cares, is once again endeavouring to aid the Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) through the sale of 2018 calendars.
To date, Compass Cares has donated more than R1-million to CROW, whose main aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wildlife, as well as educate the public on the protection of our natural resources.
The proceeds from the Compass Cares CROW calendars are directly donated to the centre each year. Over the past seven years, these funds have helped CROW to upgrade their clinic facilities, purchase two “capture and release” vehicles, build a new antelope enclosure and, more recently, upgrade their baboon enclosure.
The limited edition Compass Cares A2 CROW 2018 African Kaleidoscope calendar can be purchased for R180. There is also a smaller CD-sized desk calendar, featuring the same stunning wildlife photos, that can be purchased for R50.
Compass Cares also produces a charity calendar for Durban-based non-profit organisation Cats of Durban.
Their sole purpose is to sterilise feral, stray and abandoned cats and to educate individuals and businesses on the benefits of a well-managed feral cat community.
The gift-boxed, A3 Cats of Durban 2018 Kitten Edition calendar costs R150, with all the funds raised through the project going towards the sterilisation of stray and feral cats, which costs about R500 per sterilisation.
For more information or to purchase a calendar, please contact Robyn Lentz at the Eastern Cape office on (043)685-2242 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
