Fund raising for SANParks

Unread postby Bosvelder » Wed Aug 08, 2007 10:35 am

The Bushveld region HR's have launched an SMS competition to raise funds for various projects, main ones being new doors to the Elephant hall in Letaba Rest Camp, and our Swannie fund. SMS the word "SANPARKS" to 36595, donate some money to Conservation and stand a chance to win two fabulous nights for 4 people in Mopanie rest camp, including a game drive and a morning walk. SMS charged at R5 and closing date is 31 October 2007.:D

Hi Bosvelder,

Always good to see modern technology being used to promote conservation issues. Can you tell the readers more about the main projects, so they know where their sms's are going to?

Cheers

Forumites - I challenge you all to each send two sms's to the number above!

My two are sent - who is next?

(@ Bosvelder, This might be a stupid question :redface: - but does this number serve for people living outside SA, or is it only a local number?) :redface:

No Deebs, I too was wondering that :? might cost more than R5, though.
