For those of us who wish to give $$, equiptment, or any other imaginable items, could someone compile a Santa's SanParks Wishlist so we may make our donations as easily as possible? I know there are various projects in progress, but please compile and simplify all these worthy causes in one short list so we can choose wisely and not have to navigate all the possible choices. Cheers! Elaine

Hi Elaine.

I am speaking out of experience here, but unfortunately for any donations in a monetary form there has to be a project registered by Sanparks, and unfortunately this is not an easy thing and takes some time to set up. :wink:

I love your idea though and will support it.

The various projects in progress atm is of course the Ratpack fund raiser where the funds will go towards game ranger equipment but the project is not yet live on the website, then there is the current projects registered on www.givengain.com where the cybertracker, Kgalagadi waterhole project and Sanparks Cultural heritage project is available for donations (if you need more information on these projects, please PM a Mod).

There is also the HR's (honorary rangers) in each area where you can donate and they will ensure it is used towards Anti-Poaching, Fences, Cleaning projects etc, throughout the various parks. :)

Not 'unfortunately' - fortunately rather DD!!

SANParks have a very strict policy as far as receiving donations but this is because they practice good corporate governance.

For eg, I am sure you all remember the time some guys went around in shopping malls saying they were collecting for SANParks when they were in fact not! It is instances like this that SANParks wish to protect the public from. They want you to know that your donation will get to the intended project. To do this, there is red tape involved but you can know that everything is carefully audited :clap:

Link to GivenGain donations - should you wish to choose one of those causes as listed by DotDan. And as he said, the paperwork for the Ranger Equipment is presently being done and soon it will also be listed there.

The Ranger Equipment is for field ranger's in all the Parks. This is a result of the Rat Pack initiative - so thanks to these formites, the rangers will be getting much needed equipment very soon :clap: :clap:
