This year, I decided to approach Black Friday from a unique angle: I wanted it all to have some meaning! Therefore, I donated 10% of my November sales (both from my online shop and the Kirstenbosch Craft Market on 28 Nov) to the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds.
I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone that shopped, shared and sent a good thought my way during the month of November. Together, we raised just over R1100 for SANCCOB!
I look forward to growing this tradition of giving back in my business, and will certainly call on my followers to play a more proactive roll in selecting next year's NPO. Watch this space!
Apart from their work with the endangered African penguin, SANCCOB aims to reverse the decline of a variety of other seabirds, and is internationally recognised as the leader in oiled wildlife response, rehabilitation and chick-rearing. Go read more about this non-profit's full scope of work here.
