Out of Home specialists Relativ Media has recently made several charitable donations to causes in need:
Women of Vision
As a part of Relativ Media’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme, the company donated a brand new Suzuki Super vehicle to Woman Vision, a non-profit organisation that addresses high levels of gangsterism, violence and substance abuse within the local and surrounding community.
The donation was made in order to provide much needed aid to the Woman of Vision organisation in their daily tasks. The day was a huge success and an emotional one for many attending the handover.
Women of vision was formed on the 16th December 1996 by Sophie Okeke. The organisation runs many support projects within the local community and is a very worthy cause for donation. Relativ Media hopes that the new vehicle will aid in their vision of helping the local community.
Earlier in the year, Relativ Media donated 20 blankets and 30 towels to the Woodrock Foundation, who provide valuable assistance to neglected and unwanted animals. The foundation began in 1992 by Nicholas Estelle and is heavily involved within the local community by providing education relating to the humane treatment of animals. The foundation also feeds, spays and neuters animals in the community where necessary, and provides blankets and kennels where possible.
In February, Celebrating Life; a formal affair where guests were given the opportunity to give back, to converse and interact with a range of South Africa’s finest ambassadors for a great cause, was held at the Rand Club and attended by over 200 guests.
The event was inspired by the realisation by the Tucker Family that life is short and needs to be celebrated every day. Celebrating Life was held in partnership with the Rand Club. Founded in 1887 the magnificent clubhouse was the perfect venue for friends, family and loved ones to celebrate life. Some of the local legends attending the event included James Small, Mpumelo “Pommie” Mbangwa and guest speakers John Robbie and Joel Stranksy.
All proceeds earned from the night, through ticket sales and added donations have gone to the St. Mary’s Foundation and St. John’s Academy, supporting one of South Africa’s most dire causes – education. Guests had great enthusiasm and enjoyed speaking with local legends while donating to a worthy cause.
Relativ Media’s MD Brett Tucker is proud to be able to have made a difference to these charities and is excited at the prospect of doing more of the same in near future.
