The Power of 2000 - My Birthday Wish!

The Power of 2000 - My Birthday Wish!

Personal message

Its my birthday on November 12th, and this year I'd love to celebrate by giving THE BEST GIFT EVER - fully settling the Pajero, driving up to The Black Mambas and gifting it to them!

They are in desperate need of a strong, reliable vehicle.  Every contribution of R100 gets you: 

Helping to save the rhino, helping The Black Mambas 

And!

An entry into my birthday raffle - an opportunity to win a range of amazing prizes from artworks to massages to other wonderful goodies.  This is a win-win-win. 

When people come together, anything can be achieved.  Together we can move mountains!  

Please help me celebrate my birthday in the most amazing way, and help the Black Mambas to continue their incredible work, and help our beautiful African Unicorn.

The car needs more stickers!  For contributions of R1000 and more, your company logo is placed on the vehicle, you get social media shout-outs, and video mentions for supporting this worthy cause.  

 

THE BACKSTORY TO THE POWER OF 2000:

The Power of 2000 is a project born from darkness transforming to light. From my personal journey of transforming a big burden into a huge opportunity to do good.

After a relationship ending and being left with a big vehicle that I could not afford and could not sell (that I had helped my partner to buy, both the vehicle and finance in my name) -  I came up with an idea – grounded in the vision that a small group of people can create big change.  That sometimes, we can’t do it alone, but when we come together, we can do so much more! 

The idea is that if 2000 people each contribute R100 ($10 / €10 / £5,) we can together settle the outstanding finance, put on a new set of tyres – and DONATE THE VEHICLE to a worthy anti poaching / conservation organisation who can use her to her full capacity!  Where she can do the work she was made to do, and make a REAL difference where it matters! The Power Of 2000 - small actions by 2000 people can produce a BIG result.

I am passionate about conserving our wildlife and have chosen The Black Mambas to be the recipient of this vehicle - warrior women empowering themselves to protect our precious rhino - who are in desperate need of a vehicle.  These women not only patrol and protect the rhino, they also educate local communities about the value of widlife and the importance of conservation.  With education and the support of local communities - so much more can be achieved.  

Since 2008, 7000 rhino were killed around the world.

1000 were killed in 2017 alone. 

3 die every day. 

I believe we are ALL part of the solution. 

The symbolism for the rhino is breaking through insurmountable obstacles, conquering barriers, and achieving your goal. Our biggest mistakes are our greatest gifts.  

Every person / company / school to contribute R1000 / R2 500 / R5 000 / R10 000 will receive stickers which will be placed on the vehicle to show your support!

Together we will change the world.
