Graphix Supply World (GSW) feels passionately about the fight to save our rhinos and has committed their support to Outraged Citizens Against Rhino Poaching (OSCAP) and several other organisations leading the battle.
OSCAP is a non-profit organisation that undertakes various initiatives to raise worldwide awareness of the rhino poaching crisis. Graphix Supply World is printing stickers and licence discs to aid OSCAP’s fundraising. Seven-year-old Alyssa Carter was named a SANParks Rhino Champion as she sprung into action to raise money in aid of anti-poaching efforts to ensure that rhinos survive for the next generation. She started off in 2013 making and selling chocolates and has raised an impressive amount of money. All money is donated to the SANParks Honorary Rangers, a group of volunteers active in the Kruger National Park.
Alyssa’s first project is to raise the R100 000 necessary to purchase and sustain a sniffer dog for gate security. GSW will assist her by printing merchandise such as key rings, T-shirts, caps, rulers, posters, stickers, cellphone covers all with her gorgeous logo. She and other young volunteers will sell these items to raise more money.
Robert Franco, Managing Director of GSW said, ‘We are very strong believers of the ‘Save Our Rhinos’ campaign and we feel that everybody in South Africa should make a big effort to contribute to this worthy cause as we have been able to work together with various foundations to help protected our endangered Rhinos. The legendary example set by Alyssa Carter to raise over a R100 000 to save the Rhinos is a testimony that if a little girl can do this then the rest of us should make an effort to raise a million rand together. It’s time that everyone makes an effort to save our rhinos.’
