Mint participates in M-Net Cares Drive for the Cause Campaign
You may have already seen the exciting news that Mint is now a proud co-sponsor of the M-Net Cares “Drive for the Cause” campaign, in association with Liberty Medical Scheme. If you are not aware of Mint’s involvement, please take a few moments of your time to read the email below. If you are aware, please skip to the paragraph where we are asking for your support of this campaign to help us and the other sponsors reach the target of R1Million for the Naledi Children’s Literacy Programme and Pink Drive Campaign (for Breast Cancer awareness).
The M-Net Cares “Drive for the Cause” campaign has committed to uplifting the community through a number of M-Net Cares initiatives. The Drive for the Cause Campaign is one such initiative. The
Drive for the Cause Campaign will continue to support the two benefactors from 2011, namely the M-Net Naledi Children’s Literacy Project and the Pink Drive Breast Cancer Awareness.
The M-Net Naledi Children’s Literacy Project was chosen based on the premise that education is a vital element for any society to thrive and develop and also to grow tomorrow’s leaders. In 2010 and 2011, 1300 children from previously disadvantaged homes were taught to read and write, and in 2012 sights have been set on helping 1500 children to learn to read and write, a core fundamental skill for any human being to acquire. In addition they have also included young learners with special learning needs by extending the programme to a school for the deaf in the Eastern Cape. As part of the M-Net Naledi Project, they have also embarked on revamping libraries in under-resourced school.
The PinkDrive is the second chosen benefactor as early detection can save lives, with 1 in every 26 women diagnosed with breast cancer. Last year, the proceeds of the Drive for the Cause Campaign enabled two Mobile Breast Cancer Units to visit rural areas and educate over 57 000 women on the importance of early detection. A total of 3 000 mammograms and 24 000 clinical breast examinations have been done to date, free of charge thanks to the funds that have been raised through this campaign.
The Cloud9Golf Team who are driving this campaign, pledge that 2012 will be bigger, better and more fun and encourage all corporates and individuals alike to “play golf, spread the message and Drive for the Cause”.
There will be 23 event that will take place throughout the year to raise funds and include golf clinics, golf days and family days which culminate in the National Finals taking place on 21st November 2012.
Mint is proud to be a co-sponsor of these events, and have pledged our support of these very worthy campaigns. Our Mint.Unity Community initiatives have already started to make a significant positive impact on the community, so it makes sense for us to support two additional causes. Mint will be represented at all of these events, and will also be participating in the flagship Golf Days. We believe that playing golf is a great way to know potential and current customers better, and to create business opportunities and we extend this opportunity to you. For only R2800 per four-ball (R700 per player) not only be making a contribution to the “Drive for the Cause” campaign, but will be creating an opportunity to spend quality time with those in your four-ball, and will have the chance to enter into super Lucky Draws to win awesome prizes.
