December. The Silly Season. The time where people go crazy at the stores buying more stuff to clutter their lives. More stuff they don’t actually need. And those that need, go about this month oblivious to the amount of money spent at this time of the year on unnecessary material things.
One organisation that ensures the communities they care for are blessed and for one day could experience the joy of receiving something just for them. Here is a collage of a TLC Christmas Party – one of many they have for the community.
It is a wonderful feeling to give and exciting to receive but in my humble opinion, I think that the time has come to give meaningful gifts. Adopt a Penguin for your parents or a friend, or adopt an Elephant or a Rhino and the donation will go a long way in helping to save our Endangered Species. Pledge to raise funds for a Wildlife Conservation Project or an Orphanage. Send school supplies or clothing or books to Schools who badly need these items especially in South America, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Africa, South Africa. These are the gifts that could have a snowball effect on someone’s life or to the safety of Wildlife.
Pledge that a group of you will volunteer in 2016 and ask family and friends for money towards your trip. Volunteering will make such an enormous impact on your life and the communities and wildlife projects you are coming out to support.
So why not make a commitment in 2016 to volunteer with AVIVA Volunteers? Visit our website http://www.aviva-sa.com and complete a non-obligatory booking form for an opportunity of a lifetime.
