A good friend of mine is launching a fantastic project called Acting Good and is appealing for funds. With your help she can make a difference to the way Capetonians interact with each other and with their city. Below is her email appeal — feel free to pass this post around.
I am starting a social project called “Acting Good” which will focus on education and good social behaviour regarding litter and pedestrian safety. I would like to do this in a fun and novel manner through the use of student actors and funny skits in the streets of the Cape Town CBD.
In order for me to run this project successfully, I require funding – R16 500 to be precise. I have approached corporates such as Shoprite, McDonalds, PnP and Woolworths (their packaging making a major contribution to litter) for sponsorship, to no avail.
The City of Cape Town Solid Waste Department is very excited about this project and it has potential to be utilised in other cities and areas if it is successful. The City will be collaborating with litter statistics over the 3 month period the project will be run in order to determine its success.
I appeal to you to please make a small contribution to the cause, to the environment, clean cities and to a sustainable anti-litter campaign. If you do make a donation, please be sure to put your name as a reference so that I can send a thank you note and update you on the project’s progress.
I have opened a savings account for this purpose:
Standard Bank Savings Account
Account Holder: Mireille Wenger
Account Number: 074852132

If you have any questions or would like to know more, I would be more than happy to supply this information and send you the full project proposal.
Thank you ever SOOOO much!
