Now that I have successfully completed the New York Marathon I have to endeavour to complete my side of the bargain for being given a much sought-after entry into this leading world Marathon. T-Shirt Time! ZEF Fundraising account
We folks, living in Zimbabwe, are very fortunate to have access to National Parks, Rivers and specific areas that still have many different free-roaming wild animals. We can take a 5-hour drive to some of these wonderful destinations and share some quality time sharing the sight and sounds of a whole range of wildlife with our friends and, more importantly, with our families. Some seek out the Big Five whilst others are content with gazing at plains games such as Kudu, Eland and Giraffe. This is our heritage and we all need reminding that we all have to do our bit to ensure that the next generation can still have the same pleasure.
Over the course of the years, there have been many different individuals who have shown their true community spirit by helping set up bona fide organisations to help in this regard. The Zambezi Elephant Fund, run by James Egremont- Lee, is one such group of people. I know most of the management team personally and it was because I believe they are doing such a great job, that I ran the New York Marathon to raise awareness for their cause.
I have, thus had “Elephant” T-Shirts made (by TexColour) specifically for this purpose from small kids sizes all the way up to XL. We are selling these at our Softrite / Bambazonke offices in Newlands (37 Victoria Dr) for just a US$15 cash donation (or more!) that will be deposited directly into my ZEF Fundraising account. If you are not in a position to come into our offices and would like it delivered we can send a motorbike driver around to your home of offices in Harare. Similarly, if it is easier for you to just make a bank transfer to that account we can deliver the T-Shirt (s). It might be an idea, for example, to buy a mom and daughter combination or a set for your next family trip to Mana Pools!
