Local organisations such a Valemount, Sectional Title Solutions, Marie van Coller Attorneys and Acts House of Education all met the Midrand Reporter at the Midrand SPCA on Mandela Day, donating food for the animals, blankets, and other much­needed items.

Founder of Marie van Coller Attorneys, Marie van Coller said that the Midrand SPCA was dear to their hearts and after hearing of the recent robbery, they were heartbroken and felt it would be good to give back.

“We also thought it would be nice to come and spend some time with the animals and give out some treats.

“I want to encourage organisations and people in the area to come and see what is happening here, so they can help through donating the little they can and to adopt Midrand SPCA as their place of donating.”

Another person doing remarkable work through her organisation, Petra Laranjo from Just One Thing 365 explained that their non-profit company supports humans, animals and the planet.

Laranjo who organised a helping hand from Fibre Funding Solutions added, “We have a tribe of amazing volunteers that come to task anytime we put out a need and a plea. The reason why we supported the Midrand SPCA was really just because we heard how they were in desperate need as they do not have a big following and support.”

Just One Thing 365 chose to donate animal goodies, doughnuts, hats and T-shirts for the staff of the Midrand SPCA.

“I encourage people to donate by contacting their local SPCA or either going on to Google and typing ‘animal rescue’ and all the places will pop up, it is literally as easy as that.”

Laranjo concluded, “It takes just one thought, 365 days we have to make a difference.

“So, beyond Mandela Day and Mandela Month, let’s make doing good a lifestyle and a habit because that is really how we are going to change the world.”
