To quote Nelson Mandela “ What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
In 2015, after input from our customers, we decided to forego end of year gifts. Rather, we gave our customers the option of selecting a charity organisation to which we, in turn, would donate the money we would have spent on year-end corporate gifts. We received a very positive feedback, which is why we decided to do it again in 2016.
PG Bison will allocate our entire ‘end-of-year gift’ budget to the charities listed below based on the votes from our customers. When we present the donation to the charities, we do acknowledge each of our customers that supported the charity.
The charities selected for 2016 included:
Red Cross (www.redcross.org.za)
Largest humanitarian movement, supporting people affected by natural disaster and conflict.
Stop Rhino Poaching (www.stoprhinopoaching.com)
An organisation focused on stopping the poaching pandemic facing rhinos in South Africa.
Smile Foundation (www.smilefoundationsa.org)
An organisation working together with the country’s academic hospitals to put a smile back on children’s faces with corrective facial reconstruction surgery and treatments.
The results were as follows:
Thank you to all our customers who took part in this initiative!
