Besides creating awareness and raising funds, One Land Love It is convinced that collaboration is essential if we are to successfully move from caring to doing, which is why we use the hashtag #JointCustody. In the past two years Wayne, supported by his family, has cycled 8000kms joining 40 game parks around South Africa for rhino conservation initiatives.
Olli recognises that there are many people and companies that are keen to step up and get involved but don’t know how to do so. We present them with an opportunity to partner with us and believe that our record and commitment speaks for itself.
Our OLLI (One Land Love It) family keeps growing with individuals and companies partnering with us to bring about change in our conservation landscape. In the Eastern Cape, some of the companies that have partnered with Olli since our inception in 2015 include IT Design responsible for sponsoring our Webpage’s design and hosting, Graphic Vine assisting with designing our scroll and other graphic design related needs, Daltar sponsors all our printing, Glen Meyburgh of Imagio Productions is our videographer, Malcolm Ramsay puts together our promotional clips, Avis Van Rentals supported us with a vehicle on each expedition and The Boardwalk Sun assisted when we needed a venue. Gareth Burley steps in as MC at our functions and Claire Venn is our entertainer. Client Care and NMBT are committed sponsors along with other local companies including Clover, SAVVIC, Vodacom and Lalibela and Kariega Game Parks. For Creative Use Only, Get Steve, Kingfisher FM and other local media have given us airtime and exposure without which we wouldn’t have been able to achieve our goal of creating awareness.
Together we have incredible resources and capacity.
A recent partnership in the Eastern Cape saw Havilah Jewellers using their resources to make a difference to conservation. They have designed the Heartbeat of Africa Collection to assist with raising funds. For each item purchased a percentage will be donated to conservation through OLLI and the range along with other OLLI merchandise can be purchased through the OLLI Shop on our website. Our latest partner is Fastway Couriers who are giving us a wonderful discount which means that we can raise even more for our beneficiaries. We recently celebrated this new partnership at Fastway’s PE premises with Fastway Staff along with OLLI (our fibreglass rhino) and the 5 directors in our newly formed NPC.
“Fastway Couriers are proud to be a part of the conservation of our precious rhino and to help spread the word and awareness. Every hand helps, every heart beats, together we can!” said Timothy Villinger from the Fastway Team
