MARTIN BESTER DRIVE’S GIVE KILI HORNS CAMPAIGN FOR JACARANDA FM’S PURPLE RHINO PROJECT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH STOPRHINOPOACHING.COM With R1 600 203.40 million in total, through pledges from corporate donations, telethon pledges from you the listener, and sms entries for our competition, Alex ‘Arod’ McMaster summited and returned safely from Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of the Purple Rhino project, driven solicitously by the Martin Bester Drive team’s, ‘Let’s give kili horns’ campaign. What began as an ambitious idea, culminated in large corporate sponsorships, medium to small en- terprises and empathetic listeners donating and raising substantial monies to aid in the fight against rhino poaching. After recieveing the initial amount of R150 000 from Sun City, taken from ticket sales for the Kings Of Chaos tour, the ‘Let’s give kili horns’ campaign, driven by the Martin Bester drive team quickly mobilized and snowballed other corporate sponsors to rally with this substantial donation to in- crease the total amount raised to over R1 million. The Martin Bester Drive team nominated their stuntman ‘Arod’ to trek up Kilimanjaro to plant a flag full of corporate sponsor logos. Corporates jumped at the opportunity to support the cause and get their logos onto the flag. Sun International and Clipper Sales donated R150 000 and R200 000 respectively. Babelela security and Praxos Industrial Sandblasting donated R100 000 each. Divil engineering, Quemic, Mantella trad- ing, Protea coin group, Inoxpa, Bridgestone SA, SupaQuick tyre experts, Demacon market studies, retail network services, Imperial select, Gunsite, Aon, Numatic and Crest information systems each donated R50 000 to the cause. Thanks also to ‘Outdoor Freedom’ for kitting up the team with the necessary and essential gear.
