Value of giving: Little kids raise funds for animal anti cruelty

Grade 0 learners from Mondeor Community School and Jessica Janse van Rensburg (Miss Earth semi-finalist) collected pet food, blankets and toys for The Animal Anti Cruelty League.

MONDEOR – In an effort to entrench the value of giving in Grade 0 learners of Mondeor Community School, a fundraiser was hosted with the help of Miss Earth semi-finalist Jessica Janse van Rensburg.

As part of their current theme “Pets”, the learners and Jessica collected pet food, blankets and toys for the Animal Anti Cruelty League.

The learners managed to collect two cat litter trays, 40 cans of pet food, two blankets, 11 packets of dry pet food, one feeding bowl, assorted cat toys, cat nip and 12 sachets of pet food.

Jessica said: “The wonderful staff and families of Mondeor Community School helped me collect an overwhelming amount of food, toys and other goods for the Animal Anti-Cruelty League, Johannesburg. It was really wonderful to use this as a learning experience for the children. A huge thanks to everyone at this wonderful little school, especially principal Janine Yoslow Hall.”

“On Tuesday, I collected the goods and paid a visit to the league ,where I was welcomed with open arms. I will still be collecting goods for this cause because, despite this large donation, the animals always need food, blankets and toys,” said Jessica.

Heather Cowie of the Animal Anti Cruelty League said: “Jessica arrived with her mother Janet this morning and we could not believe the size of the donation that spilled out of their car’s boot. Their friends and family had also kindly added contributions, which resulted in our receiving all types of super pet goodies. Big thanks to Jessica, the Mondeor Community School and everyone else concerned, for this wonderful donation. Your support is very much appreciated.”
