BRAND IQ CARES

BRAND IQ & WETNOSE SPREADS THE LOVE

Every cloud has a Silver Lining. Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre is a registered “right to life” organisation that is involved in the rehabilitation of abandoned, neglected and abused animals. Animals in their care are not put to sleep, they stay with them until they can get a new home. Once rehabilitated these animals are available for adoption into new loving homes. They give dogs, cats and horses a safe refuge until a loving new home can be found or reunited them with their worried owners.

Many of the animals at Wet Nose have been hurt by their experiences, so they often have to spend time helping them overcome problems they’ve developed as a result of abuse. Brand IQ has great respect for the effort and time these outstanding poeple put into the fragile lifes of these little creatures. We support Wetnose and help where we can. Let’s all stop for a second and appreciate what life has to offer and in return give little…

You can’t buy love, but you can adopt it!

BRAND IQ FEEDS A CHILD

Feed a Child’s mission is to provide a nourished meal to children from any culture or ethical group, whose circumstances beyond their control, placed them on or below the poverty line. The Feed a Child team work for the people who have the need to make a difference. Together we strive to bring some hope to the children in need, building a vision of a brighter future.

One in ten children suffers from severe malnutrition and dies within the first 12 months of life. More than 1 in 5 are physically underdeveloped due to malnutrition. The consequences of malnutrition are severe and include growth stunting, anaemia, decreased learning capacity and weakened immune system. On average one child dies every 5 seconds as a result of malnutrition.

Brand IQ has Partnered up with Feed a Child to spread awareness and get people to notice that no matter who you are… your R2.50 can save a life!

BRAND IQ LENDS A HELPING HAND

Tswelopele SA

Companies are getting more involved in corporate social responsibilities committing themselves to behave ethical and contribute to improving the quality of life of their workforce, local community and society. This is where Brand IQ stepped up and addressed the issue of their environmental en social responsibility. We identified a mutual beneficial link between the local community’s needs and recyclable material used in the outdoor advertising industry.

Brand IQ partnered with an organisation called Tswelopele SA to donate our previous-campaign banners to. Tswelopele SA is an organisation dedicated to finding solutions to the problems of urbanisation, rampant poverty and homelessness. They aim to empower individuals and communities to become active participants in their own upliftment. At Tswelopele they believe that true upliftment is not achieved by recognising a man’s weaknesses, but by helping him to realise his strengths. Exactly the kind of vision Brand IQ embraces and strive to build our foundation on.

Brand IQ is proud to have been in the position to empower people who have the skills but not the support, to be able to, in some small way, better someone’s day. If it be enabling a person to have a haven for his family; protect them from the elements, a roof, warmth or just to keep dry; build a business and become an entrepreneur, we will endeavour to try and help our friends in need. In this way Brand IQ has found a responsible way to recycle its PVC Banners in a practical and environmentally friendly way.

If you would like to become involved with Tswelopele SA, there are many ways to do so. Financial contributions are always welcome, but “donations in kind” is also a big gesture. Visit www.tswelopele-sa.org.za to get more information about this organization as well as how you can get involved.


AID IN THE SURVIVAL OF THIS SPECIES!

Bambelela is a privately owned and operated wildlife rehabilitation and conservation farm in the Waterberg district. It is well known and especially well regarded for its exceptional work with Vervet monkeys. Bambelela offers a volunteer programme and Field Guide Assosiation of Southern Africa [FGASA] based courses for theory and practical studies.

Vervet monkeys are one of South Africa’s five indigenous primates. The other four are the lesser bushbaby, the thick-tailed bushbaby, the samango monkey, and the chacma baboon. Vervet monkeys are classified as “old world monkeys”, meaning that they have been around for over 65 million years – long before apes and humans.

Brand IQ donated old campaign banners to Bambelela to close of parts of the monkey enclosures. This enabled the little critters to have some shade and a dry spot during rainstorms.
