LOVE HOWICK BUSINESS PARTNERS PROGRAMME

Business is at the centre of development within a community, having a direct impact on the economic health and well-being of the citizens of the city, region and country in which such businesses are active.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is one of the basic preconditions for the successful functioning of a business. It’s a concept that reflects company values, and creates a brand that is not only about facts and figures, but people and purpose. As such, the CSR strategy has multiple effects and impacts companies on numerous levels.

A study shows that 55% of customers are willing to pay more for products from socially responsible companies. Another research reveals that employee turnover rate reduces by up to 50% when they are engaged in CSR programs. But these are not the only benefits of social responsibility. On the contrary, organisations with comprehensive CSR plans gain additional privileges such as:
• Enhanced public image: If you are committed to community upliftment, the public is going to acknowledge it and respect your company more than others, helping businesses to gain competitive advantage;
• More media coverage: Nothing can give a boost to your PR strategy as much as social responsibility. Media outlets love reporting about companies’ noble activities resulting in increased brand recognition;
• Attract investors: With all the benefits we mentioned above, it’s natural to realise that investors are likely to cooperate with socially responsible organisations.

We want to help you to build this socially responsible brand – and leave a legacy that brings lasting transformation to your local community. We invite you to join our Business Partners Programme by making a monthly contribution to the Love Howick NPC, and become a vital player in creating sustainable change.

SANTA SCHOOL BOX UPDATE

Thank you so much for all your generosity in our Santa School Box Campaign so far! We have been able to raise roughly R7 360 so far out of our R40 000 goal. That is roughly 40 stationary boxes and 40 students' lives that can be changed. Our goal is to bless 200 students with the kickstart many of them need to have a successful school year.

Proceeds of this campaign will be going to Yarrow Intermediate School, a farm school in the Karkloof. Yarrow is a no-fee paying government school that is home to not only Yarrow students but Gartmore Primary students too. Gartmore's premises got badly damaged in a storm in 2007 and Yarrow kindly took them in and have been sharing the property since. We love the heart and vision of this small school, and are so grateful for the opportunity to invest in the students who attend these two schools, with your help of course!

We are running this campaign until 25 January 2021, so there is still plenty of time to be part of this amazing campaign! We have drop-off points at:
- Greendale Superspar
- My SPAR - Merrivale
- My SPAR - Nottingham Road Spar & Tops
- Pick n Pay Howick at DJ's
- Pick n Pay at Fairways
- Pick n Pay St. Johns

You can also make a financial donation towards this campaign: each box costs R200. Please visit our website at www.lovehowick.com for all our banking details. Alternatively, email info@lovehowick.com for more information.

RECONCILIATION DAY 2020

Looking back on 2020 and everything this year held, it was nothing if not a massive opportunity for partnerships, collaboration, and real-life portraits of Ubuntu, in all areas.

Collaboration is simply ‘when a group of people come together and contribute their expertise for the benefit of a shared objective, project, or mission.’ It’s a photographer working with a designer to create a cover image, or a technology department regularly convening with the marketing team to plug away at quarterly goals, or in our case, when businesses, NPO’s and community members all work together to see a community transformed. As an organisation we passionately believe we are ‘better together’ and are actively seeking out partnerships will like-minded people (like you!) to see our vision of a ‘prosperous city’ realised.

Towards the end of Lockdown, we started a series on our Social Media called “Portraits of Courage”, where we told the many stories of how people’s lives were transformed through the various projects we are running. The hope of a prosperous future, the re-birth of dreams once lost, the tangible transformation of circumstances and mindsets we see walk through the doors of our organisation on a daily basis, have inspired us so much that we couldn’t keep these stories to ourselves.

These literal Portraits of Courage, of people getting sick and tired of being stuck in the same cycle of blame and excuses, and taking the first courageous step to change their futures, to step out of poverty and unemployment by investing in their futures, having people believe in them, seeing that spark in their eyes return to light a fire of hope.

We hope that today, you can see all the good, all the reborn hope and dreams, all the reconciliation we, as a nation, have fought so desperately for.

Happy Reconciliation Day!

REVAMPING OUR RENOVERGE PROJECT

Together, we can make Howick beautiful again! Help us keep this project going by making a monthly financial donation towards these monthly costs.

UPDATE: I'm sure you all have seen the Love Howick Renoverge Team in their red shirts around Howick, cleaning up, planting gardens and beautifying our town.

We decided a revamp of the way things are working was necessary to increase the reach of this project and inject some much needed income into our economy. We are now opening up the work to local, start-up landscaping and garden service businesses to give up and coming entrepreneurs the opportunity to gain some experience, much-needed exposure and take personal responsibility for cleaning up our areas .

This also allows us to cover more area as we can have a few different zones cleaned up and maintained at the same time.

Take a look at these amazing pictures that show just how well this new way of doing things is working out.

Email info@lovehowick.com or visit our website on www.lovehowick.com for more information.
