Frogfoot partners with 21 charities to launch 2023 National Blanket Drive
In the build up to Nelson Mandela Day, Frogfoot Networks, a licensed open-access fibre infrastructure provider, has partnered with 19 non-governmental organisations to launch its National Blanket Drive. Starting on 18 July, the initiative aims to foster community wellness and promote a sense of warmth and care within local communities – and Frogfoot is calling on everyone to join in.
To maximise the campaign’s reach and effectiveness, Frogfoot’s Activations team has collaborated with reputable local charities that have a proven track record in community welfare. These charities will receive the donated blankets and distribute them to those who need them most, ensuring the resources are allocated efficiently and responsibly.
As part of this nationwide initiative, which runs from 18 to 28 July, Frogfoot has carefully selected drop-off locations across the country to make it convenient for individuals, businesses and community organisations to contribute to the cause. Contributions of all sizes are welcome and encouraged as every blanket donated will make a difference in someone’s life.
“The National Blanket Drive reflects Frogfoot’s commitment to making a positive impact beyond providing superior connectivity. With the onset of colder months, the campaign seeks to address the pressing needs of vulnerable individuals and families, ensuring they have the necessary warmth and comfort during challenging times,” says Miranda Du Preez, Head of Brand Activations at Frogfoot.
‘’We believe in the power of community and the importance of taking care of one another. By joining forces with our customers, employees, and partnering charities, we aim to make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.”
The company is also encouraging the public to spread awareness about the National Blanket Drive through social media, using the hashtag #Spreadwarmth. By sharing their participation, people can inspire others to get involved and make a meaningful impact on their communities.
