A team of more than 40 celebrities - including Steve Hofmeyr, Juanita du Plessis, Kurt Darren, PJ Powers, Loyiso Bala and Miss SA
Pledges ranged from only a few rand to a whopping R50 000, with calls from Gauteng, Mpumalanga, North West and Polokwane, totalling R1.5-million rand, which translates into 30 000 blankets.
Jacaranda FM’s marketing manager, Jenny Griesel, said after announcing the total: “Yet again we are absolutely overwhelmed by the giving spirit of our listeners and their generous contributions which, in some cases, make the difference between life and death. We wish to extend a heartfelt thanks to all involved in making the Winter Warmer Corporate Challenge 2012 a tremendous success. Especially our headline sponsor, Ingram’s, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible.”
The Jacaranda FM Winter Warmer campaign, in proud association with Ingram's, runs until the end of June. Vist www.jacarandafm.com for more information on how you can get involved.
