Why a Santa Shoebox is so much more than a box

Pledges for the annual Santa Shoebox Project opened on 1 September. And, this year marks the 10th birthday of an initiative that has become one of South Africa’s favourite ways to give over the festive season.

From a humble 180 shoeboxes donated in its first year, the Santa Shoebox Project has now notched up more than half a million thoughtful shoeboxes. These were donated to underprivileged children across South Africa and Namibia.


Books for Woofs Book Drive

The Mdzananda Animal Clinic is having our annual charity book sale at the Cavendish Square mall from the 25th – 28th August 2016. We are very low on books and would like to appeal to the public to donate books for our sale. We would greatly appreciate it if you could assist us in asking the public for help with book donations.


Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up

The weekend is finally here. And I’m so happy I stuck to healthy eating habits this past week. Smoothies, gym and light dinners. But it’s Friday and I feel like letting loose. After all, “all work and no play” right? Wrong.

It’s time for change. No drinks. No good food. I stop this break-the-rules cycle this weekend. This week has been about detox and if you missed out, then here’s your chance to catch up.


South Africa’s great white sharks heading for extinction

Only 353 to 522 great white sharks left in South African waters

The magnificent great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias L.) is one of the oldest shark lineages with an evolutionary origin dating back about 14 million years. New research from Stellenbosch University (SU) shows that the South African white shark population is in double jeopardy. Not only do these sharks have the lowest genetic diversity of all white shark populations worldwide; there are also only between 353 to 522 individuals left.
