Imagine a day without water – The Flight Centre Foundation will be conducting a Cape Town water collection initiative at the Travel Expo at Johannesburg’s TicketPro Dome on 10-11 February 2018.
For every 5l bottle of water donated at the event, donors will receive an entry into a competition that could see one lucky person winning a Mediterranean Cruise for two to the value of R70 000*
The Travel Expo is expecting 25,000 visitors to this year’s show, so if the initiative is successful, it could result in 125 000 liters of water for the Cape Town cause.
Flight Centre Foundation will be working in partnership with Gift of the Givers, which will station a truck at the show to transport and distribute the donated water in Cape Town.
The initiative forms part of the Flight Centre Travel Group’s (FCTG) wider campaign to help create awareness of the severe drought in Cape Town and encourage water-wise behaviour among all travellers visiting the Mother City.
Andrew Stark, Flight Centre Travel Group MD, says: “We are devastated to see the impact of the drought on Cape Town. As a member of the travel industry which conducts business in Cape Town, we feel compelled to join the effort to create awareness around how to save water and initiate water-saving campaigns such as our water collection competition at Travel Expo so in some small way, we are helping alleviate the intense pressure Cape Town and its citizens are currently experiencing.”
Make sure you visit the Travel Expo with your 5l water donation between 09h00 - 17h00 on Saturday and 09h00 - 16h00 on Sunday and be part of the water donation initiative
