What's been happening and what to look out for!
Hungry Lion recently took close to 20 journalists and media professionals on a one-of-a-kind tour of Johannesburg to launch its Spot the Lucky Bucket competition, as well as to relaunch the brand’s image. With R100 000 up for grabs, the Spot the Lucky Bucket competition, which ran until October 31, needed a big splash to grab the public’s attention. And that goal was easily achieved by putting the media on the back of a fleet of growling Harley Davidson motorcycles, ridden by experienced bikers from Harley Davidson Chauffeur Rides.
TinCan PR made sure the tour caught the eye of every passer-by as the group made their way from the Harley Davidson Clearwater franchise in Roodepoort to Soweto. Accompanied by Lucky Bucket, the Hungry Lion mascot, and with three vintage vehicles joining the procession, the group trawled the streets on their lean, mean, well-oiled machines to the Hungry Lion franchise in Protea Glen, where they received a resounding welcome from Hungry Lion staff and the public.
Hungry Lion is setting its sights on reaching further into urban and suburban areas, rebranding itself as an aspirational brand with street smarts. Watch the press for details!
For the past 22 years, Collect-a-Can has been doing far more than encouraging recycling cans in exchange for cash – Collect-a-Can has been giving underprivileged communities and informal collectors the chance to generate an income stream for themselves.
Through hard work and dedication, informal collectors have found they can provide for their families. “Thanks to Collect-a-Can, I get paid for the cans that I collect on a daily basis. This enables me to put food on the table for my family,” says Sello Nwana, a Mamelodi can collector.
Not only that, but in July, Collect-a-Can along with its partners – ReaderLympics, Biblionef, Molteno Institute for Language and Literacy, Pan Macmillan, Dainfern Valley Estate and Tshikovha Environmental and Communication Consultancy – collected about 3 000 books in its national Collect-a-Book drive. The aim was to create a reading revolution in five underprivileged schools: Zitha Primary School in Vanderbijlpark; Chuma Primary School in Khayelitsha, Cape Town; Khalipha Primary School in Umlazi, Durban; Boepakitso Primary School in Diepkloof, Johannesburg; and Bokamoso Primary School in Soshanguve, Pretoria. An added element of fun was the CanMan, who made surprise appearances at the schools, with boxes of donated books in exchange for cans the pupils had collected for recycling.
“The aim of the Collect-a-Book drive is to put books in the hands of learners and bring reading books to life, while making a lasting and memorable difference in schools,” says Zimasa Velaphi, public relations and marketing manager of Collect-a-Can.
