Blue Route Mall gives back this Women’s Day
Women’s Day in South Africa is dedicated to honouring women and the crucial role they play in our society – and this year Blue Route Mall will be continuing this important commitment with a campaign designed to give back to women and children in need.
This Women’s Month, Blue Route Mall will be taking action and standing up for women and vulnerable youth. In conjunction with the Blue Route Mall Trendsetters, the centre will be initiating and mobilising a social responsibility awareness campaign in order to draw attention to the cause, and to collect supplies for The Jones Safe House in Kommetjie. As a shelter for 15 abused women and children between the ages of 5 and 23, The Jones Safe House is a haven within the community – one doing incredible work for those in need, and one that deserves our support.
In order to collect the items that The Jones Safe House so desperately needs, such as toiletries, stationery, educational toys, games, and puzzles, Blue Route Mall will be encouraging all loyal shoppers to donate to the cause. Any and all contributions can be dropped off at the centre between 1 and 14 August, and all donations will be gratefully accepted and appreciated.
Further to this, Blue Route Mall will also be leading an awareness activation at the centre on Women’s Day itself – 9 August 2019, from 12pm to 2pm. With MC Mashao Seabela on the mic and The Voice SA contestant, Keanu Harker on vocals, the event will be a showcase of live music, entertainment, fun activities, audience participation, and prize giveaways. In addition, the event will also give Blue Route Mall shoppers the opportunity to support The Jones Safe House initiative, and to make donations of their own on the day.
Once the campaign ends on 14 August, Blue Route Mall will be giving all donations to The Jones Safe House in a formal handover at the end of August, along with those collected by the Blue Route Mall Trendsetters in their personal capacity.
Blue Route Mall and the Blue Route Mall Trendsetters look forward to being able to give back and support vulnerable women and children over Women’s Month, and we encourage our own community of shoppers to do the same. If you would like to make a donation, make sure you visit the centre between 1 and 14 August to drop off your contribution in the box located on the first floor near the food court. The more we can all work together to help each other, the brighter our country’s future will be.
Spread a little kindness with Blue Route Mall
At Blue Route Mall we love nothing more than being able to give back to the community. That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of our latest upliftment initiative – the Kindness Corner!
Available on a weekly basis, the objective of the Kindness Corner is to give registered NGOs and charities the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for their projects.
With a dedicated space set aside for it, the Kindness Corner will be open for participants to set up a small exhibition to raise awareness for their charity as well as sell products (with the exception of food and drink) in order to raise much-needed funds for their causes.
If you’re part of a registered NGO or charity and would like to participate in the Kindness Corner, simply complete an application form on the website or at the Guest Relations Desk (remembering to include your NGO number) and submit it for review. If your application is approved, you’ll be able to install your exhibition within the Kindness Corner, and raise awareness and funds for your cause during our regular trading hours.
Join us in spreading a little kindness throughout Blue Route Mall and beyond!
