Support The Endangered Wildlife Trust MyPlanet Rhino Fund

   

Many feel helpless as to what to do about the plight of our rhinos. However, MyPlanet have raised over a R1 million for the EWT Rhino Fund and the work they do to conserve rhinos.  We can all help by simply applying for a free MYPLANET CARD in aid of the EWT MYPLANET RHINO FUND.   The card won’t cost you a cent and each time you swipe the card at one of MyPlanet’s retail partners, like Woolworths, your transaction is recorded and a percentage is paid to the charity of your  choice. Click here to apply for a MyPlanet card and remember to select the EWT MyPlanet Fund.

It’s good to know that we can do something to save our rhinos
