Thank you for registering to help TEARS on our Mandela Day Weekend. 

It is with great sadness that TEARS is being forced to make the difficult decision to cancel our Mandela Day volunteering opportunities. For your protection and for the protection of our staff and volunteers, TEARS is placing safety as our first priority.

Unfortunately, this is the second year in a row that we are losing our Mandela Day. It is only with the support of so many hands that we are able to accomplish our biggest improvement projects. While we aren’t able to have you come to volunteer this weekend, we will send you an email after the Level 4 Lockdown close to one of our Pimp My Shelter days in which we will tackle shelter improvements. Please join us then!

You can still support TEARS in honour of Madiba by giving to the TEARS Give Warmth Campaign. TEARS has actively been feeding pets in the low-income communities during the National Lockdown. It is thanks to donations of pet food, blankets and kennels that TEARS is able to build this into our Outreach Programme. Please donate to this cause. www.tears.org.za/give-warmth
