Never ones to rest on their laurels, the NSRI has come up with even more ways for you to win while making a valuable contribution to their life-saving work.
“The one thing that has always made the NSRI fundraising platform different is that we were the first to hold high-value competitions,” says Janine van Stolk, Executive Director of Fundraising and Marketing for the NSRI. “In recent years, other organisations have followed suit.”
Win 4 cars in 2022
In previous years, the winner was given two cars and the runners up each received cash prizes through the organisation’s Annual Car Competition. This year, the four winners will all walk (well drive!) away with a brand-new Mitsubishi vehicle. The first prize winner will take home not one but two vehicles, namely a Mitsubishi Pajero Sport MY224X4 and Mitsubishi Xpander 1.5L. Second prize is a Mitsubishi Eclipse 2.0L CVT and third prize is a Mitsubishi ASX 2.0L.
“We just thought, why not convert all the prizes into cars? One of the most desirable things in this country is to become mobile,” Janine says. “We had wonderful negotiations with Mitsubishi and they agreed. It’s really cool as we always want to remain relevant and different.
“Another aspect of this is that vehicles are absolutely critical to the work that we do. Our volunteers often have to drive to very remote areas. Our fleet of rescue vehicles are all Mitsubishis and can run over some very challenging terrain. So this competition is an extension of that.”
Another change to the Car Competition’s format is that unlike in previous years, the big prize draw will not only be held in December. This year, one car will be given away in July and the rest of the winners will be drawn in December.
“We get our approval from the National Lottery competition and a limited number of tickets are allowed to be sold. This year the limit is 36 000. We are extremely rigorous with our processes and follow very strict protocols,” Janine says emphatically. “In the past, we would reach out to people telephonically. Now we are also using social media. Our new website also allows for direct payments via credit card, EFT or Snapscan, which makes things a lot easier.”
An affordable way to give
Another way you can win is through the NSRI’s Monthly Cash Draw. This has always been an extremely affordable way to support the NSRI, as tickets cost just R25. This is what one might spend on a cappuccino each month.
“We’ll be giving away R50 000 each month, so 5 people can each win R10 000. So it’s a lot of rewards going to our donors. This year, there will also be three big draws during the year. In April, August and December, R100 000 will be given away to three lucky donors,” Janine explains.
You can buy as many tickets as you like to improve your chances of winning and can choose to pay R25 monthly or make a R300 once-off annual donation.
