Yesterday Cape Town was under a dark winter cloud and Table mountain was almost not in sight,but strong winds did not put a stop to the collaboration of Rlabs, Vote for Table mountain and GivenGain Foundation
We were embarking on our journey to get people signed up as activists for the Vote for Table Mountain Campaign. Fiona Furey who managers the campaign had us all amazed as she presented to us the the riches and splendor of our beloved mountain. She quote that An independent impact report has predicted a R1.4-billion annual tourism bonanza for South Africa if Table Mountain is named one of the New7Wonders of Nature.Then the press had their share in the moment raising random questions about how the rest of South Africa can play their part in the campaign. Collin Habberton from GivenGain and Fiona handled that well.
The Rlabs team was there in full force signing people on the the GivenGain activist platform, and was proud to have The Legacy Program students Genevieve Davids, Megan Trican, Nadien
Bean, Rabia Adamson working with us. They were hands on and got the swing of social media surgery… and not forgetting entertaining the crowd with their vibrant personality’s.
We were disappointed that we could not go up the cable car, but still all went well and with much hope we all planing to get the masses to vote for Table Mountain!
