You all should be aware that National Braai Day (Heritage Day) is on the 24 September and as has become tradition, South Africans will celebrate our rich heritage by getting together around a braai with friends and family having a chop and a dop. The spirit of togetherness is what it’s about and how’s this for an awesome initiative from the folks at Savanna Cider who have come to the braai with a ton of meat. And when i say a ton of meat i mean literally a ton of meat. Savanna will donate one ton of meat to FoodBank, a non-profit organisation that distributes food to NGO’s nationwide and you can show your support by taking part in their very clever Adopt A Chop initiative.
You see..“chops aren’t just pieces of meat… they also have dreams. On National Braai Day, Savanna want South Africans to spare a thought for the less-fortunate and the brave little chops that are going to help feed South Africans in need.”
Lank simple…you go to the Savanna Facebook page HERE, and click on the Adopt A Chop button. Go through the galleries and profiles and adopt your favourite piece of meat. Post the news of your adoption to your wall and tell folks on twitter that you’ve taken part in #AdoptAChop. You’ll get updated on the status of your adopted chop while it goes through the marinating process and then on National Braai Day your chop will go to someone less fortunate.
Once the poster chops all have homes, Savanna will deliver one ton of meat to FoodBank to ensure that many South Africans in need will enjoy this coming National Braai Day. To celebrate the grilling of the meat, South African’s are invited to Hamilton’s Rugby Club in Greenpoint HERE on the 24September with Savanna on their big day out, braai some tasty chops which once cooked will be handed over to FoodBank SA.
“The main purpose for this initiative is to give back to South Africans who are in need and what better day to do this than Heritage Day (Braai Day), a day for remembering our cultural heritage with a truly proudly South African brand, Savanna,”
Great stuff…now get in there and Adopt A Chop and lets see the good folks at Savanna deliver that ton of meat.
