MiX Telematics<http://www.mixtelematics.com/> (JSE: MIX, NYSE: MIXT) a leading global Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of connected fleet and mobile asset management solutions is pleased to announce that the National Council of SPCA’s (NSPCA<https://nspca.co.za/>) has been selected as the winner of the ‘Beame Win a Car for Charity’ competition. The public had the opportunity to nominate their favourite charity – one who contributes positively and plays an active role in their communities – with the winner receiving a 2019 Ford Figo 1.5 Ambiente Hatch.
Following an intensive vetting process, the NSPCA was chosen as the ultimate winner. This result was based on the wonderful work that this organisation does for animal welfare and the fact that they were the most widely nominated charity.
“We are very proud to announce the NSPCA as the winning non-profit organization and we commend the work that they do across South Africa to improve the lives of all animals – engendering compassion and respect for animals in the communities that they serve,” says Gert Pretorius, Executive Vice President and Managing Director at MiX Telematics, Africa.
“Not only will the organisation receive the Ford Figo but we will also ensure the car is covered with our Beame<https://www.beam-e.com/> stolen vehicle recovery service. In addition, the car is fitted with a Matrix<https://www.matrix.co.za/> tracking device, giving the NSPCA access to all the safety and security benefits that Matrix has to offer, for peace of mind while doing their great work around the country,” adds Pretorius.
“We have been in the business of loving and protecting animals for over 60 years, and it is overwhelming to see our community recognises our efforts and helps in every way possible to support the cause – through donations, reporting animal cruelty and through competitions such as this from MiX Telematics,” says Esté Kotzé, Deputy CEO for the NSPCA. “Winning this amazing prize means that we can reach and assist more animals in need across the country. We want to thank everyone who nominated the NSPCA and a special thank you to MiX Telematics for the car and the lifetime subscription to their tracking and recovery services.”
