Honey “Pen Pal” initiative saves a child

picture5Thanks to the dedication and passion that its sales representatives have shown this year, Honey Fashion Accessories has been able to hand over a cheque for R140,000 to the WSPCCA.

In its 2008 collection, Honey marketed eight stylish pen designs of which a percentage of the total sold would benefit the WSPCCA.

Having sold over 14,000 pens, Honey was able to raise the targeted R140,000 to save a child— who will be nicknamed the “Honey Child”.

The Honey ladies really rose up to the challenge and  secured numerous corporate deals and private sales.  The ladies have also provided many free gifts to the WSPCCA nursing staff.

Honey WSPCCA pens are still on sale.  Honey plans  to introduce a new range in  next year’s collection to continue contributing to the charity.

Interested corporates and consumers are encouraged to contact their local Honey Fashion Accessories sales representative or visit the company’s website (http://www.honeyacc.co.za).
