The Nelson Mandela Bridge
Assupol Group CEO Rudi Schmidt will once again SleepOut™ in solidarity and spend the night of 28 July on The Nelson Mandela Bridge, raising funds. An event that raises money for its chosen causes, but also its impact on social innovation in South Africa. Assupol supports the global movement for positive social change and stand up for vulnerable communities in South Africa. This will be the second time that South Africa will be taking part in this global challenge, where compassion is a priority to build a better world for everyone. The 2016 focus will be on providing vulnerable communities with an education, which leads to financial freedom, therefore nobody has to sleep on the streets.
As a responsible corporate citizen, Assupol’s contribution of R160 000 will make a meaningful and lasting contribution to the success and sustainability of education in South Africa. By committing to take part in The Sun International CEO SleepOut™, Rudi Schmidt amongst fellow #4Leaders4Change aim to gain compassion for the homeless, and raise funds for education – a vital step on the path to ending homelessness.
Assupol management at head office has been challenged to support this initiative by voluntarily participating in the Assupol Sympathy SleepOut™. Together they have been challenged to spend the night on the street at Assupol’s Head Office and raise money to be awarded to a specific Assupol selected charity. A skype call between Rudi Schmidt and his management team will raise more awareness and support in the Assupol Group. There will also be some fun for all Assupol employees around the country to feel part of this Sympathy SleepOut™ by joining in the Slippers and Socks day at work.
