Mandela Day 2019

Help us to help Knysna Animal Welfare

“It is in your hands to make the world a better one for all”

-Nelson Mandela


For Mandela Day this year we have chosen KAWS (Knysna Animal Welfare Society) as our cause. KAWS plays a hugely important role in assisting vulnerable animals in our Greater Knysna Region and they really need our help. We are therefore appealing to our generous community to join hands with us so that can help KAWS on their important mission, which is “to protect animals, to heal their sickness, fight cruelty and to educate others to do the same. KAWS works hard to not only re-home unwanted animals, but also to provide services to the community to improve the conditions of animal welfare.”

Please help us to help our four-legged friends by joining our drive to collect the basic items needed so that KAWS can carry out their mission effectively. Every donation received will make you eligible to be in the draw for some amazing prizes from Ocean Odyssey.


  • Dog & cat food
  • Cat litter
  • Towels
  • Cat & dog toys
  • Collars & leads
  • Polar fleece blankets

What to do?

Donations can be dropped off at our Ocean Odyssey offices, which are situated in the heart of Thesen Island’s Harbour Town, where you will be issued with your raffle numbers. Remember that every item donated will enter you into the draw for the prizes listed below.

The awesome Ocean Odyssey prizes up grabs:

1st: Whale Watching trip for 2 pax.

2nd: Electric Biking for 2 pax.

Mandela Day provides all South Africans with the perfect opportunity to emulate our late, great Madiba, by taking the time to give back to those that need our help the most vulnerable in our country. We appeal to everyone to help us honour his endearing legacy.
