We have been completely overwhelmed by the response - not only from the many incredible entries, but also the huge amount of interest and support of the initiative. In just one week, we had over 37,000 views of our Facebook
To say that our task of choosing a winner this weekend was a difficult one is an enormous understatement. Each and every entry is thoroughly deserving of a win and we just want to say an extra big thank you to those who sent in their entries. You're all heroes and we salute every one of you.
Of course, a winner did need to be chosen and, after much heated deliberation between ourselves and Merlot, Girlie, Levi and Zakkie, we decided to award a joint 1st place! We just could NOT choose between these two, and so we're delighted to be awarding R2500 and a magnum of Adoro wine to both Cat Care (thanks to Riley's winning entry) and Aniwell (thanks to Squirt's winning entry)!
In addition, we also decided to award a 2nd and 3rd place! 2nd place goes to Top Dogs, an incredible initiative nominated by Zack's fantastic entry. In 3rd place, our Board of Directors insisted on Duke's entry nominating Border Collie Rescue, given that we received a few nominations for this charity and the obvious fact that our Board of Directors are all Border Collie rescues themselves! Both our 2nd and 3rd place charities will receive Adoro wine for use in fund-raising activities.
We'd also like to say a big thank you to Wine.co.za for their wonderful support of this initiative.
Another thank you to everyone who entered, we truly appreciate all of the support! As you can tell, we're incredibly passionate about animals, so please stay in touch with us here on Facebook for the announcement of our next initiative later this year.
