We are very proud to be associated with the tremendous work all the dedicated staff do at Cotlands.
NetFlorist have been long-time supporters of Cotlands and started the now annual "Yellow Roses Campaign" in 2007 to bring awareness to Cotlands and the phenomenal success story behind it to the public, by donating a percentage of profits raised through the sale of yellow roses.
Founded in 1936, Cotlands was originally created as a care centre for unwed mothers and their infants, and over the years has evolved into an organisation offering shelter for abused, abandoned, HIV-positive, orphaned and terminally ill children from birth to twelve years of age, as well as community based services to vulnerable children in five provinces of South Africa.
And now to further encourage the support of Cotlands, NetFlorist is asking our customers to "roundup" to the nearest R5 for any transactions you place with us. All proceeds/donations will then paid over to Cotlands at the end of every month (less the credit card charges on the donations). As a result of this initiative, we were proud to donate R144 000 to Cotlands on behalf of ourselves and our customers for the 2011 calendar year.

NetFlorist is proud to be associated with Legacy Hotels as a part of their Legacy Pride social responsibility initiative that is encouraging South Africans to act together and identify as one "pride" in the fight against crime. Legacy Pride was originally launched by the Legacy Hotel Group in honor of Bruno Corte, one of the company's founders, and Bart Dorrestein junior, also from the Legacy family, who both died violent deaths as a result of random lawlessness. The Legacy Pride campaign now raises funds for the national drive to combat crime.
The range of the Legacy pride includes two lions that carry the names of Bruno or Bartie in memory of their namesakes. Also in the Legacy pride is a Rhino named David in memory of Rattray, Leigh the Giraffe after Leigh Matthews, and a monkey named Brett in memory of Brett Goldin, famous for his part in the internationally famous Crazy Monkey series. The aim of the Pride is ultimately to create a community with the same common goal to end crime in South Africa through whatever means the public can embrace. This campaign is a light-hearted way of tackling the very heavy burden of crime on our society.
Animals can either be purchase at any one of the Legacy hotels or by clicking here for a cost of R150 each and all proceeds go to the anti-crime trust.
