Solidarity thought it fit to launch the BUILD my community facility competition – with R20 000 prize money.
So you will have a chance to reBUILD and improve your favourite community facility this year. Solidarity wishes to donate R20 000 to the person or community that nominates (for example) their school, the old-age home nearby, the library, a children’s home or even the neighbourhood’s park for an upgrade and is named the winner.
The R20 000 will then be used for upgrading and improving the community facility. Following the upgrading, Solidarity will produce a follow-up video of the changes made.
Who may enter?
Everybody is welcome to enter for this Solidarity competition.
How do I enter?
- Identify a community facility that is near to your heart and that urgently needs upgrading.
- Produce a short video to show us the community facility and to explain to us why this specific community facility should be improved or upgraded.
- Upload your video on Solidarity World (click here) – or upload it on the Solidarity Facebook page with the words ‘#BuildmyCommunity’. Alternatively, you may also send us your video on WhatsApp, using this number: 072 551 8580.
- Members of the public can then vote for their favourite nomination of community facility via the Solidarity Facebook page and the Solidarity website.
When does the competition begin?
The competition will be open from 12:00 on 16 June 2016 until 12:00 on 18 August 2016.
This initiative once again underlines why Solidarity is so much more than an ordinary trade union and that incredible things can happen when Solidarity and the community come together.
