Dear Splashy Fen Fan.
We trust you are all well and staying positive in these testing times.
This is a tough period for everyone, and none more so for our live entertainment and events industry. Small businesses closing, freelance workers with no income, musicians with no shows. And it looks like it’s here to stay for a matter of months, not weeks.
We had to do something!
Splashy is nothing without any of these creative, musicians or service providers. Our team sat down and did some brainstorming around how we could add some positivity to the situation. There is one product EVERYONE is buying, because we all need it – hand sanitizers.
We debated on how we could try direct these profits currently being produced by large chemical and chain brands into our industry. A few calls later and we had secured a decent volume of SABS approved hospital grade sanitizer liquid. A few more calls later and we had bottles, labels and an idea.
Our Splashy Cares program is our CSI initiative, a program that aims to help and aid projects that mean something to our festival and our community. In the past we have directed funds to local community projects, which we will continue to do so, but extra-ordinary times call for extra ordinal human support.
And so we are asking you to support our bottled hand sanitizer liquid product which we will be making available to people to purchase. All profits raised from this will then be kept in our Splashy Cares fund, and used as a support mechanism for people in our industry and Splashy family who literally have no work.
This liquid will be available in 500ml and 1L containers (images below), and orders can be placed by sending an email to email@example.com. Bulk orders (more than 25L) will be delivered to your home/business, and orders below that will have collection points located at this stage in Durban, Hillcrest and Pietermaritzburg.
You will need to indicate in your mail what size bottle (500ml or 1L) and how many of each you would like to purchase, and your preferred pick up location (Durban, Hillcrest or PMB). Payments will be in cash at collection points.
Specs & pricing for the liquid are as follows:
500ml – R150
1L – R280
SABS ISO 9001 approved
We thank you for your support in advance and look forward to working together to help those who have been so affected by this COVID-19 Virus.
Cheers for now,
Stu and Fuzz
