Are you an activist?

Are you an activist? Well, if you’re not, then we would like you to be! No, we are not asking you to be Che Guevara or Mahatma Gandhi. Instead we would like you to register on the website as an activist and use your participation in the Cape Outback 2013 as an opportunity to raise some much needed funds for Die Burger Kersfonds. It’s really easy: register as an activist on, choose Die Burger Kersfonds as your charity and start your campaign. The Cape Outback 2013 is helping Die Burger Kersfonds to reach its goal of raising R1.3m for its charitable projects.
