Giving back - Child Survivors of Crime (C.S.O.C)

Last month (May 2019) Telspace was once again a sponsor at the ITWeb Security Summit 2019, for more information on the ITWeb Security Summit refer to:
In addition to sponsoring this local conference, Telspace proudly ran a charity initiative on the days of the summit whereby we gave out original Telspace branded t-shirts to delegates (with a twist). 

Every year we donate an amount to a charity for each t-shirt we give out, this year that amount was R40.00 per shirt. However, we also decided to try and give back more to the chosen charity and had a donation box at the stand. If a delegate wanted a t-shirt, a small donation (of any value) was requested in return for the t-shirt. Amazingly, thanks to the generous delegates at the summit, the donations box raised R3 296.10 over the 2 days. We thank you all for your generous contributions to this amazing initiative.

The chosen charity for this year was Child Survivors of Crime (C.S.O.C). This wonderful charity creates a rainbow after the storm for children affected by crime. Support is individually tailored to the specific needs of each child because each one’s circumstances are unique. They offer this support via psychological, material, educational, peer and general assistance. Should you like more information on this charity and / or to assist in contributing in some way, please do not hesitate to view their website and get in touch by going to: This goes in line with one of our Junior Analyst's research topic for 2019 (Hi Delicia!).

In addition to the generous R3 296.10 raised, Telspace will be donating an additional R 8 000.00 (200 shirts x R40), making a total of R11 296.10 that will be donated to this amazing charity and initiative! We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the delegates that donated and participated in this initiative as well as our staff for getting involved! 

It should be noted that the t-shirts contain a hidden challenge, if you received a t-shirt, find the challenge, solve it and play along to see where it may take you! 

We would like to take this opportunity to once again say thank you to our staff, everyone that visited our stand and to everyone that showed support for Telspace Systems and in particular C.S.O.C. THANK YOU!
