Corporate Social Responsibility
Unlike many companies that focus on supporting Social Responsibility Programs that have been developed by other parties, to date, we have taken a different approach and chosen to give back differently.
Donation of Helmets to Disadvantaged individuals
The start of this project came about a few months ago when one of our Tifosi Sports Exec’s was hit by a car and was bedridden for weeks. Despite suffering numerous debilitating injuries, his head did not suffer any injuries mainly because he was wearing a state of the art helmet, a MET Rivale.
This incident reminded us that accidents with cars and cyclists happen all too frequently in South Africa. Such events do not only affect riders who cycle for sport but also individuals living in communities that use bicycles as a mode of transport to get to and from work. These previously disadvantaged individuals will often cycle in the dark (with no lights) and NO HELMET.
Tifosi Sports has chosen to make a difference in this segment.
We have run various campaigns where members of the public can donate any old helmet (in good condition) to us, and in return, they receive a 30% (thirty per cent) discount off their new MET helmet. These donated helmets are then handed out by our sales representatives who drive around all day and come across individuals riding their bicycles without helmets. These previously disadvantaged recipients are always so grateful for the donation.
Donation of various other Sporting Kit
Other initiatives undertaken by Tifosi Sports in our Corporate Social Responsibility endeavours have been the donation of old sporting product ranges, warranty kits and samples to selected coaches of previously disadvantaged kids and/or teenagers that are showing signs of being up-and-coming athletes in South Africa.
These sporting kits are checked, washed, and Tifosi Sports ensure that the sportswear is in suitable condition to wear.
Results of our Rewarding Initiatives
It is incredibly rewarding for the Tifosi Sports Team to meet the young athletes and other previously disadvantaged individuals that receive and benefit from the premium kit and/or ‘hand-me-downs’. It is even more rewarding for us to listen to the passion and enthusiasm that these individuals talk about their sporting efforts and dreams.
