M-Net expo furniture to be donated to children's charities

Decorex SA has announced that M-Net has renewed its media sponsorship of the décor, design and lifestyle exhibition. Both parties value this partnership as an effective means of creating awareness and offering support to children's charities, with the primary focus being on education.
The theme of M-Net Care's presence at Decorex SA exhibitions in 2013 will be 'Room to Grow', which will showcase children's rooms and stimulate ideas for spaces dedicated to children to visitors to the shows in Durban, Cape Town and Joburg.

The initiative will focus on children's furniture and décor that encourage a happy, nurturing and educational lifestyle. The furniture featured in the space will be donated to underprivileged children, supporting their growth needs and embracing the principals of 'do-good-design'.

"We are proud to have M-Net on board as media partner for another year," says GM of Decorex SA, Sian Steyn. "The work we have accomplished together so far has benefited many young people and we will continue to do so in 2013."

Koo Govender, M-Net director: corporate marketing and communications, says the M-Net Cares collaboration with Decorex SA is a prime example of its commitment to education. "It's important to create an environment that suits the needs of our children - from toddlers to teens. 'Room to Grow' will showcase the necessary tools required in achieving effective childhood development and in the end the exhibition will make a difference where it's needed most."

Decorex Durban 2013 exhibition opens at the Durban Exhibition Centre, 21-24 March 2013.
