The recent campaign run by Animaltalk and TeenZone magazine #AnimaltalkAnnie raised funds nation-wide for local animal organisations/ shelters. #AnimaltalkCares
Animaltalk and TeenZone Magazines hosted a national premier screening in aid of selected animal welfare beneficiaries on Thursday 29 January 2015. All venues were fully booked and guests were treated to a night out with the family. This was all for the purpose of raising funds for their respective local shelters. Guests arrived with bags filled with donations at all four venues and it was a great opportunity for the Animaltalk andTeenZone teams to meet those who read the magazine while pushing welfare involvement to the public.
