Aside from Woolworths voucher giveaways, MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet has pledged R1 million rand in donations towards a charity closest to your heart, in their Vote4Charity campaign.
So here’s the deal: all you need to do (and I swear there are no catches here), is go to the Vote4Charity site here, click onto your chosen charity (it can be different to your MySchool beneficiary), and they’ll donate it. If you share onto social media, they will give another R5. So really, with about four clicks, you will have actioned a donation, at no cost to yourself.
If you are an organisation/charity on the charity list, it’s worthwhile rallying the troops so to speak and getting friends, family and supporters to vote for you.
When voting, you’ll need to type in your MySchool card number, and if you don’t have a card yet, you can get one on the site. For those who don’t have one, and who are worried it’s acts like a credit card, it really isn’t (I’ve written more about the card over here).
Here’s what people have voted for the most so far:
It’s a free card that lets you make a difference to a beneficiary of your choice, and all you need to do is get it swiped at the till, and money will be given to your beneficiary, at no cost to you at all. The MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme raises more than R6 million per month for the schools, charities, animal welfare and environmental organisations it supports.
As a finale to the challenge, Vote4Charity will also support each of the three charities with the most votes by funding the R25 000 production of a professional promotional video. Five voters will also each win a R5 000 Woolies gift card.
You can cast your vote until June 18 on www.myschool.co.za/vote4charity
