If you’ve got a MySchool card you’ll know its the easiest way to give back. Simply swipe your card at its partner stores and BOOM a portion of your spend at no extra cost to you goes towards your chosen charity or school. But it gets better! MySchool’s just teamed up with Loot.
If you don’t know about Loot, you’re missing out. They’re one of SA’s top 5 online e-tailer’s and a bit of an ‘Amazon’ in that they sell pretty much everything at a great rate and deliver it to your doorstep. I often use them to stock up on books before I go on a holiday as their prices are usually the best.
Aside from donating to MySchool every time you shop, Loot is celebrating this upcoming Youth Day by donating 2 300 Tutudesks (a clever li’l lap desk) to underprivileged learners who don’t have a desk. You can learn more about that over here in an old post that saw me working on the floor in a bid to raise awareness. Trust me, working without a desk is a horrible thing. Fortunately, as it stands, The Tutudesk campaign (they’re a MySchool beneficiary) has already helped out 1,3 million kids across the continent.
To use your MySchool card next time you shop on Loot simply enter your card number at check-out. What? You don’t have a MySchool card? Please sign up online over here. It won’t cost you a cent but you’ll become one of the many who help generate funds for a good cause via the simply act of swapping.
Speaking of which, I was given a R500 Loot voucher to blow and didn’t waste any time in snapping up a Philips blender for just R497 that was swiftly delivered to my door.
I’ve been wanting to make a slew of soups for winter so the blender was a must and I christened it with a yummy spicy lentil and tomato number using a recipe I found online.
My only revision was that I left out the kale and used cayenne pepper instead of red pepper flakes and it turned out DELISH!
I’m now souper-amped (ha ha! You see what I did there? And yep, I know I’m a total dork…) to make a whole bunch more of them so if you’ve got a killer soup recipe please link to it and leave it in the comments section below and I’ll love you long time.)
Now get that blerrie MySchool if you don’t have one. Like I said, it’s the easiest way to give back.
