MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet turns 20 and you could win a R20K Woolworths gift card PLUS R20K for your cause

Can you believe MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet celebrates its 20th anniversary this year?

When the programme first started it was originally just ‘MySchool’ and supported education, but now it’s grown to help schools as well as a huge array of charities and conservation organisations, raising more than R6 million A MONTH!

What makes MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet so awesome is that you don’t have to give in order to do exactly that. You just sign up, link your card to a cause and a portion of your spend at participating stores is given back on your behalf. So, if you’re shopping at partner stores like Woolies and or filling up at Engen (another partner) you’d be crazy not to sign up.

Anyway, MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet’s new goal is to double its impact by gaining up to 2 million supporters. To help create awareness and increase sign ups they’re celebrating their 20th anniversary with a #MySchool20 campaign that encourages supporters to talk about their causes.

I’m only too happy to help, especially since the programme very kindly offered to donate R5000 on my behalf to Volunteer Wildfire Services.

It’s going to be a long, hot and VERY dry summer and, as much as I hate to say it, we all know Cape Town’s going to end up burning (again!) so I’m incredibly grateful for the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to fight the flames.

Would you be as kind to talk about the programme too? If you do, you could be one of 20 lucky people to each win a R20 0000 Woolworths gift card PLUS a R20 000 cash donation to your school or cause of choice. All you have to do is use #MySchool20 on Facebook or twitter while letting people know which cause you’d like to see gifted with that huge R20 000 donation. (For extra points, feel free to insert a link to this blog post that’ll explain to others how they too can win a pay day for themselves as well as their cause of choice.)

Love, love

  1. Hi Leigh honey

    As my Tablet that cost R10k crashed during your holiday I have not neen on Social Media much and cant sedm to sign into wordpress I have an ancient Blackberry – ok so tomorrow I turn the BIG 50 ALBEIT my husband calls me a spring chicken.

    I had a full MRI last Friday – neck, spine and pelvis ‘ besides the fact my neck has degenerated so badly I cannot delay surgery for much longer and I have multiple cysts on my ovaries -AGAIN…

    I am a CANSA Volunteer and have changed my Woolies Card to support Cansa in George where I live – we seriously need the money, not only do Cansa bring awareness to Cancer, they do Research, Homing of Patients and teaching/training of staff.

    I had a meeting with the Head of Cansa in George earlier this week and they have asked me to stay onboard as they are in financial difficulties – so could really do with the funds!

    I am going to try and approach a large Corporate to see if they will assist in supporting us albeit that could take months for a buy in!

    The Pink Ladies who drive Harleys – only bring awareness to Cancer – Cancer does so much more as above!

    I’ve also just become involved with a feeding of the homeless in George and am continuously looking for any assistance – we are still looking for sponsors – we feed around 400 homeless/street people every Friday night.

    I love paying it forward and believe in paying it back even though we dont have that much money ourselves we donate to any cause required.

    We sponsor the NSRI in Wilderness and are always giving vouchers to Cansa and St Lukes to Auction off to raise funds.

    I have partaken in 5 Cuppa’s in 17 months – my latest being with Mrs SA finalist Gèla le Roux.

    I hope I can be inline to be considered – there are so many people living below the breadline its awful 😰
