CMR East London to benefit from MySchool programme
CMR East London is excited to announce that we have signed on as a beneficiary of the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme.
Money raised through this initiative will go to CMR's Victory House – Place of Restoration, our home for abused women and their children.
And as an additional bonus, Victory House will receive R20 for every person we sign up between now and October 29.
How does MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet work?
One of South Africa's biggest fundraising initiatives, this programme allows you to make a difference to our organisation, just by shopping. Every time you use your card at any of our partner stores they'll give back a percentage of your purchase value, on your behalf, to CMR East London to help fund the important social programmes we run for East London families. So get shopping and swiping!
More than 1.2 million South Africans carry MySchool cards. Supporters apply for a free MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card and select up to 3 schools and/or charities as their beneficiary/ies. When they purchase items from participating retailers they swipe the card with the purchase.
A percentage of their transaction is then allocated to their beneficiary.
The partner stores pay the contribution on behalf of the cardholder. All these transactions are recorded and a statement is sent to individual supporters on a monthly basis. The supporter card is not a credit or debit card but simply tracks transactions and funds raised.
Support a school or your favourite cause
You have the option to choose to support one of over 9000 schools and over 360 charities and environmental concerns.
Benefits of being a cardholder
You can raise funds for your favourite school or charity without costing you a cent. You can use one card at many different stores, not just one. Exclusive discounts and special offers for cardholders. For example, you are automatically part of WRewards from Woolworths (which includes up to 20% instant savings on over 1000 items in their stores plus other tiered benefits), you get R50 off every GetAhead or MathPro educational software item that you buy, and you get exclusive discounts on vehicle recovery from Altech Netstar. You will receive a monthly email statement showing exactly how much your beneficiary has raised.
Once you have received your supporter card, you can manage and change your support as follows:
Support your chosen beneficiary school or charity;
Change your support to another beneficiary; or
Split your support between two or three beneficiaries.
It’s so convenient! When a child leave schools and the parents want to start supporting a charity, they can change beneficiaries without the hassle of getting a new card. You have the option to choose to support one of over 9000 schools and over 360 charities and environmental concerns.
How to become a supporter
In order to become a supporter, you need to be registered with MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet and select a school or charity to support. You can register online, or get a card at your local Woolworths store. It’s quick and easy!
