01 Jul Online Shopping | Shop and give back to charity at the same time
After years of working as a stylist, running around malls sourcing for shoots, nothing fills me with anxiety more than having to go into a mall to shop. Which is why I have developed a serious, almost dangerous, love affair with online shopping, because nothing beats shopping from the comfort of your bed. Except maybe the act of shopping and giving back to a charity at the same time by getting a MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card and shopping at one of their partner retailers like www.loot.co.za.
As a MySchool MyVillage My Planet supporter you can now shop online at loot.co.za and raise funds without it costing you a cent by simply inputting your MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card number before making a payment. After losing my battery pack on vacation, I could not think of anything more taxing than walking into a store in a mall to replace it, so imagine how excited I was when I found a solar powered battery pack on Loot at a discount.
Besides cellphone accessories, Loot currently offers over 14 million products across 17 departments including books, kitchen and home, health and beauty, office supplies etc with free delivery on purchases of R250 or more. I have, since discovering how well priced Loot is, bought a new toaster and kettle- not because I needed them – but because they were so reasonably priced.
MySchool currently has 1.1 million active cardholders and raises an average of R6 million per month for schools and charities. The charity or cause I am supporting is The Thuso Fund for Schools and Charities, which was created by MySchool to support under-resourced schools and charities across South Africa. I picked the Thuso Fund for Schools and Charities because I am a big believer that education should be a right for everyone and the social upliftment of orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children is something we all need to aim for.
