This is how you can donate to HospiceWits with your MySchool card

South Africa’s leading community loyalty programme, MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet has paid R57 million to a range of worthy causes this year alone, and has been a loyal supporter of these causes for more than a decade. Once you’ve signed up to receive your own MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card, you are able to nominate up to three charities, who will receive a percentage of your purchase every time you swipe your card at one of the programme’s partner stores.

If you are interested in supporting HospiceWits on a regular basis, but can’t afford regular cash donations, the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme is the easiest way to assist us in our crucial fundraising efforts.

How to sign up

To sign up for the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme, simply visit the programme’s website and click on “Join” in the top-right corner. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be able to download a virtual card to your mobile device from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, or collect the card from your nearest Woolworths branch.

My School MyVillage MyPlanet has partnered with Woolworths, Engen QuickShops and Foodstops (excluding petrol and diesel purchases at Engen), loot.co.za and Bidvest Waltons, and every time you shop at one of these retailers and swipe your MySchool card at the till point, a percentage of the total amount of your purchase will be donated to your charity (or charities) of choice.

To select HospiceWits as one of your chosen charities, click on the drop-down menu labelled “Beneficiaries” at the top of the homepage, then click on “Search”, and type “Hospice Wits” (two words) into the search box, and click on “Hospice Wits”.

Discovery Vitality members who have Woolworths as their nominated food store will also be able to contribute when they swipe for every healthy food purchase made.

In addition, don’t forget to link your MySchool card to all your Woolies cards, and a percentage will also be given back when you swipe these cards at Woolworths.

Together with HospiceWits’ other annual fundraising efforts, the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet programme is an easy way to help us to continue doing our work in Johannesburg and Soweto. Your contribution is invaluable.
