MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet has announced a new partnership that sees online retailer loot.co.za join the fund-raising initiative that raises millions of rands for schools and charities every year.
MySchool supporters will now be able to shop loot.co.za’s online offering, and with every purchase loot.co.za will make a contribution to their chosen beneficiary. This donation comes from the retailer at no extra expense to the consumer.
The partnership comes at a crucial time since it enriches the MySchool offering to its supporters, allowing the fund-raiser even more opportunities to contribute towards schools and charities in South Africa.
Loot.co.za currently offers more than 14-million products across 17 departments including books, DVDs, music, games, electronics, toys, baby, kitchen and home, stationery, arts and crafts, outdoor, health and beauty, office supplies, DIY and more, with free delivery on purchases of R250 or more.
MySchool currently has 1,1-million active cardholders and raises an average of R6-million per month for schools and charities.
“With more and more South Africans embracing the convenience of online shopping, loot.co.za, as a strong, pure-play e-commerce retailer fills an essential gap in the MySchool partner network,” says Pieter Twine MySchool’s GM. “It’s also great to have an online retail partner that has such a big product offering over so many categories. We are pleased to welcome loot.co.za and increase our retail partners to make it easier for our supporters to swipe more often, raise more funds and make an even bigger difference.”
“As South Africans we should all be playing an active role in the upliftment of our youth and in improving the lives of all children in our country. This is why we’re so excited about the partnership, as it would make giving back even easier, ” says Gary Hadfield loot.co.za’s CEO. “That’s the driving force behind our motivation to get on board as a MySchool partner. Through the partnership we will be able to give back in a more tangible way.”
