MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet has announced a new partnership with loot.co.za, one of South Africa’s Top 5 online retailers. And it’s epic!

I am a MySchool supporter and I love to browse loot.co.za’s extensive offering. The last time I visited the site to shop for Father’s Day, I noticed that with every purchase made, loot.co.za made a contribution to a charity.

So, this donation was no extra expense to me and it went to MY chosen beneficiary… Thuso Fund for Schools and Charities!

All I had to do as a MySchool supporter shopping on loot.co.za, is at the check-out, enter my MySchool card number & Loot gave back a percentage on every item I bought in their shop towards the MySchool programme. Existing Loot customers, who don’t have a MySchool card, can sign up online at www.myschool.co.za to get their free card.

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 over 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.

Furthermore, MySchool currently has 1.1 million active cardholders and raises around R6 million per month for schools and charities.

“While 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 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. While raising more funds to make an even bigger difference.”

The partnership is a good fit with loot.co.za’s existing corporate social investment focus on education.

“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.”

In celebration of Youth Day… loot.co.za and MySchool will be donating 2 300 Tutudesks to learners who don’t have desks at select under-resourced schools in Limpopo and Mpumalanga.

The Tutudesk Campaign, a MySchool beneficiary, has already assisted 1,3 million learners in 24 African countries with lap desks. Which have significantly improved the overall learning experience for many pupils.
