Now's your chance to use it to make a big difference to your favourite charity!

Simply vote for Siyabonga Africa in the MySchool | MyVillage | MyPlanet R1 million Vote4Charity Challenge to help us win a share of the R1 million up for grabs.

How it works:

  1. 1. Select Siyabonga Africa as your favourite charity
  2. 2. Enter your MySchool or linked Woolworths card number to vote
  3. 3. Share your vote to boost your donation.

Every vote is worth R5, which MySchool will donate on your behalf, and if you share your vote on social media they will double their donation to R10!

That's not all ... 5 lucky voters will also win a R5000 gift card each! So it's a WIN–WIN situation.

Help us reach our goal of 1000 votes, which could potentially generate R10000 for Siyabonga Africa.

What does this mean for us? R10000 equates to groceries for 80 impoverished people for a month or helping 10 young people become computer literate. It could provide life skills for over 140 youth or Early Childhood Development training for 8 aspiring creche owners.

So please cast your vote and make a difference.

If you don't have a MySchool Card, there couldn't be a better time to get one. Sign up instantly online or get the App here. There is no charge and – apart from helping Siyabonga Africa by voting for us – you can also help raise funds for us by swiping the card every time you shop at Woolworths and other participating stores.
