BirdLife South Africa’s work could not continue without the generous bequests from many of our supporters.
The MyPlanet programme was launched as an extension of the MySchool programme to provide community-minded individuals with the opportunity to support a worthy cause without having a prior relationship with a school.
If you don’t have children, or your children have already left school, and you wish to continue supporting a worthy cause, such as BirdLife South Africa, with every swipe of your MySchool card, then this option is perfect for you.
It is not just a thing for wealthy people to do nowadays. Supporters come from all walks of life who wish to leave something to the wild birds and their habitats which brought so much pleasure to their lives.
What is a Planet?
Planets are classified as organisations that focus on the improvement and protection of the environment and animals. BirdLife South Africa is one of the top Planets.
So how can YOU support BirdLife South Africa?
A MyPlanet card is a very easy way of raising funds for BirdLife South Africa on a monthly basis without actually having to make a contribution. Choose BirdLife South Africa as the beneficiary on your card and all that is necessary is for the card holder to have the card swiped before paying the participating store. The amount donated to BirdLife South Africa will be calculated automatically. Every time you shop, you could be giving something back. When you swipe your MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card at Woolworths, Bidvest Waltons, Loots.co.za, Engen, Flight Centre and many other stores, a percentage of your purchases can be given back to BirdLife South Africa. The best part? It won’t cost you a cent!
