Swipe when you shop and help return rehabilitated raptors to the wild
The African Raptor Trust is a formal beneficiary of the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet fundraising programme. This is South Africa’s number one community support programme that raises over R2 million a month for schools, charities and environmental organisations. By joining the programme you can now support our bird of prey conservation projects without even having to visit the Sanctuary.
This is How It works….
Supporters apply for a free MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card and nominate THE AFRICAN RAPTOR TRUST as their beneficiary. When they purchase items from participating retailers they swipe this card with the purchase. A small percentage of the transaction is then allocated to ART. The partner stores pays this donation on your behalf, so you are making a difference to a worthy cause without it costing you a cent! The supporter card is not a credit or debit card, but simply tracks your transactions and a monthly statement is also sent to you.
The success of the programme obviously depends on the number of times supporters swipe their card! Although the percentage given to the African Raptor Trust is small, many people swiping their cards on a regular basis will create a ripple effect and this consistent trickle of funding will help support the sick and injured birds of prey that are admitted to the Raptor Rescue hospital each month.
Please consider swiping a card for the birds of prey in the Raptor Rescue hospital. When all working together we can make a difference!
Supporters can use their cards at a range of national, regional and local retail partners at 2 500 locations nationwide.
