It was crazy to see the malls fill with learners piling shopping trollies full of stationery before the new school year, and realizing that not everyone can afford being in school for the new year. If I could, I would make sure that every child in South Africa stays in school, so I am doing what I can. I have gotten the help of our friends at Shoprite to support the importance of educating the children of SA and assisting them with basic resources.
Shoprite has offered to donate over R40 000.00 worth of stationery to two schools in South Africa. I don’t want to give it to my own schools I attended. I want you to nominate your own school and #ShareForGood.
This includes :
- Stationery sets
- Colouring & wax crayons
- Copy Paper
- Flip files
- Glue sticks
- Permanent markers
- Pencil boxes
Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading #ShareForGood and a short letter of why your school should receive the stationery. Closing date for your entry is Tuesday 17 th 2015.
Also, Join the conversation online, and share your entry on Twitter by tagging @Shoprite_SA and @elanaafrika to say which school you have nominated and use the hashtag #ShareForGood
Hope you are gonna love school this year as much as I did.
