This Christmas you can bring some festive cheer to some of the many less fortunate children in South Africa by donating toys to the annual Shoprite Checkers Toy 4 Toy campaign.

While most of us will be enjoying the cheerful festive spirit of the season and buying abundant gifts for our loved ones, many children in South Africa face a far bleaker Christmas. Shoprite Checkers has therefore once again teamed up with the South African Red Cross Society and the Sunday Times for the “Toy 4 Toy” campaign that urges consumers to donate new or used toys to less privileged children during the festive season. For every toy that consumers donate during this festive season, Shoprite Checkers will match it with a brand new toy. Through the 2007 Toy 4 Toy campaign Shoprite Checkers was able to hande over more than 24 00 toys to the South African Red Cross Society to distribute amongst needy children across the country. 

From Friday, 14 November until Monday, 15 December all South African citizens can make a contribution by buying or bringing toys and placing them in the Golden Trolleys in front of all Shoprite, Checkers, and Checkers Hyper stores countrywide. 

Customers who donate new toys also stand a chance of winning one of ten Shoprite or Checkers shopping vouchers to the value of R5 000 each. To qualify for the lucky draw, which will take place on 19 December, customers must attach their till slip to the Toy 4 Toy entry form and place it in the Toy 4 Toy entry box in the store. 

Let’s spread some Christmas cheer this festive season and bring a smile to the faces of needy children by assisting Ted and Rob, our official Toy 4 Toy campaign mascots, with the collection of more toys than ever this year.
