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

While most people are already cherishing thoughts of opening heaps of gifts under glitteringly decorated christmas trees, many children in South Africa face the reality of not having much to look forward to this festive season. Shoprite Checkers has therefore again teamed up with Child Welfare South Africa for the TOY 4 TOY campaign that urges consumers to donate new or used toys to less privileged children. Through the public’s generous giving during the 2009 TOY 4 TOY campaign Shoprite Checkers was able to distribute more than 32 000 toys amongst needy children across the country. 

From Monday, 15 November until Friday, 10 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 buy a new toy at a Checkers or Shoprite supermarket to donate to this campaign, also stand a chance of winning one of ten Shoprite or Checkers vouchers to the value of R5000! To qualify for the lucky draw customers must attach proof of payment of the new toy to the Toy 4 Toy entry form and place it in the Toy 4 Toy entry box in the store. Winners will be announced on 20 December. 

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