Handmade items to bring joy to thousands of children across SA

Jun 14, 2017

Entries for the annual Pretty Things for Little Things campaign, sponsored by Shoprite in conjunction with Age-in-Action, are open.

Customers, especially senior citizens who are also eligible to win prizes, are encouraged to put their creative talents to work and make much needed toys and clothes for children in disadvantaged communities.

There are four different categories for submissions: soft toys, blankets, clothing and “other” - which includes articles made from materials such as wood, tin or wire.

Three winners per category will be selected in each province as well as nationally. The provincial winners each receive vouchers to the value of R2 000, R1 500 and R1 000 for first, second and third places respectively. National winners receive vouchers to the value of R5 000, R3 000 and R2 000 for the top three positions respectively. The vouchers can be used at any Shoprite store in South Africa.

The Pretty Things for Little Things campaign is part of our #ActForChange initiative – an ongoing commitment to giving back to the local communities in which we operate.

Entries close Thursday, 31 August and items can be submitted at any Shoprite store in South Africa or any of the Age-in-Action regional offices. Download the entry form HERE.
