#PayWithVisa – with your help, I get to do good and you get to WIN

This post comes with two parts. 1) I need you to help me pick a charity that could get R3000 worth of much needed goods from Visa and 2) play the online shopping game and you could win prizes for yourself. So read on, recommend, play and share 🙂

Visa has created a really fun way to shop this festive season. Their virtual trolley dash allows you to play a game in which you can easily and very quickly select goodies from Visa’s simulated electronic store up to the value of R500 (and you get to up your score with an extra R20 for sharing to Facebook and Twitter). A daily prize of R500 will be awarded to one person per day who selects the most goodies in the limited time, and the top four speedy shoppers will go through to a 90 second finale in which the ultimate winner will win a R30 000 prize!

I’ll be shopping for charity but you could be shopping for R30 000! Click the image below if you want to play too (T’s and C’s apply to the game).


It’s that time of year again when we all indulge a little more over the festive season. But there are many people who aren’t so lucky. With the #paywithVisa online trolley dash, I have the chance to give back by filling up my virtual trolley for charity. If I win the game, I’ll be able to donate up to R3000 worth of essentials to those in need.

Here’s where I need your help. I’ve chosen my top three charities, but I’d like for you to help me decide which charity I should donate the goods and money to. Here is my shortlist:

1. The Jess Foord Foundation – Organisation that works with Rape victims  http://www.jff.org.za

2. Sizanani Children’s Home – a home for disabled children. http://www.sizanani.org/

3. FEW – Foundation that works with LGBTI community   http://www.few.org.za/

Don’t forget to Tweet me @akona1 using the #PayWithVisa hashtag and tell me which of the three charities I should go shopping for. The blogger with the most recommendations will also get their money doubled so click that tweet button and let’s put smiles on the faces of those in need this festive season!

Shopping under pressure, that’s hard. Paying with your Visa card. That’s easy.
