Yo! Thank you
As parents, we all know that the only way to truly teach our kids generosity and kindness, is to embody those values ourselves. This February, you and your kids can join Yokico in celebrating the month of love with our annual "Sharing is Caring Campaign!" We have partnered with more under-resourced schools to help provide much needed stationery to their learners. Our Yokico friends and family can make a difference to a child's life by adding on a simple donation of R5 or more to their in store purchase during this month, or by buying a stationery pack for a child to the value of R50, R100, R150 or R200. Yokico will match the value of every stationery pack purchased and donation given to double the joy! Last year we donated stationery to the value of R22,405 to these special kids. This year we are aiming to get even more donations with the help of our Yoki friends and families. Thank you for helping us spread some love around.
Yokico is proud to be a GOLD BUSINESS MEMBER of WESSA (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa). WESSA is a South African environmental organisation which aims to initiate and support high impact environmental and conservation projects to promote participation in caring for the Earth.
Through the proceeds of the sales of our colour-in paper bags during the last financial year (2020), we made a donation of R27,500 towards WESSA.
We are positive that we will be able to keep donating even more to WESSA as our business grows. We chose WESSA specifically because of their work with schools and teachers throughout South Africa on a range of local and international programmes to support and improve school curricula with regard to environmental learning, enabling learners to achieve their full potential towards a sustainable future by taking environmental action in their own areas.
