Businesses and employees can become part of the CANSA I’m Alive! subscription using the MyLife Lifestyle App, which consists of a value bundle of discount vouchers, offered by supporting businesses. Download the MyLife Lifestyle App from Google Play or App Store. Find more information…

Johan Olivier, MyLife Group Holdings MD says, “Businesses supporting I’m Alive! can promote their products and services at no cost by offering a discount voucher as part of the CANSA I’m Alive! subscription. What better day than Giving Tuesday, (29 November 2022) a global day dedicated to encouraging people to do good and help non-profit organisations thrive. It’s a unique opportunity for businesses to secure sponsored content while gaining brand equity and meeting their Sustainable Development Goals when donating towards this valuable cause.”

The technology behind the hosting and redemption of the vouchers is powered by MyLife®, a cloud-based wellbeing and wealth creation platform.  Access to MyLife® is free.

Elize Joubert, CANSA’s CEO adds, “We’re thrilled about this new opportunity and partnership with MyLife® in launching this I’m Alive! Movement on GivingTuesday which is vital for many charities. We strive to be an active role player by serving communities and bringing real value to Corporate South Africa through our care and support programmes for people affected by cancer.”

The CANSA I’m Alive! subscription is available to organisations, to offer something valuable to employees as part of an Employee Wellness Programme with an ‘emotional salary’ while the organisation donates to CANSA.

CANSA and MyLife® invites companies, businesses, and employees to participate in the I’m Alive! movement.  Simply download the MyLife Lifestyle App, purchase the CANSA subscription for R200 and redeem discount vouchers to the value of over R10 000.  The discount vouchers can be made available to donors, employees, and individuals, offering value from well-known brands like Global Wellness Enterprises, Arrie Nel Pharmacies, Red Espresso, BoysToys, and Takealot.

Joubert concludes, “By taking part as a supplier or supporting business, you helping to support CANSA with this project to ensure continuity in fulfilling our purpose to ensure that no one faces cancer alone by offering our care and programmes.”
