We are sad to announce that the weekly SweepStar contributions from the SweepSouth COVID-19 SweepStar Fund will be cut in half from Wednesday, 20 May 2020.
Our aim was to raise R12 million to support SweepStars during the lockdown, however, we have only managed to raise R8.9 million in donations. So far, we have paid out over R6.5 million to over 3,300 SweepStars over the last 6 weeks. To be able to continue supporting SweepStars over the next few weeks of lockdown, the weekly contributions will be halved.
This means the following:
- SweepStars who received R150 a week will now receive R75.
- SweepStars who received R450 a week will now receive R225.
This only affects the SweepSouth COVID-19 SweepStar Fund contributions and not individual client contributions.
This is a difficult time for all of us and we will continue to ask for more donations.
