LottoStar and The Star Foundation have empowered different communities across South Africa. Join us as we reflect on the remarkable journey highlighting the impact we made on medical, sports, recreational, educational and community initiatives throughout 2023.
After a record-breaking radiothon in 2022, this year we had the privilege of donating a fully equipped kitchen to Sibelius High School through the Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA). The kitchen will help address the widespread issue of hunger among school children. During PSFA’s 65 years of operation, this is the 132nd kitchen provided to a school.
Thanks to our incredible players’ generosity, we were able to raise R4 Million for Lambano Sanctuary. LottoStar matched every rand donated. The funds raised will cover the annual running costs of the sanctuary. Lambano Sanctuary is an organization that assists individuals affected by HIV/AIDS. They currently have 28 children in their care. They also plan on opening a pediatric medical facility. Your contribution will help make this initiative a reality.
In 2022, LottoStar’s The Star Foundation partnered with Kfm 94.5 for a year-long campaign to fund 200 surgeries by Project Flamingo - an organization that promotes inclusive cancer care in the South African public healthcare system. Over the past year, we have empowered 200 women across the Western Cape and Eastern Cape by providing life-changing breast cancer surgeries for those who have been on the waiting list for at least a year. Over R1,2 Million was donated to Project Flamingo.
Summer of Millions with Jacaranda FM
Jacaranda FM listeners raised an impressive R891,000 during our Summer of Millions competition. The funds went towards Jacaranda FM’s Good Morning Angels (GMA), a heartfelt initiative hosted by Martin Bester. The segment of the show assisted several recipients such as the Hercules Community Policing Forum, a woman in need of a wheelchair, the Bela Bela Protection Association and a lady who was involved in a motorbike accident.
Deal or No Deal – South Africa
LottoStar became the proud sponsor of Deal or No Deal this year. As the show gives constants a chance to win up to R250,00 in cash prizes, it also served as a platform for giving back where a total of R716 759 was raised by celebrity contestants who battled it out to win money for causes close to their hearts. We experienced history in the making when celebrities such as Zahara and Lebogang Tlokwana won R250,000 for causes close to their hearts.
Woza Win with Ukhozi FM
The proceeds from LottoStar’s Woza Win competition with Ukhozi FM went towards The Star Foundation in support of Zero 2 Five – an organization that promotes early childhood development in disadvantaged communities in Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Eastern Cape provinces. Over R400,000 was raised for the organization.
The Star Foundation x Tiger Brands
The Star Foundation launched a five-year in-school breakfast program in collaboration with The Tiger Brands Foundation. The program will benefit at least 7,555 learners across eight schools in the Ehlanzheni District of Hazyview. Beyond providing a nutritious breakfast, the initiative aims to provide training and internships as part of community development.
As we conclude our 2023 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, we would like to thank our players for their generosity in helping us to make positive changes in different communities across the country. With your support, we look forward to making more impact in 2024.
Charity is our privilege, not an obligation.
