Cape Coupons magazine wants to make a difference in the community by giving away parts of its income to charity and learners in need.

The Kensington-based company says though it is a profit generating business it has decided to commit in giving back to communities a maximum of 40% of the profit through bursary donations and discount coupons. The coupons can be purchased in a form of a hard copy at R10 per magazine or online. The coupons give customers a discount of up to 50% in selected stores. Marketing manager at Cape Coupons Dale Le Breton says they have created relations with businesses in exchange of free marketing so they can assure that customers have reasons to look forward when buying the magazines so they could afford to make enough money to be able to give back.

Cape coupons have reportedly partnered with the IT business college to give three bursaries to be awarded to three needy Grade 12 learners. The first one is a full bursary of R25 000 00 that would cover the tuition fee for the whole year at the College. The second one is R12 500 and the last one is R4000 for a short a course all to be used at the college.

Breton says they are currently also looking forward to identifying a family that really need intervention in terms of basic needs such as food parcels.

“We are currently working with schools in the Kensington area and we are branching out across the Western Cape. Too often learners do not have the funds to pay for school fees, lunch, stationary the list goes on. We offer people coupons to use at different outlets such as restaurants and dentists. We recognize times are tough so we give people a reason to spend their hard earned money with them enjoying a product or service for less and at the same time helping the less fortunate.

“We are also working on a job creation strategy and partnering with IT Business College to offer people or matriculants who do not have the funds courses for free,” says Breton.

A few shops that the company is currently working with includes Maitland Auto Clinic, Dentist On 4th street, Oaysis Hair Studio and IT Business College Providing Bursaries.
