The Little Shop Of Generosity Comes To Pretoria

Cadbury Dairy Milk is tapping into South Africa’s boundless generosity to shed light on the fact that there are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa.

The Little Generosity Shop will give the country the chance to make a difference in the lives of as many children as possible by collecting toys, books and games – in exchange for a Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate.

The campaign started with the image of thousands of paper planes floating down the hollow centre of the iconic Ponte building, highlighting the fact that millions of orphans and vulnerable children have very little opportunity to experience even the smallest of delights – a toy of their own, to play with.

In a bid to help change that, Cadbury Dairy Milk is bringing The Little Generosity Shop to Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town to collect as many toys, games and books as possible. A mobile Little Generosity Shop will also be roaming the country to inspire the spirit of generosity.

While true generosity doesn’t ask for any reward, Cadbury Dairy Milk will be thanking South Africa for showing that “there’s a glass and a half” in everyone by handing over a Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, in exchange for donations at the shop.

When visiting this shop, consumers have the opportunity to write a personalised message to a child they will be donating the toy to. In addition, visitors will be able to learn about the history of Cadbury Dairy Milk and pick up tips on how to spread their generosity even further with ‘Cadbury Chronicles’. The interactive wall will show how the journey of a single donated toy inspires untold happiness and will track the number of toys collected as part of the campaign.

Cadbury Dairy Milk is bringing The Little Generosity Shop to:

  • Johannesburg: Sandton City, Checkers Court (29 May – 17 June)
  • Durban: Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Centre Court (25 June – 8 July)
  • Cape Town: Canal Walk Shopping Centre, Centre Court (19 July – 5 August)

The mobile Little Generosity Shop will also be visiting:

  • Bloemfontein: Loch Logan (7, 8 & 9 June)
  • Port Elizabeth: Baywest Mall (15 & 16 June)
  • Pretoria: Irene Village Mall (28, 29 & 30 June)
  • Nelspruit: Riverside Mall (12, 13 & 14 July)

“Through The Little Generosity Shop, South Africans will have a platform to share the spirit of generosity,” says Lara Sidersky, Mondelez SA Category Lead for Chocolate. “And so, we are urging all South Africans to get together and get behind this wonderful initiative. Together we can all be more generous. Not just by giving a toy to a child in need, but every day, with each other.”

With South Africa’s help, Cadbury Dairy Milk hopes to spread the spirit of generosity. To find out how to share your generosity, visit and follow them on @CadburyDairyMilkSA on Facebook or @Cadbury_SA on Twitter and Instagram.
