Madiba Day Celebrations

Madiba Day Celebrations


On Mandela Day Voucher Plus celebrated the Madiba Legacy in collaboration with Footy Ballito and KwaPhenduka Projects. A MUST watch video capturing our day that is really inspiring and memorable has been posted to our youtube channel.

It was epic playing footy and netball with the kids from RA Padayachee Primary School!!! The Jumping castle was so fun (even the adults felt like kids again), the braai delicious, netball and footy was action packed ...but the best was the smiles on all the children's faces and hearing their laughter!!!!

It was also special to stand on the footy field together singing the National Anthem...United ... appreciating the beauty of our Rainbow nation!!!

Voucher Plus strive to make every day a Mandela Day, celebrating Madiba’s life and legacy in a sustainable way that will bring about enduring change. This year we celebrated 100 years since Nelson Mandela’s birth!!! Such an important legacy!!!!

Voucher Plus is proud supporters of KwaPhenduka Projects and hence assisting them with raising awareness of their amazing initiatives that strive towards Youth Development, Social Transformation and Improved Quality of life.

We'd like to extend a huge thank you out to everyone who contributed to such a memorable day; for getting involved, for making a fuss of the kids and for touching their hearts almost as much as they touch ours.

Famous Quotes from the day:
Thobeka “Today is also my birthday and Voucher Plus has made it so special, hearing everyone sing for me and knowing that I share a birthday with a celebration of Madiba is a HUGE honour!”

Spanmandla “So much fun playing Netball, I hope to live like Mandela lived every day. Today reminded us how important it is to care”

Renalda Hoffmann, CEO of Voucher Plus when addressing the children “Always be true to yourself, always know that you live for a greater purpose and that we are here to uplift and inspire – always live the Madiba Legacy…work hard, study hard, love, care and always hope. Where there is hope there is life”

Melisha Singh “It was so wonderful serving food to the children they were so appreciative and the day really turned out a huge success and packed with tremendous fun!”

Nathan Wit of KwaPhenduka Projects “Thank you Voucher Plus for being a sponsor, thank you Tiffany’s Spar for sponsoring food for 20 of the kids and thank you Kyle for making the footy and Netball fields available, what a wonderful initiative and we look forward to many more events like these, we really appreciate Voucher Plus for driving this initiative!”

Happy Mothers Day to all our beautiful Moms

Posted in Leisure and Entertainment


Voucher Plus Blog - Mothers Day
.

It's almost Mother’s Day and I thought as a build up to such a special day a post was well called for. As a teenager of 14 years old, I met Lauren Marshall (back then) and Dane Forman. We immediately clicked and became incredible friends!!!!

Lauren was an amazing friend, a strong dynamic woman, a beautiful bride, wonderful wife and after many many years, it's been so precious watching my friend flourish from teen to woman, to wife (now Lauren Forman) then wow MOTHER!!!! The role of motherhood suites her so beautifully! I'll never forget the night she told us she is pregnant, she was glowing and then I will never forget the day she walked into our lunch date with a pram.... it was strange yet awesome to see my friend in this new chapter of her life!!! I then started admiring Lauren as a mother... she radiates warmth, love, sacrifice, joy and all things that leave one feeling fuzzy inside! I am so proud of the mother she is!

Now with my mother's day campaign I wanted to pay tribute to mothers! I mean my mom is incredible, I am so blessed, but I really wanted to showcase the radiant young mother Lauren is ... to me she is a true celebration of motherhood, therefore I have used some of her and her youngest Sloane Harpers' pics. Watch the video

Special aren't they???

“First my mother, forever my friend" Always remember that to the world, you are a mother - but to your family, you are their entire world! What I love most about a mother, is that Moms are people who know us the best, and still love us the most! On this special day remember that Life began with waking up and loving your mother's face!

Voucher Plus pays a special tribute to all moms, each one of us has a mom whether it be by birth, by love, by bond or by gift but there is truly nothing more special in this world than the sacred beauty of being a mom!

Spoil your mom today, on Mothers Day and every day! Mom's also remember you need shopping spree's too or even if its running errands, buying groceries or booking holidays Voucher Plus is your online companion to Spending less!

Visit Voucher Plus for more info.

Wishing my mom, Lauren and all the moms out there love, spoils and appreciation on such a special day coming up and every day for that matter!


Lots of Love

Valentine’s Day: A Day of Romance

Posted in Leisure and Entertainment

The romantic legends of Valentine's Day!

Every February 14, all around the world, candy, flowers and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. But who is this mysterious saint, and where did these traditions come from? Let’s find out…

The Legend of St. Valentine

The history of Valentine’s Day, and the story of its patron saint, is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance, and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. But who was Saint Valentine, and how did he become associated with this ancient rite?

One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Another legend speaks of the imprisoned Valentine that sent the first “valentine” greeting after he fell in love with a young girl, possibly his jailor’s daughter, who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is vague, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and, most importantly, romantic figure.

Now isn’t that just absolutely romantic!!!! Wow we love the history of Valentine’s Day and all the interesting legends that go with such a special day!

Celebrate Valentine’s Day!

From the luxurious three-course dinner and a night of slow- dancing to fragrant bouquets of flowers and divine chocolates, the big day of love spurs generosity and romance no matter how big or small your budget. However you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day this year, we’ve got a number of Valentine’s Day vouchers you can keep up your sleeve, ready to sweep them off their feet when they least expect it.

Save on gifts at Celestial gift experience, wine from Liquor City, tickets and snacks at Nu Metro or flowers and chocolates from Netflorist, or even getaways and grab the chance to show your loved ones how much they matter to you. Sending flowers or chocolates is a simple and traditional way to make them smile, and with online ordering, you can pay in just a few clicks and have it sent to their home or place of work that same day!

If you’re pushing the boat out, and would like spoil them a little more this year, why don’t you put your chef hat on and cook up a romantic meal for two, using a voucher from Ucook or try out a recipe from our blog before joining the many streets parties outside or how about a romantic weekend away at their favourite holiday destination? 

Get yourself in the mood of love and watch our sweet Voucher Plus Couple's Lunch experience. Click here!

Don't forget to follow us on Social Media and we sure wish you see love everywhere you go!

If you don’t already have a love in your life Voucher Plus has a tip for you “The quickest way to know a woman is to go shopping with her” Marcelene Cox

Voucher Plus Couple Experience

Posted in Leisure and Entertainment

Couples need more days out and quality time together! Share more moments with exciting discounts and savings...click here to watch our Voucher Plus Couple Experience!

Spending enough quality time together enhances open communication, strengthens your bond and builds intimacy. It also sets a good example for your children to take into their own future relationships.

We must realize that spending quality time with our partner is like saving money for a rainy day. Every time you spend a few peaceful moments with your partner, you are building a stronger wall around your relationship against those times when misfortune could have broken it down. Furthermore if you don’t spend time with your partner/spouse you are slowly letting the distance between you grow! So close that gap at all times and ensure you two remain as close as ever!

Here are a few ideas to keep the candle of romance burning bright:

Recreate your first date

Schedule a “first date” and pretend this is the first time you’re going out together...ever! Let Voucher Plus help you out by giving you up to 50% off movies at NuMetro and a free pizza at Col’ Cacchio for dinner. Make a reservation and be sure to dress to impress. Forget about the daily obligations and obstacles at work and stick to date-friendly topics making the evening completely about each other. Share your dreams, what hobby you are dying to do and where your dream destination is to travel together! You never know, you just might learn something new about each other!

Have a fancy night in, bring date night to your lounge!

If heading out to a fancy date just isn’t on the cards right now, bring the dinner date to you. Resolve to feed, bathe and put the kids, if there are any, to bed early one evening, and then get prepped for your fancy night in. Throw on the dress you got for 30% less at Lipsy through Voucher Plus and let your hair down. Light some candles, scatter some pillows on the floor and Save with Voucher Plus on any order from UCOOK! Choose from 9 seasonally inspired recipes every week and have all the ingredients you need to cook delivered to you! Liquor city let’s Voucher Plus Members get wine for up to 15% less.

Couples that train together stay together

We all know this saying and it is quite true! Voucher Plus brings you two free months at Planet Fitness and discounted rates off any memberships you sign up for. A good side-by-side run on the treadmill or track can be an amazing bonding experience. One of the greatest parts of having a good training partner is the ability to share each other's successes. Setting training goals and edging closer and closer to their attainment alongside someone else is very motivating.

Travel Together

Nothing is better than exploring and relaxing together at a destination away from the mundane chores of every day home life. Get out and about with great deals when planning your next getaway, keep in mind that Voucher Plus members get amazing discounts on Travel, Accommodation and even car hire at selected destinations both locally and internationally.

Make it count

When you plan your next big date night, make it count and create special memories! Buy those flowers, chocolates – there are wonderful Voucher Plus Discounts through Netflorist, grab strawberries and cream with your Voucher Plus R20 off at Shoprite and get that beautiful outfit that will make you feel radiant for R300 off at La Senza.

Family bonding time

Mom and Baby, get ready for a day out with dad! As a couple enjoy the beautiful creation you have conceived together and spend some quality time to bond more as parents. Voucher Plus makes it easier to have a day out and about with Momi. Save with Voucher Plus on any order online from Momi Baby Bags! Choose from a wide range of top quality bags to keep all your baby's possessions safe. Grab a

Quick Lunch Together

Are you too tight for time? If you work in the same area, why not grab lunch together for less by Voucher Plus giving you R10 off a Streetwise 2 at KFC or you can get a free meal at Mc Donalds or Nando’s.

Find your dream destination in South Africa

Posted in Dream Destinations

Take a short left in Mzansi

Voucher Plus Blog - Mauritius Holiday Packages

South Africa is boasting of rich diverse culture and our nine provinces uniquely offer you a dream destination to create wonderful memories.

Travel is one of the most popular tick-off items on everyone's bucket list and most people save throughout the year for that dream vacation. Normally when the word “travel” is mentioned the mind races to overseas or the world.
That isn’t bad at all but we encourage and challenge everyone to explore domestically before going to discover the world. Wouldn’t it be great to know South Africa like the back of your hand and be promoting and contributing to our fast growing tourism industry?

The Essence of Budgeting

Winter Must haves

Voucher Plus Blog - Winter Fashion

Therefore, it’s only fitting that Fashion Designers do the same thing when they design a new Fashion range. This ultra-important technique is called colour forecasting.

Everyone expresses themselves through colour throughout the daily course of life. Colour factors into how we convey emotion, identity, and meaning.

So if colour is so fundamental, it only makes sense for brands too adopt a colour strategy that conveys their core values to consumers at a single glance. Unfortunately, colour is also one of the most fluid and frustratingly subjective things to quantify.
