Earn Gems by playing your part

first_imgGEM volunteers not only help uplift the communities for which they work but also earn Gems that can be redeemed for airtime, data, pre-paid electricity and movie tickets. (Image: GEM Project)GEM Project, an app that links volunteers to good causes, has partnered with Play Your Part in charitable events that aim to uplift disadvantaged communities.GEM – which stands for Go the Extra Mile – has the potential to curb unemployment. In many cases, volunteers are unemployed people who spend their time contributing to their communities. And with GEM’s reward system, the volunteers are guaranteed to earn something for their good deeds.When volunteers complete a good deed, they are eligible to receive a reward via the app, which is called a Gem. These Gems can be redeemed for products such as airtime, data, pre-paid electricity and even movie tickets. But co-founder David Shields makes it clear that Gems are not a means of financial support. “Rewards are to be seen as a gesture of goodwill, not payment.”The GEM app is a call for all South Africans to become active citizens and play their part in improving the lives of fellow South Africans, says Brand South Africa’s general manager of marketing, Sithembile Ntombela. “We hope that the nation will continue to contribute to positive change because a nation of people who care deeply for one another, and the environment in which they live, is beneficial for everyone.”GEM has partnered with Play Your Part on many occasions since the two began working together in July 2015. Most notable were the events for Nelson Mandela Day, visits to Ethembeni Children’s Home and cleanups at Akani Primary School in Diepsloot and Ark Animal Centre in northern Johannesburg.To find out how you can volunteer for one of GEM’s projects, check out the GEM website.
