GenerosiTrees to Inspire the Spirit of Generosity this Festive Season 

Donate a toy to a child in need under a Cadbury Dairy Milk GenerosiTree

 When Cadbury Dairy Milk discovered that there were millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa – and that the overwhelming majority of them had never known the joy of owning their own toy, book or game, we wanted to make a difference – we enlisted the help of generous South Africans and launched The Little Generosity Shop in May 2019. 

 So amazing was the response - with more than 90 000 compassionate donations pouring in - that we’ve decided to try make the festive season a little brighter for even more of these incredibly deserving children, with Cadbury Dairy Milk GenerosiTrees. 

 The items collected by The Little Generosity Shop were donated to various beneficiaries, including the SOS Children's Village (SOS CV), an independent, non-governmental organization that offers family-like care for children and young people who have lost or are at risk of losing parental care. As a childcare and development organization, SOS CV also advocates for the rights of South Africa's most marginalised children. 

 Big news….

From 12 November, the GenerosiTree activations will be travelling the country and giving South Africans the opportunity to show that there’s ‘a glass and a half in everyone’ by giving them the chance to donate the items that were once precious to them; teddies to tricycles and books to board games; to this incredibly noble cause. 

The GenerosiTree activations will be at the following venues on these dates: 

 Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban (12 – 18 November)

 Tyger Valley Shopping Centre in Cape Town (26 November – 2 December) 

 Mall of Africa in Johannesburg (10 – 16 December) 

All venues will be rewarding Generosity withCadbury Dairy Milk slab. There’s also an opportunity to make donations or purchase in-store and online at select Toys R Us stores, with a ‘glass & a half’ reward for their open-heartedness. 

How the Cadbury Dairy Milk GenerosiTrees activations work:  

Check in at the entrance to the GenerosiTree activation and log your pre-loved toy, book or game for wrapping. One toy, book or game will be exchanged for a Cadbury Dairy Milk slab and up to five slabs for five or more donated items. You can then add even more Generosity by visiting the messaging station, where you can write a message on a tag and attach it to your donation - each child who receives a toy will also get one of these personal and heart-felt messages. 

 From there, a visit to the Reindeer Room or Santa’s Workshop offers great photo opportunities that you can download and share to help spread the spirit of Generosity, online. Each room offers a unique and immersive experience – the Reindeer Room is decorated with a night sky, lit up with twinkling stars, while you can take pictures with Santa himself in the hustle and bustle of Santa’s Workshop.  

Toys R Us Donations: 

Consumers who would love to share their spirit of Generosity, but who can’t make it to the three malls which will be home to the GenerosiTrees, can also visit select Toys R Us stores or simply go to the Toys R Us website – to make a donation. 

For donations at select Toys R Us stores, simply drop off your pre-loved toy – or something new from the Toys R Us selection if you prefer – in the marked collection bin and claim a Cadbury Dairy Milk slab in return.

If you’d like to make an online donation, visit and select an item from the Toys R Us catalogue. At checkout, select the option for ‘Cadbury Dairy Milk GenerosiTrees Donation’ and the donated item will be channelled to the Cadbury team to add to the collection. Once the checkout process is complete, you’ll receive a voucher to go claim your Cadbury Dairy Milk slab at a Toys R Us store.
