Over a million individuals in South Africa are visually impaired. In partnership with South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind (South African Guide-Dogs Association) and Vitality MoveToGive, you can now use your Vitality reward points and diamonds to help them live a life with independence and dignity.
There are over a million individuals affected by visual impairment in South Africa*. Many of these people experience a loss of independence, motivation and productivity due to a lack of resources and skills that can help them operate optimally in society.
Thankfully, the South African Guide-Dogs Association has been working hard to help the blind and partially sighted in a variety of ways, including raising guide-dogs, daily skills living for visually impaired people and providing assistive devices like canes, to people who are visually impaired, no matter how old or young, affluent or impoverished.
Vitality members with Vitality Active Rewards now have an opportunity to partner with South African Guide-Dogs Association through Vitality MoveToGive, and be part of the incredible work that’s being done by the organisation.
All you have to do is get active to achieve your Vitality exercise goal, or drive well and meet your drive goal to ensure that you get a play on the Vitality gameboard. With the reward points and diamonds you reveal on the gameboard, you can then choose to donate to this Vitality MoveToGive initiative.
These are the MoveToGive donation options available to you on the Discovery app:
- Spend 25 Vitality reward points to help provide assistive devices like canes and money counters to enable visually impaired people to live independently
- Spend 40 Vitality reward points to donate towards daily life skills training sessions for visually impaired children
- Spend 100 Vitality reward points to contribute towards the training of guide-dogs to assist visually impaired people.
- Spend 250 Vitality reward points to help build a new facility to breed guide-dogs for visually impaired people.

Discovery Insure's Impact Alert sends help when you need it most
Wish you had the technology to call for help when you most need it? Discovery Insure's Impact Alert feature can detect when you've been in an accident. If we can't get hold of you immediately, we'll send emergency assistance to your location, while our Vehicle panic button can be used to alert emergency services when you're in your car and need help.
Walking is a great low-impact exercise, helping you strengthen your body and maintain a healthy weight. You can start small, and once you get used to it, challenge yourself slowly and safely. Soon you’ll start enjoying the many health benefits of walking.
Ten years ago, Mpedi Keetse was unfit and unhappy with his body. He started joining mass walks for the fun of it, then got bit by the running bug, and is now training for his seventh Comrades! From ordinary to extraordinary – be inspired by his story.
South African roads are among the most dangerous in the world, with almost 90% of accidents caused by bad driving. But Discovery drivers are improving these stats, one behaviour change at a time.
