SEPTEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER
Together we can help Kerala & Kodagu to get back on feet.
Why now, after all these weeks? Some of you might ask. But let’s ask ourselves: are our ‘zero-hour’ donations enough to improve the livelihood of people affected by the flood, at a structural level? The need of the hour is to provide sustenance for our kith and kin, many of whose lives may not be the same anymore. Which is why we are keeping our donation portal open. You can contribute here

Our first integrated Food Card Program is here!
We are happy to announce that our Gift Card Processing solution is powering the Food Card Program (FCP) at Rozzana’s NHSM College in their Kolkata & Durgapur campuses, as well as at the IQ City college in Durgapur. Qwikcilver FCP is an integrated POS solution that supports prepaid card transactions, without the need for credit card swiping devices at POS terminals. The program allows hostel students to avail their daily meals at mess/canteen against advance payments, along with the admission fees. It currently serves about 5000 students across three locations, spread over two cities. Further plans are on to extend the program to other campuses of Rozzana, in addition to a couple of our existing clientele and prospects.

The ‘Ghar Maange More’ campaign
For years, Grocery shopping has fallen under the women of the households, with the men largely playing a supporting role. Thus, the activity that was supposed to bring families together, ended up as a chore. The team at Woohoo wanted to challenge this belief, make shopping a collaborative, inclusive - even joyful - activity. ‘Ghar maange more’ was born. The campaign sought to leverage the power of our gifting platform, to encourage men to participate in the monthly grocery shopping exercise. It gave the men, and also women, a window to gift their family members, and thus acknowledge & reciprocate the latter’s efforts. Woohoo regularly runs such campaigns.
