October 12 is National Bandana Day and all South African’s are urged to buy a bandana for only R20 in support of The Sunflower Fund.
The Sunflower Fund, a non-profit organisation, has once again teamed up with Pick n Pay and Round Table Southern Africa, including Namibia, with bandanas available at all Pick n Pay stores nationwide.
All funds raised from the bandana sales will go towards assisting The Sunflower Fund in increasing the South African Bone Marrow Registry, which exists to find and match bone marrow stem cell donors to patients who need a transplant. In doing so they provide hope to those suffering from leukaemia and other life threatening blood disorders. Every year thousands of South Africans, mostly children and teenagers, are diagnosed with blood disorders such a leukaemia, marrow failure and aplasia.
“National Bandana Day is our biggest fundraiser and signature event of the year,” said Tina Botha, CEO of The Sunflower Fund. “We encourage and appeal to all South African’s to buy a bandana and wear it to work, university or school on the 12th October.”
This year’s funky bandana design comprises the South African flag colours with the word “Hope” written in our official languages. Share a Little, Save a Life….buy your bandana today and give hope to someone else.
