Friday 4 September
Casual Day, SA’s foremost fundraiser for persons with disabilities, raised R28 million countrywide last year. Sponsored by the Edcon Group, Casual Day is owned and managed by The National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in South Africa.
The 2015 Casual Day campaign this week kicked off its activities with the arrival of the stickers from the printers. Schools, organisations and corporates will be able to put in their bulk orders for stickers now – and put the date on their calenders.
The theme for 2015 is ‘Spring into Action’ – so take your inspiration from the birds and the bees, the skies of blue, the colours of the rainbow, the blossoms on the trees and the minty hue of new leaves. Our colour for the year is refreshing, zingy mint.
Collect five stickers at R10ea
This year we will be producing five different collector’s stickers, each with a different image. So you can wear a bouquet of stickers to celebrate your commitment to improving the world for persons with disabilities.
Casual Day is on Friday 4 September 2015.
Casual Day provides the country with the opportunity to show their solidarity with persons with disabilities, at the same time enjoying teambuilding and camaraderie with their fellow participants. It gives South Africans the opportunity to be creative and have fun while contributing to the betterment of society. It is community spirit in action.
Your R10 in action
Help us to spread the message of the social impact of the funds. Your R10 in Action will highlight where the Casual Day money is spent. The national beneficiaries of Casual Day, through their affiliates and branches all over South Africa, provide services to persons with disabilities.
Casual Day is a way for the disability sector to speak with one voice about ushering in a society that values human rights, inclusion, diversity and universal access to education for all its citizens.
