A Casual Celebration

13 March 2010 No Comment

Casual Day exceeded all expectations by raising over R17.7 million for persons with disabilities in the 2009 campaign.

This amount was made public at the Casual Day Show and Tell functions hosted across South Africa.

This the result of every R10 donation made by South Africans country wide that wore a Casual Day sticker on 4 September last year.

The funds were distributed to the national beneficiaries, The National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in SA, SA Federation for Mental Health, DPSA, Deaf Federation of SA (Deafsa), Epilepsy SA and SA National Council for the Blind.

The funds will be used to provide additional resources, assist with daily operations and ongoing maintenance of more than 400 local NGO’s affiliated to the six National Beneficiaries of the project.

Thank you to all South Africans for your generosity and support. Your contributions have managed to ease the challenges faced by individuals living with disabilities.

The 2010 Casual Day on Friday 3 September 2010 encourages people to “dress for laughs”.

Wear something funny, ravishing or utterly ridiculous. As long as you wear you Casual Day sticker and show your support for persons with disabilities.
