Casual Day raised R28 million

20 April 2015 No Comment

Casual Day is the flagship project of the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in South Africa (NCPPDSA).
They lobby for the rights of persons with disabilities at both the government and corporate level and they acknowledged the selfless work of their ambassadors and the media, who helped spread the message.
Casual Day ambassador and disability rights activist Terry Ann Adams last year took up the challenge to educate South Africans about disability.
Since 1995 Casual Day has made it possible for the NCPPDSA to fulfil its mandate of creating a fully accessible and inclusive society for all, raising R223 million.
Project leader, Celeste Vinassa, said that they raised R28 million in 2014 which was collected via a donation for a R10 sticker and would benefit 500 schools and organisations countrywide.
Casual Day this year is on 4 September 2015 and their aim is to spread the message of the social impact of the funds.
