Casual Day Theme 2019: Time to Shine with Persons with Disabilities

We are inviting YOU to go with your glow on Casual Day 2019… from the sparkle in your eyes to the bright neon of your outfits. To encourage everyone to shine their light and take up their rights! No longer are persons with disabilities to be relegated to the shadows, this year we call on YOU to ... stand out… to be visible… to live loud and be seen!

For Casual Day 2018 South Africans from all walks of life donned their heroic capes and raised a record R31 million for persons with disabilities. Even now as we still feel the afterglow of the success of last year, we look back on Casual Day 2018 with pride, heroism in our hearts and one question on our minds: How do we outshine that?

This simple question was to become the spark that generated this year’s theme: TIME TO SHINE!

And please note that it’s not just any time to shine. This year we’ll be celebrating 25 years of Casual Days and 80 years of the NCDP’s sterling service to our country. All in all, we’re talking shining examples, leading lights and brightened futures.

The theme of TIME TO SHINE sets out to achieve many things, to highlight and showcase the brilliance that’s created when South Africans unite behind a truly great cause… to encourage people to shine their light and take up their rights.

We are inviting YOU to go with your glow on Casual Day 2019… from the sparkle in your eyes to the bright neon of your outfits. No longer are persons with disabilities to be relegated to the shadows! This year we call on you to  … stand out… to be visible… to live loud and be seen alongside fellow South Africans.

Fortunately for us, neon is also a top fashion trend of the year and we have every intention of lighting up the towns and cities of South Africa with the brightest colours to convey the most brilliant of messages with our vibey merchandise for 2019 including Golf Shirts, Bucket hats and Caps.

Not forgetting, of course, your ever important Casual Day sticker.

The R31 million that was raised in 2018 is already spreading light and making an impact across the land… from Limpopo to Muizenberg and from Port Nolloth to St Lucia… a truly heroic achievement. View our impact report here.

Join us on Casual Day, Friday 6 September when it’s TIME TO SHINE WITH PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES.
