THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SUPPORTERS BIG & SMALL

Wow! What a celebration we had for our 25th Birthday in 2019! We certainly all shone brightly together, raising much needed awareness and funds for Persons with Disabilities all over South Africa. With most of our Thank You Events cancelled due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we would like to share with you a video recap of last year’s campaign (left) which also shows a few of our beneficiaries and impact of the funds raised by Casual Day. Enjoy!

Together, we have raised over R334 million over the past 25 years for persons with disabilities

As the NCPD’s flagship awareness and fundraising project, Casual Day has grown into the most prominent and successful social advocacy campaign in South African history, having raised  R370 000 000 since 1995 (including the record R31 million raised in 2018). Casual Day is a widely celebrated national campaign that occurs annually – this year, join us on 3 December 2020 which is also International Day of Persons with Disabilities!

The public’s contribution of R20 for a Casual Day sticker entitles them to express their individual interpretation of the annual theme through their outfits, which also allows them to show their support for the full inclusion and equity of persons with disabilities. The 2020 theme is Side by Side for Equality (more here).

We are blessed to be supported by the generous South African public, over 800 companies, 400+ NGOs and approximately 200 schools that consistently renew their participation every year. The proceeds of Casual Day are channeled to disability schools, homes, places of care and employment through our beneficiary organisations providing training, skills development, assistive devices and advocacy services to persons with disabilities from small towns to large cities all over SA. Casual Day also supports the disability units of 11 universities, the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the South African National Defence Force (SANDF).

HOW IT WORKS
Each year Casual Day prints and distributes over 3 million stickers in order to fundraise via participating retailers, NGOs, Schools and government departments. Participating NGOs and Special Schools immediately retain a portion of the sticker donation received which helps them with their running costs. These NGOs represent a variety of disability organisations all across South Africa. Participants are further able to fundraise through sales of Casual Day official merchandise including (but not limited to) Golf Shirts, Caps and Bucket hats.
OUR IMPACT
Casual Day is a lifeline to over 400 NGOs and Associations for persons with Disabilities all over South Africa. Our impact is tangible and far reaching.
NCPD GOVERNANCE OF THE PROJECT
Casual Day subscribes to the The Independent Code of Governance for Non-Profit Organisations in South Africa which was developed collectively by civil society organisations to promote good governance, high standards and best practice amongst NPOs.
