Casual Day 2012
The 18th Casual Day, providing support for people with disabilities will take place on Friday, 7 September 2012.
This years theme:
“Get on Board”
Captains and sailors, with your crew
Wear a sticker or two, and something blue.
Together we take to the high seas
“Kom aan Boord”
Kom aan boord,
Die behoefte is groot,
Kry jou plakker gou,
En dra iets blou.
How to get your sea legs
Dress like a sailor, captain or pirate. We don’t mind if you manage a bank, a second hand car dealership or are the President of the World if you want to dress like a mermaid on Casual Day, do it – – just get on board!
If you feel a bit like a fish out of water wearing an entire get-up, then just wear blue. Any shade will do – from sea green to baby blue, from aqua to teal to indigo, it’s all good, just get on board!
Everyone loves a uniform! Now is your chance to be the captain of your ship and navigate the waters from your desk to your boss’s office. Ask for that raise, so that you can afford an extra Casual Day sticker on Friday, 7th September. And whilst you’re there, tell your boss to participate too, by wearing a sticker or two.
We can assure you, if you come out of your shell on Casual Day, you’ll have a whale of a time.
Please contact Sophie Baloyi now on 011 646 8331 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order for stickers.
Your donation of R10 will make a huge difference in the lives of South Africans living with disabilities.
Casual Day is the biggest fundraising and awareness creating project for persons with disabilities in South Africa. Every year on the first Friday of September we ask people to dress differently than they normally would, and to wear the official Casual Day sticker to show their support.
The following National Welfare Organisations are beneficiaries of Casual Day:
- The National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in SA (NCPPDSA)
- SA Federation for Mental Health
- Disabled People South Africa (DPSA)
- Deaf Federation of SA (DEAFSA)
- Epilepsy SA
- SA National Council for the Blind
These organisations represent about 400 different schools,
homes and workshops for persons with disabilities. Every year more than 200 local welfare organisations participate in this project and raise funds for their own needs via the infrastructure of the project.
