Casual DayYou can be a superhero  on Casual Day on Friday, 7 September 2018.

Simply buy a sticker from Autism Eastern Cape, or one of the participating NGOs which are selling the stickers, for R10 and dress up as your superhero of choice for the day.

Autism Eastern Cape will be able to retain a portion of the R10, while the balance of money raised goes to the National Council  of and for Persons with Disabilities, the national umbrella body for people with disabilities.

Casual Day is South Africa’s leading fundraising and awareness campaign for persons with disabilities and is the flagship project of the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities  (NCPD).

Launched in 1995, Casual Day is an awareness and fundraising campaign benefiting persons with disabilities.

Each year on the first Friday of September, South Africans are encouraged to go to work or school dressed differently – either dress up or dress down – and to wear the official Casual Day sticker to show their support for persons with disabilities.

The campaign encourages the public to contribute financially through a small donation of R10 for a sticker, and at the same time lobbies for the full inclusion and equity of persons with disabilities.

So, not only does it raise funds, but it also raises awareness of the challenges and potential of the community in a fun way!
