Welcome to Casual Day!
South Africa’s favourite fundraising and advocacy campaign for Persons 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 1994, Casual Day is an awareness and fundraising campaign benefiting persons with disabilities. Each year, South Africans are encouraged to wear the official Casual Day sticker and merchandise to show their support for persons with disabilities.
The campaign encourages the public to contribute financially through a small donation of R20 for a sticker, and at the same time lobbies for the full inclusion and equity of persons with disabilities. So, not only does Casual Day raise funds, but it also raises awareness in a fun way!
