Welcome to Casual Day!

South Africa’s favourite fundraising and advocacy campaign for Persons with Disabilities

Changing lives, one sticker at a time

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!

History and Impact

The project has a long and respected history of fundraising and increasing awareness.
 
Casual Day is a prominent and successful social advocacy campaign in South African history, having raised over R404 million+ since 1994. We are supported by thousands of members of the public who purchase their stickers from participating retail stores, participating companies, our 700+ beneficiary NPOs and schools that renew their participation every year.
 
The proceeds of the donations are channeled to persons with disabilities at schools, homes and workshops represented by the participating beneficiary organisations. The project also supports the disability units of 11 universities, the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the South African National Defense Force (SANDF).
