Welcome to Casual Day! South Africa's favourite fundraising & advocacy campaign for Persons with Disabilities.
An all-inclusive and equitable society where the human rights of all are upheld and protected.
Casual Day is the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD)’s flagship awareness and fundraising project. Casual Day is a widely celebrated national campaign that occurs annually in South Africa, this year on Friday 1 September. The public’s contribution of R20.00 for a Casual Day sticker entitles them to express their individual interpretation of the yearly theme through their outfits, showing their support for the full inclusion and equity of persons with disabilities.
Casual Day is now the most prominent and successful social advocacy campaign in South African history, having raised over R404 million+ since 1995. We are supported by thousands of members of the public who purchase their stickers from participating retail stores, participating companies, our 600+ 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 Defence Force (SANDF).
Our Impact over 29 Years
Your Casual Day donations are channeled nationally to those in need via care homes, food gardens, women and youth programmes (including GBV), skills workshops and educational centers while providing inclusive employment, assistive devices, advocacy, transport and universal access services. Here’s a snapshot of our impact since we started in 1995 at the dawn of South Africa’s democracy.
