Casual Day returns again in 2022 with its theme #ICelebrateSA for its 28th year. Run by the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities, Casual Day aims to raise funds for the organisation to support people with disabilities. This is done through the sales of Casual Day stickers and other merchandise, which includes shirts, caps, bucket hats and limited edition face masks.
This year, the theme for Casual Day aims to celebrate South Africa and its people. The organisation states:
“Our gratitude goes to our loyal supporters who have over the years assisted us in raising more than R411 million for persons with disabilities. A special thank you to supporters big and small who participated in last year’s Casual Day and helped us make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities during some of our country’s hardest times. And now… slowly but surely, the green shoots of positivity are making their way back to the light!”
“Negative narratives about South Africa are not the whole story of our beloved country. With so much holding us down, now is the time to find our strength and joy and rise up! This year Casual Day project owners, the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD), have decided to have a celebration! So, our Casual Day theme for 2022 is… #ICelebrateSA!”
“We want to start a conversation about everything going right for you and our country! So make your voice heard and join a chorus of South Africans highlighting the good and great in their lives.”
Participants of Casual Day are urged to reflect on what makes South Africa special, perhaps the rich cultural heritage, Malva pudding or the renowned friendliness of South Africans.
If you would like to participate, you can order stickers or merchandise from QASA. Contact the organisation at firstname.lastname@example.org at 031 767 0352 to enquire.
