Casual Day in support of persons living with disabilities

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 3 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 NGOs 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).
