Money raised by the 2016 Tekkie Tax Campaign has reportedly been used on big things and on small things, all regarded as important things.

Members of the public have been presented with a breakdown on what had happened to the money donated in 2016’s campaign and how the donations have touched many lives.

It just goes to show how much of a difference buying a sticker and a pair of shoelaces can make.
