Let your feet speak for your heart

NATIONAL Tekkie Tax Day has been part of the South African calendar for the past four years – this year the date is May 26.
The campaign started in 2013 when a few of South Africa’s biggest and most accountable welfare organisations joined forces.

There are 12 national beneficiaries, who now benefit and they represent more than 1 000 local non-profit organisations.

Epilepsy SA, Meals on Wheels, Child Welfare SA, SOS Children's Villages, CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation), Special Olympics, SA CANSA, Imisebeyelanga Services­ VVA, NG Welsyn Endurocad SAVF and various local animal welfare organisations.

Tekkie Tax has raised more than R22 million and the impact on ground level is remarkable. There is really no excuse not to participate in this year’s campaign.

Stickers are R10 each and Tekkie Tag shoelaces are R35, available from all Clicks, Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores.

There are also more than 250 participating non-profit organisations selling these items and together they aim to convince every South African to be part of the fun.

Orders can also be placed online via the Tekkie Tax website www.tekkietax.co.za

Help these welfare organisations to protect the vulnerable by wearing your sticker of choice on Friday, May 26 and spunk up your tekkies with a pair of funky Tekkie Tag shoelaces.
