It’s time to pay your Tekkie Tax

2015-05-21 06:00

IT’S that time of the year again when you can kick off your high heels, school shoes or boots and swap them for your comfy pair of tekkies - all for a good cause.

Friday, May 29, is Tekkie Tax Day.

Choose the sector or sectors you want to support, from among Animals, Basic Family Care, Children, Disability or Education, get your R10 sticker, which is the tax you pay, and wear your tekkies.

You can also get a pair of funky shoelaces called “tekkie tags”.

The stickers and “tekkie tags” are available directly from Epilepsy SA, or at Shoprite. Each sticker costs R10.

The campaign benefits 16 of the biggest and most accountable national non-governmental organisations in the country, representing more than 1 500 local organisations.
