NATIONAL Bandana Day has been launched and will take place on 12 October­. People are encouraged to buy their bandanas to show support for people with serious blood disorders like leukaemia.

Corné Krige and his family, Benito Vergotine, Nonala Tose and Liezel van der Westhuizen can be seen featured in an advertisement on TV appealing to the public to also pledge their support.

The bandana design is fresh, distinctive and is a trendy fashion accessory. Available in eight different colours, it appeals to everyone from the young to the young at heart! Bandanas are now avaiable from from Pick n Pay, Round Table, selected Makro stores and the online shop, Zando. Funds raised through National Bandana Day will go towards paying for the expensive tissue typing (DNA) tests for new stem-cell donors to join the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR).

Behind the campaign, stand cancer patients who face a very daunting task of fighting for their lives. This unfortunately, is a reality for countless people and for many - their only hope is to receive a life-saving stem-cell transplant.

“Please support this campaign and help make a difference as together, we can save more lives. We cannot do this without you,” said Tarryn Corlett, CEO of The Sunflower Fund.
