BUSINESSES and individuals are invited to be part of the Casual Day fund-raising initiative - Tekkie Tax.

To participate buy stickers and shoe laces from South Coast Hospice, which will be selling shoe laces for R35, and stickers for R10. Hospice fund-raiser B.T. King said this is a national initiative in support of various charities, including animal, terminally ill people, vulnerable children and disability sectors, etc.

Each sticker represents one of the sectors.

“An individual or a business can purchase stickers from Hospice and then wear takkies and your stickers on a shirt or blouse to work on 27 May - Casual Day. This sticker will indicate what charity you are supporting on the day,” said King.

For every sticker sold, South Coast Hospice gets R4 and for every set of shoe laces sold its get R9.

“Businesses can purchase stickers in bulk and sell them to staff, friends, family members or just people who are prepared to support a charity of choice, for a R10 donation,” she said.

“It does not matter who you support on the day, South Coast Hospice needs the support, so go out and get yourself a sticker,” said King.
