There is only a few weeks left before Tekkie Tax Day on Friday, 26 May.

Once more there is the option of jazzing up ones’ tekkies with a pair of funky Tekkie Tag shoelaces on the day.

National Tekkie Tax Day has been part of the South African calendar for the last four years.

This day once again allows the opportunity to show with “your feet where your heart lies”.

More than R22 million has so far made a remarkable impact on ground level since its beginning in 2013.

Marieta Kemp, director of Social Services of the South African Women’s Federation (SAVF), said: “The large number of welfare ­organisations involved help us to keep the cost structure low and this will ensure that the maximum donations can be used to deliver our services on grass roots level.”

Choose your sticker for a cause close to your heart, jazz up your tekkies with a funky pair of our Tekkie Tag shoelaces and you are ready for National Tekkie Tax Day.

In order to participate in this year’s campaign one needs to buy the stickers for R10 each, and Tekkie Tag shoelaces for R35 at all Clicks stores, Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores.

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

There are currently 12 national beneficiaries and they represent more than 1 000 local non-profit organisations.

The beneficiaries are Epilepsy SA, Meals on Wheels, Child Welfare South Africa, SOS Children’s Villages, Childhood Cancer Foundation (CHOC), Special Olympics SA, CANSA, Imisebeyelanga Services, Vrystaat Versorging in Aksie (VVA), NG Welsyn, Endurocad, SAVF and various ani- mal welfare organisations.

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