2016-05-04 06:00

NATIONAL Tekkie Tax Day takes place on Friday 27 May this year. This campaign benefits 11 national organisations representing over 1 000 non-profit organisations.
The campaign started in 2013 when some of South Africa’s biggest and most accountable welfare organisations joined forces:

• Epilepsy SA

• Child Welfare SA

• SOS Children's Villages

• Choc (Childhood Cancer Foundation)

• Special Olympics SA

• Cansa

• Imisebeyelanga Services

• Meals on Wheels


• NG Welsyn


Tekkie Tax has raised more than R13,7 million and the impact on ground level is remarkable.

Stickers (R10 each) are available at all Toys R Us and Babies R us stores and Tekkie Tag shoelaces (R35) are available from all Clicks 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

Walk the extra mile for a welfare organisation close to your heart by wearing your sticker of choice on Friday, 27 May and spunk up your tekkies with a pair of funky Tekkie Tag shoelaces.
There is really no excuse – put your best foot forward and support­ National Tekkie Tax Day.
