TEKKIE Tax was launched in 2013 and has since increased in popularity as well as exposure for the cause. Tekkie Tax can be broken down into different categories, each representing a different beneficiary sector. Categories include animals, children and education. With over R30 million raised since the campaign’s inception, it is evident that everyone has some cause they wish to support.

The IIE’s Varsity College Pietermaritzburg recently ran its Tekkie Tax campaign for the fifth successive year and was met with enthusiasm from both students and staff, raising a sum of R1 300 for the education sector of the Tekkie Tax campaign.

Sonya Nursoo, Student Relations manager at the IIE’s Varsity College Pietermaritzburg, said: “On the last Friday of May, all staff who purchased their stickers came to work in their freshly washed and brightly coloured tekkies, bonding with students who had done the same. It has been an absolute pleasure to bear witness to the support that Tekkie Tax has received on campus, and we hope to see such avid support in future.” — Supplied
