It’s time for Tekkie Tax

2016-05-25 06:00

ON Friday, May 27, it is time again for the annual Tekkie Tax Day and this year the National Tekkie Tax Day will be celebrating their 4th year on the South African fundraising calendar.

There are 11 national beneficiaries this year and together they represent more than 1 000 local organisations.

This fun and funky campaign is the perfect vehicle to make a difference in South Africa and it gives citizens the opportunity to change people’s and animal’s lives for the better.

Supporters can purchase Tekkie Tax stickers at only R10 each or brighten up their takkies with a pair of Tekkie Tag shoelaces for R35 per pair.

Annelise de Jager, patron of Tekkie Tax Day, says, “Let’s stand together and show with our feet that we want to make a difference in our beautiful country.”

Buy Tekkie Tag shoelaces at any Clicks store or just a sticker at any ToysRUs or BabiesRUs. There are also many local welfare organisations selling them.

For more information about Tekkie Tax, visit or contact 012 663 8181.
