South Africans love to have fun and they love it even more if it means when they are giving back to communities and building society.

“This year was an exceptional year for Casual Day, the whole country seemed to be dressed in green or wearing a sticker,” says Therina Wentzel, the national director of the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD).

“Thank you South Africa for your incredible support of Casual Day. It is a very special day indeed, thank you for showing your hearts and for celebrating diversity with persons with disabilities.”

The NCPD hosts the annual Casual Day fundraiser, which is SA’s largest and most popular event of its kind in the disability sector.

All the funds that are raised on Casual Day, go to support the needs of persons with disabilities directly benefiting persons with disabilities and the larger community.
