BREAK open your piggy bank and prepare to head to Pick n Pay in August to make sure you have your Tube of Hope (Tope) in support of The Sunflower Fund on Sunflower Day.
“For the first time The Sunflower Fund is offering a first prize to the value of R20 000 to the school that shows the greatest Sunflower spirit on Sunflower Day, which takes place on Friday, 16 September,” said fund CEO, Alana James.
The winning school will receive a donation of goods, of the school’s choice, to the value of R20 000. The second prize is goods to the value of R10 000, the third prize to the value of R5 000.
Schools can visit www.sunflower fund.org.za to complete the online entry, ensure that pupils have purchased a Tope and take photos and upload them onto The Sunflower Fund Facebook page.
The greatest number of “likes” on the photo, along with the decision of a panel of judges, will determine the winners. Points will be awarded for the number of people participating and the most innovative use of the Tope.
“I am sure you are wondering what a Tope is. A Tope is an affordable, multipurpose article of clothing that can be worn as a headband, mask, scarf, cap or armband. It can be used for a wide variety of sports or outdoor activities and will be available in six eye-catching colours.
“The Tope offers practical functionality for the family and gives wearers the opportunity to show their support for this important cause. It will be available in a children’s size for R20 and an adult size for R25 and will go on sale at Pick n Pay stores nationwide in August,” said James.
