It is that time of year again! Casual Day is just around the corner so make sure to get your stickers early this year. Celebrate diversity with persons with disabilities by donating just R10 and wearing the Casual Day sticker on Friday, 7 September. Make this Casual Day a memorable one by dressing up in your most unique outfit and proudly standing out from the crowd.

Casual Day is an exciting time of year for everyone, with staff members and our service-users competing with one another to dress up in the brightest and most humorous outfits. A small donation of R10 goes a long way, both inside and outside of your workplace, collected through stickers. The National project has raised over R300 million over the last 22 years, collecting R28 million last year. The real success can be seen by the impact it has on the lives of persons with disabilities, so let us work to raise even more money this year. 

Casual Day is not only an opportunity to fundraise, but it provides opportunities to get everyone involved, from corporate comradeship, community support, to NGO participation. It benefits 500 organisations that provide services to persons with disabilities. The funds raised from Casual Day are utilized for various purposes, including job creation, poverty alleviation, social upliftment, housing, education and training, improvement in accessibility and initiatives that serve to fully integrate persons with disabilities into the community.

HOW DO COMPANIES GET INVOLVED?

People can show their support for persons with disabilities by participating as a team. It would be great if your company could appoint a Casual Day coordinator who will order and receive the Casual Day stickers and some posters for the office.  People can dress up as everyday heroes if the company is willing to relax its dress code on the day, but otherwise just wearing the sticker should do the trick.  Purchasing your stickers from Cape Mental Health will ensure that we receive vital income to support our mental health care services to children and adults with mental disability in poorly resourced communities.

To help you with the promotional process, marketing materials such as posters, counter cards, wobblers, and leaflets can be ordered free of charge. More information regarding materials and order forms will be provided if, and when, you decide to participate. Please contact Rene Minnies @ rene@cmh.org.za for an order form to get your stickers and promo materials.

We are very excited for this year’s campaign and would love for you to help us celebrate and support those with psychiatric disabilities!

I look forward to following up with you and hope that Casual Day will enjoy your support.
