Casual Day 2017
I’m taking a break from writing about my recent trip to Ghana to share a few updates on other exciting experiences– but don’t fret, I still have more to share on Ghana!
Did you know that Friday, 1 September is Casual Day? The day when South Africans unite to support persons with disabilities? And that all you need to do to participate in this fun event is to buy one of the 5 bright and funky puzzle piece stickers from any participating outlet or organisation?
Casual Day is the brainchild of the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) and is South Africa’s foremost fundraising event promoting diversity and raising awareness of the abilities of persons with disabilities. Casual Day has been held annually for the past 23 years and this year looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!
The theme for this year is Celebrate Diversity with Persons with Disabilities And the theme colour is green – the colour of summer grass, and positive growth, of hope and fun! So, whatever you choose to dress up in for Casual Day, try to have a splash of green in there as well!
Here’s where you can get hold of your Casual Day stickers – your entry ticket into the fun!

I’m honoured to be serving as a Casual Day Ambassador again this year. As an ambassador my role is to promote the aims of Casual Day and help to raise awareness in the community. It’s a role I believe in passionately – and I hope you’ll be willing to come on board and join us on Friday
So, roll on Casual Day – Friday,1 September, 2017!
