It’s almost time for Casual Day!

What is Casual Day all about?

Casual Day is all about diversity, we live in a world where everyone belongs and is valued, so celebrate Casual Day with your friends, family, and colleagues and celebrate diversity.

Celebrate Diversity gives you the chance to show us who you really are, and what you celebrate most. Your national dress? Your favourite soccer team? Your fabulous stylish sense of fashion? The trick is to do it all with a splash of green, to remind us of summer grass, positive growth, hope and fun, and enjoying who we all are. Let’s celebrate our diversity.

Casual Day is a project cantered around inclusion and equity for persons with disabilities.
A key goal of Casual Day is to build a society that not only embraces diversity but actively celebrates it. The constitution of South Africa enshrines the rights of all people in our country and affirms the democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom.

This year all South Africans from all walks of life are called to celebrate our differences and embrace each other for our uniqueness and significance. By buying your Casual Day sticker you are part of a puzzle of thousands of active South African citizens committed to the empowerment and upliftment of persons with disabilities.
Our colour for 2017 is a vibrant, grassy green – the colour of new life, renewal, vitality and harmony. Fresh green is also associated with springtime which is when the big event happens.

What to wear with your Casual Day sticker?

If it’s gorgeous or if its growing or glowing as long as its green and makes the world know who you are. Dress to show off your uniqueness and give it a go in something fresh and green.
Remember that your most important accessory on Casual Day is your STICKER – available this year in five bright puzzle pieces.
