Wear your tekkies for a good cause

29 May 2015 is Tekkie Tax Day!

Jack Parow: Animals ambassador
We know you love your tekkies more than your work or school shoes... So why now swap them for a comfy pair of tekkies on Friday 29 May 2015? Plus, it's for a good cause – it's Tekkie Tax Day!

All you have to do is:

Choose the sector you want to support and YES, you may choose more than one.
Basic Family Care
Disability or

Then, get your R10 sticker (that is the tax you pay) and wear your tekkies. You can also get a pair of funky shoelaces called 'tekkie tags', if you like. You can get the stickers and 'tekkie tags' from any of the participating welfare organisations or you can order what you need directly from their website.

The project is supported by five well know South African celebrities who will be the official ambassadors for National Tekkie Tax Day this year.

Sade Giliberti: Basic Family Care ambassador

Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow will be the Animals ambassador, Masterchef star Sade Giliberti the Basic Family Care ambassador, Sorina Erasmus (the Flooze) the Children ambassador, much loved Expresso presenter Katlego Maboe the Disability ambassador, and the queen of dance Tebogo Kgobokoe the Education ambassador.
