In a world where people constantly strive to fulfil their dreams, there are those who face overwhelming odds.
Those who rely on the compassion and kindness of strangers to survive. Yet, as people go through their daily lives, those in need are often forgotten. Their respective plights remaining hidden within the shadows of society.
But we as a society can make a difference. Without deviating from the course of our daily lives. How can we make a positive impact on the lives of others without sacrificing our time?
We can make a difference by participating in International Tekkie Tax Day on May 31. A day which will see several non-profit organisations reach out to those in need.
Having started in 2013, Tekkie Tax Day is growing to become one of South Africa’s biggest charitable drives.
At present, there are 12 National Alliance Partners, representing scores of non-profit organisations. These include the various SPCA Organisations, SAVF, FAMSA, Lifeline SA, various Child Welfare organisations, SOS Children’s Villages, Childline SA, Epilepsy SA, Down Syndrome SA and CANSA.
How can you participate in Tekkie Tax Day?
Klein Spoortjies Pre Primary School is selling a number of Tekkie Tax Day memorabilia for the community to purchase. These products include:
- Bring Hope stickers
- Tekkie Tax ‘hickies’ silicone laces
“The nice thing about Tekkie Tax Day is you can choose which charitable cause you want to support when purchasing any of the products,” says Steph Campher of Klein Spoortjie.
As this is the first time Klein Spoortjies is participating in Tekkie Tax Day by supplying merchandise, the community is encouraged to support the school in its drive.
“In the build-up to the day, people and businesses can purchase the shoelaces and shirts prior to the day and wear it every Friday. Thereby, making it fun, as you create awareness for Tekkie Tax Day and the cause you are supporting,” says Douwlene Griffin of Klein Spoortjies.
Determined to create awareness and gain support for the upcoming day, Campher is also looking at the community to make the day extra special.
“We would love if members of the community can sponsor R100 and purchase shirts for the children of Morester Children’s Home, so they can also be a part of the initiative.”
In the hopes of creating a brighter tomorrow and ensuring the less fortunate are taken care of, Klein Spoortjies needs your help.
