It’s never too early to start planning for the Casual Day campaign. This year, the date is September 6 and the theme for 2013 is Go Big.

The organisers promise that they are pulling out all the stops to create a Casual Day that is bigger and better than ever, inviting all companies, government departments, schools and organisations that are not yet participants, to join in the fun, because Casual Day puts the fun into fundraising.

Casual Day is the flagship project of the National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities (NCPPDSA), a public benefit organisation mandated to improve education, accessibility and social inclusion for persons with disabilities.

“This year we aim to make a big, if not massive, impact with our Go Big campaign - so whether you wear big hair, big glasses, a big tie, big shoes, or just go big on the number of stickers you wear, anything goes, as long as it’s big,” says Casual Day project leader Celeste Vinassa.

Partner organisations and companies who bulk order their stickers, shirts, caps and marketing collateral should consult the Casual Day website - to see what is in store for them this year. Orders can be made by filling in the forms on the website and making sure the office receives the form.

Casual Day 2013 takes place continued partnership its main beneficiaries and 300 participating organisations dedicated to advancing the rights of and rendering services for persons with disabilities.
