Casual Day 2020
WHAT IS CASUAL DAY?
Casual Day is a project that provides a life line to more than 500 non-profit organisations such GPAPD in order that they may continue with essential services to persons with disabilities. The project was initiated in 1994 and annually comes up with exciting themes to help celebrate the day and this year’s theme is SIDE BY SIDE FOR EQUALITY.
We challenge South Africans from all walks of life to celebrate our differences and embrace each other for our uniqueness and significance. Our colour for 2020 is A VIBRANT, SKY BLUE - the colour of new life, renewal, vitality and harmony. Sky light blue colour is also associated with springtime which is when Casual Day happens. However, this year due to the COVID19, it will be commemorated together with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December 2020. December is also the International month for Persons with Disabilities and draws attention and awareness to the plight, needs, talents and strengths of Persons with Disabilities.
