It’s almost time for the 5th annual White T-Shirt Day taking place on Friday 22 April 2022, and Nkosinathi Foundation of and for Blind and Partially Sighted People would like to challenge all schools, businesses and individuals in the Nelson Mandela Metropole to participate in this awareness and fundraising event.
White T-Shirt Day aims to Break the Barriers of Blindness faced by children living in the Eastern Cape, as well as create awareness in schools and amongst the public about eye health, possible warning signs of visual impairment and the importance of maintaining one’s vision.
Participation in this fun event is easy, simply purchase a unique White T-Shirt Day sticker from our organisation and wear it in combination with a white shirt on the 22nd of April. Stickers are R5 for primary school pupils and R10 for high schools pupils, corporates and individuals.
Along with the sticker sales, awareness talks are available for both schools and corporates, as well as basic screenings and awareness material distribution for participating schools.
All of the funds raised from this initiative will be used to provide critical education, skills development and rehabilitation services, as well as assistive educational toys to blind and partially sighted children. A portion of the funds will also be used to purchase and distribute specialised equipment, such as a white cane, which is a key tool used by visually impaired people to live independent lives.
If you would like to find out more about this initiative and would like to purchase stickers contact our Awareness and BuB Bags Coordinator, Anelisa, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our offices at 041 487 1150.
