Tekkie Tax is an International Fundraising Campaign that was started in 2013. Some of our biggest National Welfare Organisations in SA joined forces to conduct one BIG national fundraising campaign called International Tekkie Tax Day®. Together we represent more than 1800 NGOs all over the country.
Since its inception, the campaign raised nearly R40-million. During the same time Tekkie Tax generated sponsored publicity of close to R60-million. After the annual audit in October 2018, all profit was distributed to participating beneficiaries.
The project is supported by thousands of people, companies, SMMEs, NGOs & schools and we are thankful to each one for joining in the fun. Thanks to them, this is quickly becoming the most significant national fundraising campaign in SA.
HOW does it work?
Members of the public are asked to choose a Tekkie Tax sticker. There are five different stickers available, each representing a beneficiary sector. Depending on where your heart lies, you can choose which of the five sectors you would like to support and YES, you may choose more than one!
For 2019, you can buy your FDA approved, water-removable tattoo.
Next step is to buy a pair of our funky Tekkie Tax Shoelaces, called “Hickies”. On 31st May, you can dress up or down (it really does not matter), but remember to wear your sticker or tattoo and your Mezzz-merised tekkies with the special new hickies.
Just to make sure that you have been properly Tekkie-tized, get a stunning black campaign T-Shirts (adult & kiddies sizes available).
