“We will be fund-raising for our national Casual Day Project, our beneficiaries who are persons with disabilities and their families who have been negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic,” said 2J Harmonix, Casual Day youth ambassador who is also a rapper and activist for the rights of persons with disabilities.
Proudly brought to you by the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD), the concert will be hosted by Harmonix alongside artists performing from their homes.
These include a variety of vocalists, poets, instrumentalists, dancers and rappers.
The Side by Side at Home Concert will be broadcast on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/CasualDaySA/ .
“Persons with disabilities are among the hardest hit by the crippling economic and health ramifications of the Coronavirus pandemic, and we are seeing NGOs nationwide struggle to keep their doors open in order to support the most vulnerable in society. For these reasons we decided to plan this donation drive within the spirit of Youth Day,” said Therina Wentzel-du Toit, national director of the NCPD.
The public is invited to open their hearts, showing support through online donations during the show at www.casualday.co.za/donate.
Anyone can enjoy this exciting experience within Mzanzi and globally.
