If you are reading this post, it can only be true that by now, you have celebrated several birthdays. Be it with friends or family, a small or large occasion, birthdays are a special time and are always worth celebrating. 

Over the last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us might have had to rethink how we celebrate our special day, scaling back our guest lists to limit interactions and perhaps left, regrettably, with little reason to justify ordering a two-tier cake. 

As we adapt to the new normal, you can still have a truly special birthday by celebrating with SECTION27. 

Encourage your friends and family to donate a gift amount to SECTION27 for your birthday. All the contributions raised on your birthday will be put towards our work of defending human rights, ensuring that all children continue to learn and that the right to basic education encompasses learners’ rights to nutrition and a safe school environment. By pledging your birthday, we can push forward with ensuring that corruption does not undermine the right to quality healthcare services for everyone and that the country’s health response prioritises those who are most vulnerable.

Here is how to participate in the SECTION27 Birthday Pledge Campaign:

  • Download and share the campaign birthday cards with all those you want to invite to join your birthday celebrations.
  • By clicking on the card, your friends and family will be directed to the SECTION27 donate webpage.
  • They will need to fill out their information, making sure to reference you / the person they are donating on behalf of under “company name”.
  • When that’s done, select an amount and press donate.

If you have any questions while participating in this campaign, contact our fundraising officer Dolly Lebakeng: lebakeng@section27.org.za
