Wear your ‘doek’, make a difference

The Cancer Association of South Africa invites all clubs, businesses, schools, institutions and individuals to help them make a difference in the lives of cancer patients by joining the #doekwithadifference campaign.

Businesses, schools, organisations, clubs and individuals can also choose to wrap trees on their properties or in their community in pink fabric.

The #doekwithadifference campaign is an extension of the Pink Trees for Pauline (OTFP) campaign slogan: “Wrapped in colour, united in hope” and aims to raise funds specifically for care and support programmes for cancer patients and those affected by cancer.

The #doekwithadifference hashtag raises awareness and shows support for women and families affected by cancer. Traditional head wraps have long been associated with that of African cultures and worn for cultural, religious or fashion reasons. The style of how it is worn around the head differs from culture to culture.

Organisers are looking forward to seeing all people from all cultures living in South Africa, embrace this initiative which celebrates confidence, strength, and perseverance.

This year your #doekwithadifference (a head wrap or scarf) is more colourful than ever and will be sold to raise funds at R100 each. The aim is to raise awareness about the challenges and issues facing many people fighting cancer and their right to access cancer treatment.

In addition to the doek campaign, individuals and companies can also show their support by buying the pink fabric at R30 per metre and wrapping trees in their local towns and communities. Doeke and fabric are available at all Cansa Care centres across the country. Organisers have decided to go a step further by inviting trucking companies to wrap their vehicles in pink material. The pink material is only R50 for 1,5 m, if you wish to buy extra it will be another R30 per metre.

To order you kopdoek or pink material contact Maryna Voges at 073 699 9722, 028 316 3678 or mvoges@cansa.org.za.
