The Quad Squad Brick 4 Brick challenge, which ran from 18 February to 18 March, to build self help centres for quadriplegics and paraplegics topped the R1 500 000 mark in sales.
This is the ninth year of the relationship with Pick ‘n Pay and overall it has raised in excess of R5 million for the association and has been responsible for the establishment of five self help centres and business opportunities within the association.
QASA is privileged and proud to be a partner in this campaign through Pick ‘n Pay and its customers and the corporate and schools participation.
Many companies had a “casual” or “awareness” day at work on Friday 18 March where everyone could wear their “brick” sticker, to show they have helped build self help centres for quadriplegics and paraplegics.
All funds raised go towards building self help centres which allow independent living for quadriplegics. QASA has 15 such self help centres in its stable and this unique recipe of independent living has allowed quadriplegics the opportunity to integrate back into mainstream society with confidence and dignity.
All these centres are self sustainable through small businesses on site and many of our self help centres provide outreach services to quadriplegics and paraplegics in the surrounding areas.
The self help centre concept has had life changing results and this through QUAD SQUAD DAY.
