The challenge for 2011 went very well and SADD was able to raise over R7000. We had many celebrities on board, as well as other influential South African Citizens. The City of Cape Town joined the Challenge and were helpful in spreading the word about the campaign.
Caro Smit was interviewed by many radio stations nationwide, with a lot of interest being shown throughout South Africa.
More information will be provided once we have a final figure of how the Challenge went. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to find out more, or if you have any stories about how your challenge went.
R100 for the month, or R25 for the student challenge, or R20 for a10 day challenge! If you need a SpecialBreak - to drink on a special day, you can purchase a SpecialBreak for R20 a day!
The money comes to SADD to help us carry on our work in the Schools, University and the Community - to help bring down deaths and injuries caused by alcohol misuse, which also includes drinking then driving / walking.

Pledge to be Alcohol Free for a year, for only R5, and get a badge to proudly show off your status!
SADD are working with "Action for a Safe South Africa"- in the work group "A Sober SA" We are trying to make Schools alcohol free zones.
We want the ZeroHero's to be the real heros at the Schools, and to proudly wear the AlcoFreeTeen badge to show off thier status, and act as an incentive for others to follow on and protect their brains as well.
Alcohol misuse is causing incredible social and physical damage to teenagers, as underage/undeveloped brains cannot handle large quantities of alcohol at 1 time, and become damaged in a subtle way.
This can lead to impairments in learning skills, and the early development of a permanent disease, called alcoholism.
