The campaign also serves to raise funds to buy nappies for children with disabilities — an essential health item that children with disabilities often go without. Individuals are invited to help the event raise funds for 55 000 nappies to supply to children with disabilities, around the country.

The event is organised by the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities and forms part of the council's observation of South Africa's Disability Rights Awareness Month in November.
