Tattooathan March 2013

Spot the Temporary Ink
Unlike my fucking kick-arse temporary tattoos that you can win on my blog, South Africa is holding a 2013 Tattooathon.

The Tattooathon is about getting inked, having fun and doing it for a good cause: helping kids beat cancer!

During March 2013, Tattooathon will be colouring skin around SA.

Why I hear you say?

Firstly, it’s for a good cause, namely CHOC.

The CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation SA was established in 1979 by a parent group in Johannesburg. The organisation does not receive funding from government and rely heavily on donations from caring corporates, individuals and parents of children with cancer. Donations and fund raising projects like Tattooathon are therefore the lifeblood of the organisation.

Secondly, if you’ve got a tattoo you’ll know that familiar itch of looking for an excuse to get another one.

Last year, the first Tattooathon raised over R70,000.00, sprouted from a simple idea: encourage people to get tattooed, raise funds for kids battling cancer and alter the stigma attached to having a tattoo. From concept to money in the bank, this outcome was achieved in 5 weeks. This level on enthusiasm lead the organisers to fully embrace the possibility that the Tattooathon event could, in fact, become more than a fun local event.

Go book your tattoo appointment HEREwith one of the many artists and studios involved in the Tattooathon.

If you're not feeling brave enough to get permanently inked, you can always just DONATE your hard earned dosh towards the cause and I will send you one of my awesome temporary tattoos - just cause you can't have enough ink on your bod!

All you have to do is let me know you donated and I'll send you one for FREEEEEEE.

Thanks for stopping by. Love your Post. We have something similar at St. Baldwicks people get there heads shaved, and their fee goes towards the Cancer Foundation or something like that. Hope all is well with you. Love your videos in the other Post too! hahahahahahaha

I love this idea Lass, it's just so cool that they managed to raise so much money for charity with such a simple idea. It's ideas like this that really help to make a massive difference in the world, love it.
