2017 Sax Appeal edition to hit the streets of Cape Town

This year's edition of the UCT's SAX Appeal magazine will hit the streets of Cape Town on March 10.

SAX Magazine Project manager Kwenza Mncuango and marketing and sales manager, Tamutswa Mahari says the theme for this year is Pembera which means “Celebrate” in Shona.

Mahari says the magazine is aimed at addressing and celebrating the existence of marginalized students, the disabled bodied, LGBTQI community, people of colour, women, poor, the elderly students and all people who feel invisible.

We want to expand our target audience beyond the traditional buyers.

All the proceeds will be going to helping disadvantaged communities in Cape Town through UCT RAG (Remember and Give), an NGO which raises money for the Student Health and Welfare Centres Organisation (Shawco).

Students will be hitting the streets dressed all sorts of interesting attire selling the magazine at R30 a copy.
