Are you sick of that pottymouth in the family or at work? Well, now you can help them give a f@*k by placing a swear jar for charity at home or work.


South Africa – Rare Diseases South Africa would like you to turn your swearing into caring and to show you really give a f@*k about changing lives.

They have launched an initiative as part of Giving Tuesday to encourage people to help them raise funds (in a fun way) for their organisation.

“The problem is that come December 3rd (the day of GivingTuesday 2019), all South Africans are beyond gatvol! We all are counting down the days to our beachy holidays and annual leave, and really, no one actually #GivesAF@&k about GivingTuesday.

So we harnessed some of that energy to fill a need.”

Rare Diseases want people to care so they have called the public to action. They want people to start swear jars at home and work to help raise funds. Every time someone swears, they have to put money in the jar. The best part is you can catch them even if they don’t have cash (Snapscan and Zapper links are below).

The money raised is going to be used to generate a procurement fund for high-cost innovative medicines and treatments for rare disease patients.

“Unfortunately, medical aids and our government have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to our plight, simply because our diseases are expensive. We need to raise R100million to kick start a risk equalization fund, its extreme, we know it, but our patients are totally worth it.”

Once your swear jar is full, donate the amount to Rare Diseases using the Snapscan or Zapper codes below and start again.

“Encourage everyone to use their #SwearingIntoCaring by donating for every time they use explicit language on GivingTuesday and donate it to our cause. The website is www.givefucks.org

Basically, we ask people to give a fuck one last time.”

To simply donate, use either of the following:
