To commemorate this year's Human Rights Day, the Apartheid Museum launched the #BillOfRightsZA initiative and we're all about it.

The "bill" lists the number of lives affected in the struggle against the apartheid regime in order to remind South African of the real cost of its freedom and bill of rights.

Through the initiative, which is in partnership with Joe Public United, over 8,000 bills have been placed in selected restaurants throughout Johannesburg.

Along with their food and drinks bills, customers visiting the restaurants will be presented with the itemised bill of lives lost, people displaced, and those sent to prison. The bill also doubles up as an entry ticket to the museum between Human Rights Day and Freedom Day in April.

Keen to get one?

Here are some of the restaurants you visit to collect your bill; Hell's Kitchen, Rockets, The Whippet, Corner Café, The Lonely Hearts Club, Coobs, The Republic of 94, Greenside Café and Simply Asia.

Many have taken to Twitter to applaud the museum and its partners for the initiative.
