Slipper Day is Reach For A Dream’s most celebrated fundraiser, and this year Slipper Day will be taking place on Friday, 7th of May 2021. Press release below.
Not all heroes wear capes is the running theme of the campaign and is a fitting reminder that all the brave children fighting life-threatened illnesses, doctors, nurses and their families are the true heroes of this time.
“This Slipper Day promises to echo the hearts of all our heroes, and why it is so important for South Africans to come together and believe in the power of dreams and more so, what this means for a child sick in hospital.” – Julia Sotirianakos, Reach For A Dream, CEO
In a normal year, Reach For A Dream would fulfil six dreams a day but since the pandemic, this has changed drastically, and has forced The Foundation to adapt, innovate and respond swiftly to ensure dreams still matter, and that these incredible children and their families know they are thought of. ‘To do the work that we do at Reach For A Dream is so special and it is a daily reminder that more hope and heroes are needed in the world’. Sotirianakos adds.
Together with their retail partners Dischem Pharmacies, Pick n Pay and Wimpy, Reach For A Dream is determined that dreams cannot be locked down and would like to encourage everyone to gear up and get ready for Slipper Day, 7 May by purchasing a supporter sticker for only R20 in-store as well as a new pair of slippers for the occasion .
Slipper Day Supporter Stickers will be available to purchase in-store at all the retail partners: Dischem Pharmacies, Pick n Pay and Wimpy from 7 April. For every sticker purchased, you can also enjoy a free Famous Wimpy Coffee on Slipper Day.
And don’t forget to share your Slipper Day selfie on social media on Friday, 7 May, encouraging everyone to get involved. #slipperday2021
