Step Into My Slippers

Since its inauguration in 2011, Slipper Day has become a nationwide movement where everyone band together to make dreams come true for children with critical diseases like cancer, renal failure, and heart conditions.

This year’s theme, “Step into My Slippers,” focuses on empathy, fun, and stepping into the shoes (or rather, slippers) of these brave children. This simple act demonstrates solidarity and support for these children, who often spend their days in slippers due to their health conditions.

From their inception in 1988, Reach For A Dream has turned more than 27,670 dreams into reality. These dreams, ranging from meeting personal heroes to experiencing new things for the first time, provide the children with a temporary escape from their illness and a much-needed distraction from often painful medical treatments. Most importantly, fulfilled dreams inspire hope, giving these children a reason to believe that tomorrow is worth fighting for.

Stickers cost R20 each, and can be purchased from Wimpy, Pick n Pay, Dis-Chem Pharmacies, Dis-Chem Baby City, Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Krispy Kreme, and Alternatively, bulk order them from the Reach For A Dream website. This year, Zapper has come on board to make it as easy as possible for people to pay for their virtual Slipper Day stickers.
