For 34 years, Reach for a Dream has fulfilled the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. These little dreamers’ childhoods have been marred by endless doctor visits, lengthy hospital stays, and often painful treatments, which is why Reach for a Dream remains committed to instilling hope in the lives of these children and their families.
Reach For A Dream’s largest annual fundraiser, Slipper Day, is supported by Wimpy, Dis-Chem Pharmacies, and Pick ‘n Pay. This year, TOYZONE and Baby City joined this initiative. Last year, Reach for a Dream raised over R6 million thanks to South Africans’ generosity, and all funds were used to fulfil the dreams of little dreamers. They hope to realise even more dreams this year and reach an R8 million goal.
Together with Reach for a Dream, I’d like to encourage everyone to show their support on Slipper Day, Friday, 6 May 2022. Each sticker purchased benefits the Reach for a Dream Foundation, to help children harness the power of their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses and make these dreams a reality.
Don’t forget to wear your slippers and stickers and visit any Wimpy location across the country to claim your FREE Wimpy Coffee. You can buy a pair of funky slippers here. These sleepy unicorns are literally my spirit animals and I desperately want them on my feetsies.
Don’t forget to share your Slipper Day selfie with the hashtags #slipperday2022 and #reachforadream on your social media channels on Friday, 6 May, to encourage everyone to participate and help inspire more hope and make the dreams of children battling life-threatening illnesses come true.
