Support Virtual Slipper Week 

Reach For A Dream recently celebrated 32 years of fulfilling the dreams of children from across South Africa between the ages of 3 and 18 faced with a life-threatening illness.  

This is an extra-ordinary milestone for a non-profit organisation in South Africa. Despite the lockdown and global pandemic, Reach For A Dream is still engaging with children, families and medical teams across South Africa. The Foundation has had to adapt to this new normaland in doing so has a list of dream children in waiting. 

More so, the much celebrated annual Slipper Day, which is Reach For A Dream’s largest fundraising campaign, was scheduled to happen on 8 May 2020 but due to the lockdown it was postponed resulting in Reach For A Dream experiencing a terrible setback in terms of funding which is effecting the good work they are doing. 

With this in mind, Reach For A Dream has teamed up with long-standing retail partner, Wimpy to initiate a Virtual Slipper Week which will run from 10 – 16 August 2020.   

Now more than ever, we need to support our children and by giving these vulnerable children hope, we can help to make their dreams a reality. This is an opportunity for us to show the true spirit of South Africa, of Ubuntu, of togetherness. says Jacques Cronje, Wimpy’s Marketing Executive.
