Did you hear about Slipper Day?
Well…It is the only day during the year that it’s okay for you to go to work in your funky slippers.
Reach For A Dream is encouraging South Africans to wear their slippers on Friday the 7th of August 2015 and help fulfil the dreams of children fighting life threatening illnesses such as cancer, renal failure, heart conditions and blood disorders. Wearing your comfiest pair of slippers in public is now socially acceptable!
Simply buy your sticker for R10 and swap your regular work or school shoes for your favourite pair of slippers.
Slipper Day is a fun way for people to contribute a small amount of money and make a huge difference. This year’s campaign theme is “Don’t let their dreams disappear” and they need South Africans to come out in their numbers to support the campaign. The success of this means that many of the “Dream Children” will have their dreams made a reality. The Foundation is hoping to raise R4 million this year and all the money will go towards dreams and projects for severely ill children.
Simply logon to the website (www.slipperday.co.za/buy-a-sticker) and purchase your R10 sticker to show your support on your Facebook and Twitter profile.
Stickers are also available at all Wimpy stores countrywide. Customers who visit Wimpy outlets wearing their slippers and “Slipper Day” sticker will also receive a free Wimpy coffee as a thank you for supporting the Reach For A Dream initiative.
For 27 years, Reach For A Dream, a non-profit organization, has fulfilled dreams of children between the ages of 3 and 18 faced with life-threatening illnesses. This is quite a legacy for an organization that reaches out to children of all income groups and of any race, colour or creed. Slipper Day is not the only platform to get involved in making dreams come true; there are a number of other projects.
