Due to the lockdown, Reach for a Dream was unable to host their annual slipper day in May; now they are hosting a virtual slipper week to make up for lost dreams.
South Africa (07 August 2020) – 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 extraordinary 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 normal’, and 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.
Let’s Get Behind Virtual Slipper Week
Reach for a Dream is calling on all South Africans to come together and join them and Wimpy between 10 – 16 of August to show support by making a donation to this inspiring cause and sharing a Slipper Selfie on social media.
For every donation of R30 and above, a FREE filter coffee voucher will be redeemable from your nearest Wimpy. Share your Slipper Selfie and tag @ReachForADream and @WimpySA and use the hashtag #BetterTogetherMoments and #VirtualSlipperWeek on your post/
“Together we can make dreams come true.”
