Slip­per Day fundraiser

Go! & Express - - News - www.reach­foradream.org.za

THE Reach For A Dream Foun­da­tion will once again be host­ing their an­nual “Slip­per Day” to­mor­row.

The vi­sion of the foun­da­tion helps chil­dren be­tween the ages of three to 18 ful­fil dreams they have har­boured and who have been di­ag­nosed with life-threat­en­ing ill­nesses.

Their mis­sion is to in­spire hope in the lives of “dreamers” as they face the daily chal­lenge of treat­ment, and dif­fi­cult and de­mand­ing sit­u­a­tions.

The an­nual Slip­per Day cam­paign en­cour­ages peo­ple to buy their wrist­band for just R10 and to wear their slip­pers to work – or school – for one day to show their sup­port for chil­dren fight­ing a life-threat­en­ing ill­ness.

Hope, courage and strength are the val­ues that make dreams come alive and in­spire dreamers to be pos­i­tive, to heal, and to em­brace their dreams for the fu­ture.

All of these things are made pos­si­ble, with just one wrist­band. Their celebrity am­bas­sadors cre­ated a de­sign that em­bod­ies each of these val­ues. Reach For A Dream are proud to have col­lab­o­rated with the fol­low­ing celebri­ties who de­signed the val­ues on the wrist­bands:

DJ Fresh and Car­rol Boyes = Strength

Roxy Burger and Car­rol Boyes = Courage

Gert-Jo­han Coetzee and Lira = Hope

You can buy your wrist­band at any Pick n Pay and Wimpy. Wear your wrist­band and slip­pers on the 12th of May to any Wimpy na­tion­wide and get a free Wimpy cof­fee!

Sup­port the Reach For A Dream Slip­per Day ini­tia­tive. For just R10 you can help make a child’s dream come true.
