Last year Reach For A Dream managed to raise over R400, 000 to make dreams come true for children suffering from life-threatening illnesses across KZN and R1.3 million nationally, with our awareness campaign ‘Reach For Your Slippers’.
All we had to do was get South Africa into their slippers for one day!
Launched in 2011 as a KZN initiative, this campaign has grown phenomenally and in 2012 it ‘went national’. Last year the whole of South Africa was involved as each of the 7 Reach For A Dream offices worked with schools, companies, businesses and individuals in their areas to get more people into slippers for one day than ever before. It is a proud moment to think that this all began here in KZN!
2013 is our 25th birthday. Celebrate a quarter-of-a-century of dream making in your slippers this year and help us to make more dreams come true for children who suffer with conditions including cancer, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, heart conditions amongst many other severe illnesses.
To take part all you need to do is purchase a Slipper Sticker for R10 each and wear your slippers and sticker with pride to school or work on Friday 2nd August. Schools and companies can also take stickers ‘on consignment’ to sell on to staff and students and we collect remaining stickers to balance with funds raised after the big day.
There are so many dreams out there still waiting to be fulfilled so get involved and encourage your work place, company, children’s school, family and friends to take part…and dig out those crazy slippers!
