Reach For A Dream’s Slipper Day On May 5

Reach For A Dream’s Slipper Day returns on May 5 and calls on all South Africans to donate their small change to help children who are battling life-threatening illnesses.


  • Reach For A Dream is counting on South Africans to step up, buy their R20 sticker, and join their mission to manifest hope by fulfilling the dreams of youngsters fighting life-threatening illnesses.
  • Last year Reach For A Dream raised over R8.3 million and this year they are aiming to raise R10 million to help 2000 children.
  • The sticker is redeemable for a free Famous Wimpy Coffee on May 5.

Since its inauguration in Kwa-Zulu Natal in 2011, Reach For A Dream’s Slipper Day has grown into a nationwide movement, with everyone from office workers to school children wearing their bunny-eared and fuzzy slippers instead of shoes.

Slipper Day is our biggest annual fundraiser with all funds going towards fulfilling the dreams of children who are facing some of the toughest challenges life can throw at them. This year, we’re calling on all South Africans to step up and support Slipper Day not only to celebrate these brave dreamers but inspire hope among them, so they know that no matter what obstacles arise, they are never alone in their journey.

All proceeds raised from the day go to Reach For A Dream, a leading non-profit organisation, to help children fight a serious disease by making their dreams – such as swimming with dolphins, meeting an idol or celebrity or getting a new doll house – come true. This not only gives these youngsters and their families an invaluable respite from daily stressors associated with ill health, but stirs up much-needed courage and hope, helping these little ones believe that tomorrow is worth fighting for.

Getting involved with Slipper Day is an easy way to do something meaningful while having fun and supporting an incredible cause! So, step up, wear your supporter sticker and slippers on May 5 and do the Slipper Shuffle to help make dreams come true.
