Media Release:  Inspiring hope – Garden Route District Municipality supports ‘Slipper Day’ initiative 

For Immediate Release
6 May 2022

Slipper Day is the Reach for a Dream Foundation’s most successful annual fund-raising campaign. Last year, over R6 million was generated through donations. Each cent was used to help fulfil the dreams of kids battling life-threatening illnesses. This fun initiative is geared toward every person in South Africa!

“The Garden Route District Municipality encourages everyone to participate, if not this year, next year, by purchasing a sticker of R20 at Wimpy, Baby City, Dis-Chem, Toyzone and Pick n Pay,” said Shandré Abrahams, Employee Assistance Practitioner of the GRDM.

With the help of all South Africans this year, Reach For A Dream plans to fulfil even more dreams by reaching a target of R8 million. ”Our call to action this year is simple. We ask all South Africans to rally behind us and play their part in being visible agents of change. The Foundation’s biggest goal is to have every single South African in slippers on 6 May,” said Julia Sotirianakos, Chief Executive Officer of Reach For A Dream NPO.

Don’t forget to share your Slipper Day selfie using #slipperday2022 and #Reach-foradream on your social media channels on Friday, 6 May, to encourage everyone to get involved. Let’s help Reach For A Dream inspire more hope and make the dreams of children battling life-threatening illnesses come true.
