Earlier today, the Reach For A Dream Foundation launched its #slipperday2017 event, which will take place on May 12, for its 7th annual Slipper Day, and is asking the public to get behind them and support this worthy organisation.
This year, instead of the usual Slipper Day stickers, Reach For A Dream brought in radio celebrity DJ Fresh, cutlery and kitchen utensil designer Carrol Boyes, actress and TV presenter Roxy Burger, singer Lira and fashion designer Gert-Johan Coetzee to design a special ‘strength, hope and courage’ wristbands.
The Foundation’s CEO, Julia Sotirianakos, says, “A big thank you to all our donors, both large and small, who have made it possible for us to make sure children feel special during their times of illness. It means so much to them and to us, and I encourage you to support us once again as we work to put smiles back on faces.
“Committed to helping children endure the ordeal of a life-threatening illness, the Foundation has seen how strength, hope and courage can keep dreams alive. For this year’s Slipper Day, these three values have been woven into the campaign by the Foundation; inviting local celebrities to create a design for the wristbands that embodies one of these values. DJ Fresh worked with Carrol Boyes to illustrate strength, Roxy Burger and Carrol Boyes took on courage and Gert-Johan Coetzee and Lira created the design for hope.”
You can buy your Slipper Day wristbands for only R10 and you can wear your slippers all day on Friday, May 12! Wristbands are available at all Pick n Pay stores and Wimpy restaurants. Participation also entitles you to claim a free Wimpy coffee on the day.
