Step Up and Support Slipper Day on 5 May
Help a child fight a serious illness by simply swopping your school shoes, loafers or stilettos
for fluffy slippers and buying a sticker

Reach For A Dream’s biggest fundraiser Slipper Day is back on Friday, 5 May 2023 and we’re counting on you to step up, and join our mission to manifest hope so that we can fulfill the dreams of youngsters fighting life-threatening illnesses.

Simply purchase a supporter sticker for R20 each and earn yourself the right to strut around school, work, or home in your slippers on 5 May 2023, while helping to raise funds for Reach For A Dream.

From office workers in corporate attire donning bunny-eared slippers, to school children sporting fuzzy monsters – wearing your slippers and stickers is just one small step that will have a huge impact. It’s your chance to get creative, have fun and help make a difference!

What Is Slipper Day?

Slipper Day is Reach For A Dream’s largest and most celebrated fundraiser. It began as a local initiative in Kwa-Zulu Natal in 2011 and has since grown into a nationwide movement.

In 2022, we raised over R8.3-million and this year, we’re aiming to raise R10 million so that we can help 2 000 children with life-threatening illnesses experience moments of joy that come with having dreams fulfilled.

Why Support Slipper Day?

All proceeds raised from the day go to Reach For A Dream to help us combat the gravity of serious disease by assisting us in making children’s dreams come true. Whether it’s taking a plunge and swimming alongside dolphins, meeting an idol they admire, or getting that new doll house they’ve always dreamed of – these magical moments grant these youngsters and their families an invaluable respite from daily stressors associated with ill health. But more than anything else, what truly makes this experience special is how fulfilled dreams stir up much-needed courage and hope, helping these little ones believe that tomorrow is worth fighting for.

How Do I Get Involved?

Simple. Get your R20 Slipper Day sticker and wear it, together with your cozy footwear on 5 May 2023 in a show of support for children with life-threatening illnesses who spend most of their time in slippers. You’ll also get a FREE Famous Coffee from Wimpy on the day!

How to get your stickers:

  1. Place a bulk order here or via your nearest Reach For A Dream branch and have them delivered. 
  2. Visit any of our retail partners – Wimpy, Pick n Pay, Dis-Chem Pharmacies, ToyZone, or Dis-Chem Baby City – and buy your sticker in-store from 3 April to 5 May 2023.
