I really love this initiative and every year I pop into Wimpy for a coffee, wearing my slippers, to help Reach for a Dream raise funds towards making a child’s’ dream become a reality. It’s only R10 for a wristband and a coffee, so why not get a cuppa for the whole damn office. It’s a really great feeling!
Slipper Day is scheduled to take place on 10 May 2019. It’s a time that calls for South Africans to come together to help the dreams of many children across the country to come into fruition. Once more, Wimpy is proud and excited to support Reach For A Dream (RFAD) as well as amplify the incredible work done by the Foundation.
RFAD is one of South Africa’s most treasured charities that has made dreams for children suffering from serious, often terminal, illnesses come true; and in just over three decades it has touched over 3 million lives. The Foundation gives children the gift of fun and adventure – joyful parts of life they are often denied due to their illness.
With the support of South Africans, last year Wimpy raised R1.43 million from the sales of Slipper Day bracelets in store and gave away 42 151 free cups of Famous Wimpy Coffees on Slipper Day to all who wore their slippers and presented their wristbands. Wimpy outlets are geared up and ready for this year’s event and have stocked up on Slipper Day wristbands.
“Supporting Slipper Day is a great pride and joy for Wimpy because children are an important part of the family unit, and our brand is all about celebrating and supporting families. We ask all South Africans to come out in numbers in support of this worthy cause,” says Jacques Cronje, Marketing Executive at Wimpy South Africa.
With just R10 you can get a Slipper Day wristband and all proceeds will go to Reach For A Dream. The wristband is redeemable for a free Famous Wimpy Coffee on 10 May – and remember to wear your slippers on Slipper Day to create awareness for the campaign.
So, save the date (10 May 2019), buy your Slipper Day wristband for just R10 and contribute towards changing a young life.
