• What is Slipper Day?

    Slipper Day is an annual Reach For A Dream initiative to raise awareness and funds for children with life-threatening illnesses. According to the website, the vision of Reach For A Dream is to “encourage children to use their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses and we try, as far as possible, to make these dreams come true. Our vision is to grow the Foundation to enable us to continue giving hope to children fighting life-threatening illnesses through the fulfillment of their dreams and making our national projects available to as many of the children as we can, the projects include: Camp Sunshine, Queen for a Day, Captain Courage, Show You Care Send A Bear and the Jabulani Kingdom Hospital entertainers which function on an ongoing basis.”
