This brave boy is fighting Wilm’s Tumour and his dream is one that every child has…but we’ll leave the telling of it to Melokuhle himself.
This is Johannes
He is a real little fighter, battling chronic liver disease. In his dream Johannes is reaching for the sky, literally. His dream is to fly in a helicopter, just once.
Say Hello to Saba
This little dreamer is fighting Retinoblastoma, but he’s only got one thing on his mind. He really wants his own car and we’re sure every car lover can relate.
Together we can make dreams come true
Since 2014 Wimpy and Reach For A Dream have banded together for a truly inspiring initiative. We are proud supporters of Slipper Day, a yearly Reach For A Dream fundraiser that aims to fulfil the dreams of children who are battling life-threatening illnesses.
This year Slipper Day has been postponed due to lockdown and that’s why we’re launching a Virtual Slipper Week, because little dreamers shouldn’t wait on their dreams.
If you want to help us make a difference, you can make your donation here. Also, don’t forget to show that you’re behind this worthy cause by sharing your Slipper Selfie, tagging @WimpySA and using #VirtualSlipperWeek #BetterTogetherMoments
This year we’ve also decided to put the spotlight on three children who have the courage to not let their dreams be defined by their illness.
