Slipper Day, in collaboration with Wimpy, is happening again and it’s scheduled to take place on May 10 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. 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. 

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 the day. Remember to wear your slippers on Slipper Day to create awareness for the campaign.
