Written by: Neo Koza

Reach for a Dream is calling on members of the public to support its Virtual Slipper Week after having to postpone its annual Slipper Day fundraising campaign.

You can donate an amount of R10 or more via a special website portal set up in collaboration with Wimpy. All donations from R30 upwards will be rewarded with a free filter coffee.

You can also purchase a pair of slippers on the organisation's website.

Mandy Wiener spoke to Reach for a Dream CEO Julia Sotirianakos to find out more.

Your listeners and yourself can go onto www.wimply.co.za and contribute towards slipper week. That stays the same ... and then we are just encouraging people from the 10th to the 16th of August to wear your slippers, post them up on social media tag Reach for a Dream and #BetterMomentsTogether and let's get some momentum going.
