Wear your slippers to make a child’s dream come true

Wimpy Mall of Africa's Olga Marro with Jessica Barlow, the first customer who bought a wristband at the Slipper Day campaign launch; Wimpy's brand manager, Ayanda Peppeta; marketing manager Luise Peters and managing executive, Molla Bonnet enjoy the launch with them.

 

Local celebrities and media guests slipped on their favourite slippers and headed over toWimpy at the Mall of Africa for the Slipper Day campaign launch.

This was a bid to get South Africans to support Slipper Day by wearing their slippers as well as Slipper Day wristbands designed by renowned designer, Gert-Johan Coetzee, on 12 May.

The initiative was initiated by Reach for a Dream foundation to raise funds and awareness for children who suffer from life-threatening diseases.

Supporters have the right to wear their slippers to work, school and even the mall without being judged, but only if they buy a R10 Slipper Day wristband from their closest Wimpy branch.

Another bonus for supporters who wear their wristbands and slippers on the day is a free cup of regular coffee if they pop into a Wimpy.

All funds and proceeds raised through the Slipper Day campaign will help put a smile on the faces of the foundation’s dream children.

You can do your bit to support this campaign by purchasing a R10 wristband from any Wimpy.
