Reach for a dream celebrates 30 years of dreams come true

Written by: diannem

2018 marks 30 years of making dreams come true for the Reach For A Dream Foundation and in recognition of this incredible milestone, are thanking who have been a part of making dreams come true over the years.

If it weren’t for their donors, sponsors, volunteers, medical staff, volunteers, and the friends of the Foundation – and of course their own staff - the Reach For A Dream Foundation would not have been able to inspire as much hope as they have over the past 30 years.

Reach For A Dream makes dreams come true for children between the ages of 3 and 18 who are living with life-threatening illnesses. By fulfilling their dreams, Reach For A Dream brings hope, joy and healing to these children and their families by offering the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to illness.

In 30 years, the Reach for a Dream Foundation has fulfilled the dreams of over 18,300 children and has touched the lives of over 45 000 more through their various projects.

We believe in the power of dreams and we encourage children to use their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses. We seek, as far as possible, to make dreams come true and our donors and sponsors make this happen.

In celebration of their 30th birthday, they are urging members of the public to donate R30 to help continue to inspire hope in life-threatened children.

Visit the Reach for a Dream website www.reachforadream.org.zato make a donation and to see the Foundation in action, check them out on Facebook
