Marshall Hinds, distributors of DuPont™ Tyvek® are proud to be associated with Reach For A Dream Foundation and the Annual Slipper Day, this year on 10 May 2019.


In 2017 Natalie Lazaris, Head of Business Development of Reach For A Dream Foundation approached Marshall Hinds to see if it would be possible to sponsor Tyvek® wristbands for their annual Slipper Day initiative.

The Reach For A Dream Foundation works with children that have life-threatening illnesses and helps make their dreams come to life.  No matter how big the dream, the team at Reach For A Dream work with each individual child to make their specific dream come true.    These Dream Stories are truly inspirational…

Mike Bath, MD of Marshall Hinds immediately agreed to being a sponsor and promised Natalie that he would provide Tyvek® wristbands for the event.

At the time most wristbands were being imported, but Mike was convinced that they could be made locally.

When Mike started looking for a partner to print and convert Tyvek® wristbands locally, Ren-form was an obvious choice.

Ren-form had the printing capability as well as the vision and passion of Erika Hearnshaw, Marketing & Augmented Reality Manager and her team to make this project a reality.

In 2017, Ren-form produced 700 000 Tyvek® wristbands for the first time in South Africa to support the efforts of Reach For A Dream and its Slipper Day.


Owen Parnell started The Reach For A Dream Foundation and on 7 July 1988, when the organisation made its very first dream come true.

Since then Reach For A Dream has brought fulfilment of dreams, hope, joy and healing to countless South African children between the ages of 3 and 18, regardless of their race, colour and creed, who are faced with a life-threatening illness.

Slipper Day is one of the annual fund raising events on the Reach For A Dream calendar.

By purchasing a wristband for ten rand from Pick n Pay, Wimpy, Dischem or any Reach For A Dream branch, you are helping to raise funds that makes dreams come true for many children who otherwise would face a bleak future.

Your Tyvek® wristband also entitles you to a free cup of Wimpy coffee and the freedom to wear your slippers out of the house!
