Now in its 2nd year, the CHOC Flip Flop Day is an annual event celebrated on 12 February 2021. It is a day of fun and colour, because although childhood cancer is in no way light hearted, South Africans certainly are, and when it comes to our children we need to rally behind them, as CHOC SOLE-diers to truly show that we are a force to be reckoned with.
“We are so excited for our 2nd Flip Flop Day”, says Taryn Seegers Communication Coordinator of CHOC. “Flip Flops are most certainly a part of almost all of our wardrobes, and who isn’t looking for an excuse to wear them? Now we’re giving the public the chance to show us their heart by wearing a sole to bring some colour to the streets and highlight the importance of the work that CHOC does, and raise some much needed funds to keep our young South Africans and their families supported through the long and challenging journey that they are facing. Our first Flip Flop Day raised well over R1,5 Million and showed us that it truly is possible to make a massive difference in the lives of these families, and we are convinced that this year will be even more successful. Have a heart, wear a sole and set your toes free to stand behind us on 12 February 2021.”
Where to get your Flip Flop Day Stickers
The campaign will be supported by PNA Stationers, one of South Africa’s largest and most successful retail stores, selling everything from stationary to art and craft materials, books and educational books; as well as Tekkie Town, Southern Africa’s much loved retailer of branded footwear, accessories and apparel. The public will be able to pop into any of these stores nationwide, and grab their Flip Flop Day sticker.
It’s simply never been easier to make a difference.
With a simple donation of R10, every South African can show their heart by wearing their soles! From classrooms to boardrooms, let’s walk in our flip flops for a day to highlight CHOC’s passionate purpose – our refusal to back down and let childhood cancer win. With the support of all of us, our children and teenagers fighting childhood cancer will know that they never have to stand alone.
