Here’s a little more on Reach for a Dream’s incredible work.
2019 started off with a bang and we are in full-swing. Each year Reach For A Dream chooses a ‘theme’ that provides a golden thread, weaving the chosen theme into every campaign, project and event that we run, during the year. The theme for this year is Courage. We made a phenomenal dream come true!
Matthew (18) from Cape Town has always dreamt of going to see the gorillas in Rwanda. This dream is on many people’s bucket list, and we are so thrilled that we were able to fulfil this dream for Matthew.
Heidi, Cape Town Branch Manager, said that the handover was an incredible experience as both Matthew and his Dad were completely unaware that his dream was going to come true (his mom is good at keeping secrets). Matthew was so shocked and moved when we told him his dream was coming true, that he was brought to tears. He spent the rest of that evening with his parents researching everything about their forthcoming trip.
Matthew’s mother went on this incredible experience with him and this is what she had to say before the trip:
“Dear Reach For A Dream
We are so overwhelmed and grateful for this amazing opportunity that Matt has to visit the gorillas. What an unbelievable gift and wonderful dream come true. Thank you for your efforts in making this possible. We were all a bit overwhelmed and emotional after hearing that news and spent the evening researching it all. Incredible. Thank you. Michele”
This was the message Heidi received, while they were on the trip:
“Heidi, we have arrived safely in the Impenetrable Park… have not hiked to see the gorillas as yet, but what an experience already! We saw a Shoebill yesterday and they are as rare as hens teeth. Matt is in his element! We feel so properly spoilt. Thank you so much – this has been a journey of a lifetime already!”
They hiked to within two meters of the gorillas and could not believe that they were actually experiencing seeing these incredible creatures.
