Relate bracelets along with the Reach For A Dream Foundation, have joined hands in a bid to raise R100 000 over the course of a month for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Launching on 25 September, World Dream Day, we are calling on global change makers to show their support by purchasing a bracelet and helping to inspire joy and hope. September is also Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.


With 2020 being incredibly challenging on all fronts, the opportunity to contribute to such an important cause serves as a timely reminder to everyone to appreciate their good health. Having a child or someone you love battle a life-threatening illness is something that no one can ever fully prepare for and bringing hope to their lives is the aim of Reach For A Dream, who make dreams come true for children battling a life threatening illness.

 This R100 000 campaign seeks to unite people from all walks of life in a common cause, remembering that every contribution counts towards raising the grand total - no matter how big or small. Through the purchase of a beautiful handmade bracelet, Relate is working to raise much needed funds for dream fulfillment. The Relate Trust, which makes these bracelets, protects lives and creates livelihoods through job creation for vulnerable communities.

“Through every struggle we have had as a country, we always unite for a common goal. I would like this to be viewed as another important goal that we can reach together. Reach For A Dream’s biggest fundraiser of the year, their annual gala dinner, won’t be taking place this year due to COVID-19. By buying one or a few bracelets, you are contributing towards lives changed for the better”, says Lauren Gillis, Founder of Relate. 

Bracelets are available for purchase via our online store in singles, boxes of 10 and 50, to wear and share with family and friends. Customers purchasing 10 or more within South Africa qualify for free shipping. 

After a difficult 2020 in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Relate Trust have been working hard to ensure their contributions that make such an enormous difference to the lives of South Africa’s most vulnerable citizens continue uninterrupted.
