Impoverished communities face many challenges and shoes should not be one of them. The Public Relations Department at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) has launched Restoring Soles 2 Souls, a Non-Profit Organisation. Restoring Soles 2 Souls has created Happy Feet, a campaign which seeks to break the cycle of poverty by collecting and redistributing pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes to the impoverished communities in and around Cape Town.
All donated shoes will go towards Oscar Mpetha High School’s matric class of 2018 on the 21st of September. The campaign will be supplying 60 pairs of shoes within this month as the matriculants are starting their new adventure of adulthood. This is a small step that changes lives, and will ensure that the youth of Cape Town will feel more confident, comfortable and special in their future endeavours.
As you know, every sole has a story and with the #HappyFeet campaign we encourage every donator to write a short personal message of their favourite memory with their donated shoes. Project Manager, Marni Venter says “We know that most people have unwanted shoes at home, and would love to impact lives with the gift of shoes by donating them to the cause of Restoring Soles 2 Souls”.
It feels good to make a difference, so be the hero for children in need by helping our future leaders take a step in the right direction!
