Sophie Hodes and Jade Robinson (Grade 3, age 9) from King David Linksfield Junior School wanted to do a shoe collection for people less fortunate than themselves.

The school principal, Ruth Isaacson suggested they do the collection for Boikanyo – the Dion Herson , which is a non-profit organisation working with indigent children and their caregivers in impoverished township communities (Boikanyo.org.za).

Tsogo Sun’s Gold Reef City kindly sponsored amazing prizes which they used to encourage their fellow students to bring in shoes. The prizes included tickets to see Puss in Boots at the Lyric theatre, theme park tickets as well as meal vouchers and ten pin bowling tickets for Gold Reef City.

The girls sold raffle tickets during tuckshop which is once a week at school at R5 a ticket or 5 tickets per pair of shoes donated.

The raffle was held for two weeks and the girls collected an amazing 300 pairs of shoes and R500 for the organisation.

Here are some pictures of them being interviewed by YO TV and SABC Kids News on their initiative, encouraging other children to also get involved and assist where they can.
