Students from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) are assisting with the launch of Non-Profit Organisation, Restoring Soles 2 Souls. Restoring Soles 2 Souls collects and redistributes new and gently-worn shoes to impoverished communities in South Africa, to help them step through poverty. The campaign, Her Majesty was created to provide underprivileged matriculant girls with heels for their Matric Dance. We ask that people donate gently-worn or unused high heels in order to help us break the cycle of poverty.
As we know, finance plays a major role in the planning of a Matric Dance for matriculates. The necessary attire and accessories do not come cheap, everything from the hair to the dress and the heels, all contribute to having an extraordinary night. Restoring Soles 2 Souls campaign, Her Majesty takes place on the 20th September in cooperation and will be handing over the collected high heels to the Zola Senior Secondary School in Khayelitsha for their upcoming Matric Dance.
The CPUT students would like to collect XX pair of heels and will be handing them out based on TWO competitions. The first competition is a social media competition where participants are required to post a video of themselves, telling us about themselves and explaining why they should be picked. The participants are also required to reveal the colour of their dress and tag friends in the post. The second competition requires the participants to write a motivational letter and leave it in the drop box of the staff room.
The day of the hand out will be super special as the event will kick off with a guest speaker. The guest speaker will address the perception of young girl’s, how to identify who they are and the daily battles women fight regarding their insecurities and judgement.
Let’s better lives with more smiles each day and donate as many heels as possible!
