Shoeless Initiative Raises Funds for Underprivileged
The Catholic Board of Education proposed an initiative to raise awareness and funds for underprivileged Catholic schools around South Africa. Students at Marist Brothers Linmeyer in Johannesburg were asked to come to school in slippers, barefoot or wearing sandals for one day and to donate R10, to remember how many children go to school daily in all weather conditions without shoes.
