CHILD POVERTY DAY OCTOBER 17TH

MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH SAFA CAMPAIGN!
2 millions de chaussures jetées chaque semaine en Angleterre!
A quand la même campagne en France?
Pour simplement faire des heureux, par exemple??
Allez un petit effort, l'info est en anglais...

The campaign kicks off on Monday the 13th of October and finishes on Child
Poverty Day on Friday the 17th October. Children across the UK will be
donating their unwanted shoes in a bid to change a child‚s life in Africa.

Did you know that we discard two million pairs of shoes every week in the
UK? This contributes to the nearly two million tonnes of textiles being
dumped in landfill each year. Imagine waving goodbye to your beloved
little ones as they set off on a walk that could be up to seven miles
across uneven ground barefoot. You can‚t? Well, this is a daily occurrence
for African parents who cannot afford to buy their offspring shoes and have
to nurse their ageing, wrinkled and calloused grey feet. Shoes in Africa
cost more than a month‚s salary (approximately 12% of the annual wage); a
huge sum compared to the cost of shoes in the UK where a normal purchase
represents just 0.83% of our average yearly salary.
