Soles For Souls
By Colin A., 6th grader, School News Team
The person who brought the Soles for Souls Foundation to Design39Campus is 7th grade student Layla Marzona. The purpose of the Soles for Souls Foundation is to help out other people in the world that do not have shoes and that are getting diseases from not wearing shoes.
Layla Marzona wanted to help out because she wanted to donate shoes to people who need them and don’t have any shoes. Kenya is one of the areas of the world that do not have shoes to wear and now they are getting diseases. Layla Marzona posted a video on YouTube which talks about the Soles for Souls Foundation and how wearing shoes helps the world. Also it helps the environment and recycling.
So many people throw away their shoes everyday, and she wanted to make use of those by giving them to other people who do not have any shoes. The boxes that hold the shoes are not here anymore because the event is over now. But Layla did collect 550 shoes and her goal was to get 500 shoes. That’s awesome!.
Thank you Layla Marzona for bringing this wonderful, creative Soles for Souls Foundation to Design39Campus.
