KaEskwela, the group I volunteer for, has entered into a partnership with Sole Project, a flip-flops store located in Cubao X, to provide some of our beneficiaries with slippers by December (just in time for Christmas).
KaEskwela is a non-profit organization that aims to help school children and public schools in depressed communities. (I wrote about it here last year.) This year we worked together with National Bookstore’s Project Aral and brought school supplies to several schools in Pampanga, Laguna, Bataan and Rizal back in June.
Aside from donating and/or delivering books and school supplies, we’ve also done footwear drives as many of the children we meet in our beneficiary public schools don’t even have slippers to wear.
Sole Project’s “Sole with a Soul” pledges that for every pair of flip-flops you buy, it will give a new pair to KaEskwela for the benefit of school kids. It’s a simple thing really, but it can help.
The Sole Project is located at Stall 64-C Cubao Expo, Araneta Center Cubao, Quezon City. Store hours are at 4-9pm, Wed and Thurs; 4-10pm Fri and Sat; and 1-5 pm Sunday.
KaEskwela will also be getting a portion of the profits from Fashion Rev, a fashion and lifestyle bazaar happening on November 19 and 20, from 10 am to 10 pm at the Megatent (Meralco Avenue, Ortigas Center; beside ULTRA). Entrance fee to the bazaar: PhP100. Drop by and shop! 🙂
