Sharing is caring Supporting Unicef in their mission to create a world where every child is learning
By gathering old or unwanted shoes as part of our unique ShoeShare initiative, we’ve been able to support UNICEF as they strive to transform the lives of children everywhere.01/12/2020
Since 2008, our innovative donation programme has raised more than £1.6 million, money that has helped UNICEF as they work to ensure that every child around the world receives a quality education.
We haven’t stopped there either. In 2017, we started working in partnership with Unicef's Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA), which puts children's rights at the heart of education in the UK. By working closely with schools, the RRSA programme aims to create safe and inspiring places to learn, places where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they’re able to thrive.
The RRSA embeds these values into daily school life, giving children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and grow up to be responsible, active citizens.
In 2017, we were able to help 33 disadvantaged schools work towards the RRSA. In 2018 the figure rose to 35, and in 2019 we supported 51 schools as they worked towards the RRSA.
Since launching this partnership, over 500 schools have also held ShoeShare collections, further helping Unicef in their amazing work - both in the UK and abroad.
