Kids host a disco to buy school shoes
Perth children are hosting a disco to raise money to buy shoes for kids in remote villages in Bali. $15 a ticket and each ticket will buy one under-privileged child a pair of schools shoes and socks for 2012.
The disco will be on 20th August, 2011 from 4:30-6:30pm for children ages 3-12years. Tickets are $15 each and each ticket buys a new pair of shoes and socks for a child in Indonesia. Tickets can be bought online from eventarc (they are providing the ticketing free of charge to support the event) - https://reg.eventarc.com/
Children in Indonesia must wear shoes to attend school and many of them cannot afford to buy school shoes. Many families choose one child to attend school (as they can only afford one pair of shoes) or the children wear old shoes with holes in them.
The gift would like to support the education of all children. It has been shown that Indonesian children who attend school have increased health status and increased opportunity to escape poverty and achieve their dreams.
The disco will be at Kingfisher Community Centre, Ballajura and is open to the public. We want to support kids to help kids. Help our kids to learn about the plight of children in our neighbouring country!

The gift is a not-for-profit charity that raises money for remote villages in Bali. The philosophy of 'the gift' is based in relationship building for social change. No money is sent to the villages, all support is given in goods and services.
