Rox in Sox 2020 Needs Your Help!
It’s almost time for our annual Rox in Sox event in Kingston, Jamaica and 1 World Chorus is once again asking for donations of new and slightly used shoes for children in Kingston. Each year we produce the Rox in Sox children’s concert as part of the birthday celebration for reggae music legend, Bob Marley. We invite 100 children from local primary schools to attend the event, to enjoy live music, to hear from authors, and to have a fun-filled day of activities.
Each and every one of the 100 students who attend leave the event with a gift bag containing socks, shoes, and books. Many families in Kingston struggle to keep up with everyday living expenses on top of school fees. With a staggering poverty rate of close to 20%, the socks, shoes, and books you help us provide lighten the burden just a little for these deserving families. It’s a wonderful way to help children who need you this Holiday Season!
Here’s How You Can Help:
Step 1: Choose a pair of shoes toddler / little kid sizes 3-10.
Step 2: Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pickup -OR- drop shoes at your school office by January 25th, 2020.
Step 3: Visit oneworldchorus.org and join our mailing list for updates!
Show Kingston’s children that you care and join the celebration for Bob Marley’s birthday by supporting Rox in Sox 2020 with a donation of children’s shoes by January 25th, 2020. Then we hope you’ll join our mailing list and stay up to date on all that 1 World Chorus has to offer.
