N1,019,347.05 raised! We far exceeded our GOAL!

Sometimes you set-out to create a picture to drive home a message but sometimes that picture just happens accidentally.

We originally set out to to shoot some pictures to illustrate why the children in the community needed rain-boots … when a child with only a pair of slippers ran across our shoot. And that was the picture we ended up picking.

Because it illustrated the reality of the situation, where kids playgrounds are glorified garbage heaps meshed in water.

GOAL: 800 Rain Boots

We are working to get 800 rainboots distributed to 5 different communities from Makoko to Bariga to benefit 800 children. The rainboots will help protect their feet against the spread of germs in a community where kids roam around bare footed. We are working to raise N800,000 to buy 800 pairs of boots. The cost breakdown is below:

Size 24 for 1-3 year olds (N900) * 400 = N360,000

Size 26 and 28 for 4-12 year olds (N1100) * 400 = N440,000

Total = N800,000

If interested in helping out, do send donations to Okechukwu Ofili GTB #0006668126 with the note “800 boots.” Amount raised will be updated daily on ofilispeaks.com.

If you don’t have anything to give, feel free to donate a tweet or facebook share. Also drop free advise below, in case there are ways we can get the project done faster and even cheaper.

Be awesome!
