The #LaceItUp Campaign has begun... I am proud to be an Ambassador for Youth Off The Street to help raise awareness about such an important cause.
Not everyone has the luxury of taking off their shoes at the end of a long day. For homeless youth, sleeping with shoes on is one more discomfort to endure...
Homeless youth use shoelaces to secure their shoes to their feet for protection against the cold night air and to ensure their shoes aren’t stolen while they sleep.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED:
1. Purchase the official laces for only $5 by visiting www.youthoffthestreets.com.au
Make a bold statement by wearing bright blue shoelaces until the end of August.
Then share your photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #laceitup to spread the word.
More than 47,000 young people under the age of 25 are homeless in Australia... Lets work together to help provide them with a positive future.
