Element - - Upfront -

ChildFund New Zealand is ask­ing fathers around the coun­try to bare their souls and soles to help chil­dren in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries this Fa­ther’s Day, by ask­ing them to go bare­foot. The pur­pose is to join an on­line cam­paign in which ChildFund is en­cour­ag­ing Ki­wis to gift a pair of es­sen­tial shoes and socks to a child in need this Fa­ther’s Day. ChildFund New Zealand CEO Paul Brown says shoes and socks are lux­ury items for many chil­dren in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries, and at just $23 can pro­vide a truly mean­ing­ful gift for Dad this Fa­ther’s Day. “In Africa it is com­mon for chil­dren to walk an av­er­age of four hours each day to and from school, in blis­ter­ing heat or freez­ing cold with no pro­tec­tion on their feet from nas­ties.” Join Kiwi dads in sup­port­ing ChildFund New Zealand this Fa­ther’s Day by do­nat­ing $23 to gift a pair of shoes and socks via
