Europa Art: The Heart of Being Stylish!


The Heart of Being Stylish!

Europa Art donates 1,263 pairs of shoes to Michael Mkhwanazi Primary School.

On Friday, 18 October, Europa Art put their best foot forward, donating 1,263 pairs of school shoes to students in need. Joined by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Barefoot No More and Europa Art’s acclaimed Brand Ambassador, Pearl Thusi, the children of Michael Mkhwanazi Primary School were gifted shoes that will make a real difference in their lives.
While shoes might not be the first thing that pops to mind when evaluating proper schooling, the sad fact is that millions of South African children dream of receiving adequate education and to do so, they walk miles to school every day. Europa Art aims to donate 10 000 pairs of shoes to children this year. Made in South Africa, each pair is innovative in their design, using material that is durable, flexible, comfortable and virtually indestructible.
At Michael Mkhwanazi Primary School in Tsakane, Brakpan, Pearl Thusi took to the crowd, the children giddy with glee at the sight of the stunning actress, entrepreneur and philanthropist: As I stand here right now, I am representing Melina Lambrakis. She is one of the Directors of The Europa Art Group. I am very proud to work with Europa Art not only because of the incredible work they’re doing in fashion but also in paving the way forward.”
Originally commemorating Mandela Day, the Heart of Being Stylish campaign has transformed into so much more. Nelson Mandela himself said: “Our children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” Europa Art, along with their stakeholders, Directors, employees and esteemed clientele, wish to help change the world.
The support of the Nelson Mandela Foundation has been outstanding. CEO, Mr. Sello Hatang, although on leave, made an effort to join Europa Art at the school, sharing his own stories and inspiration in starting the legendary and life-changing Foundation.
Although not present, the Mayor the Ekhuruleni district fully supports this wonderful cause.
