This is a special guest post by Hayley and Jakob in 3/4M
Have you ever heard of Socktober? If you haven’t you really must read this. Socktober is an initiative of Catholic Mission and this year the slogan is, “When I grow up I want to be… ALIVE”. In Jamaica there is a lot of shooting around the community where poor people live. These people have to grab life with both hands just to keep on living it.
Today our school, St. Mark’s, encouraged the students to wear as many socks as we could to support ‘Sock it to Poverty’ day. We also had to bring a gold coin donation to raise money for the kids and poor families to help them to survive and be healthy.
