10-year-old girl provides shoes and socks for those who don't have any

Rubi's Rainbow of Hope has already helped 15 charities in the Western Cape. The softly spoken Grade 4 learner has a facebook (Rubi's Rainbow of Hope) page that gives details of drop off points for those wanting to give up their old shoes to this worthy project.

All of my friends want to help, another friend of mine wants to collect nail polish so that girls can look pretty for the prom.
