Converse DOUBLES the Pledge for Student Debt Relief Campaign

*Now giving away R2 Million towards student debt*

Converse DOUBLES the Pledge for Student Debt Relief Campaign

Due to an overwhelming response, Converse has doubled the pledge from R1
million and declared a R2 million pledge to the #kickthedebt campaign.
Converse acknowledges the need in assistance for students across South
Africa and has decided to extend and increase the campaign and its pledge
to give more students a chance to kick their debt. The campaign has been
extended for another 2 weeks and will end on the 14th March 2021.

The focus of the #kickthedebt campaign is to try and alleviate even a small
portion of the result of generational economic depression. Converse
recognizes and understands the need to back the South African youth and the
campaign aims to make a difference as education is prohibitively expensive,
and as a result, student debt is incredibly high. The issue of student debt
is a prominent issue South African youths face, with an increasing need for
the issue to be erased

Converse has made the level of access to entry for students easy by using
digital platforms. To combat those barriers, applicants can enter and
access the #KicktheDebt nomination form on the Converse e-commerce website; , where friends and family will also be able to motivate
for funds. At the end of the nomination phase, both Converse, the
influencers and a panel of independent judges will review the nominations
and select the final beneficiaries
