On 12 April, Street Kids International will be attempting a Guinness World Record.
To claim this Guinness World Record, Kieran Porter will shine over 200 pairs of shoes in 8 hours.
The aim of the attempt is to raise awareness of the millions of young people forced by circumstances to earn a living on the streets around the world.
Street Kids International sees the potential not the problem in all young people. They support them to develop skills and confidence, to start small businesses and to build better lives for themselves.
On 12th April, Street Kids International needs you to help them break the world record by joining them for 2 minutes anytime between 8am and 4pm to have your shoes shined by the record breaker. The record attempt takes place at Tower 42, 25 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1HQ.
If you have 2 minutes free but are unable to make it to Tower 42, you can show your support by sending a photo of yourself shoe shining to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your photo will be added next to Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs and ex-Dragons Den Doug Richard in this online photo album http://streetkidsuk.tumblr.com/.
Please remember to like Street Kids International on facebook and tweet at Streetkidsuk #streetshine.
Street Kids are also looking for volunteers to help out on the day. If you have a couple of hours free between 7.30am and 4.00pm on 12th and you would like to show your support, please email Emily@streetkids.org. They will be incredibly grateful for any time you may be able to offer."
