At 15:00 we observe a moment of silence for JL Moshoeu. 15:00 is an hour when Moshoeu took his last breath on Tue, 21 April 2015.

The campaign under the themes "911Shoes" and "ReadingThroughSports" aims to collaborate with like-minded individuals and/or organisations for the purpose of combating social ills on a broader scale. The campaign has 2 noteworthy elements to it; 1st: to collect at least 911 pairs of school and sports shoes for underprivileged children that are based in the rural areas, where most help needed to alleviate poverty is scarce. 2nd: to strengthen, promote and celebrate the culture of reading and storytelling through sports. During this period, various educational activities in sports and arts are hosted by the foundation and the friends of the foundation to help raise awareness about the campaign.
