So there’s this charity event I want everyone to support as a way of giving back to the society. I’m supporting this because there’s absolutely nothing to lose by doing so. In one of the several Sunday School lessons, I learnt something that has remained with me ever since. ‘Any cloth or shoe you do not wear in three months, you don’t need it.’ I found this to be true, except its an item that is meant for a particular recurring occasion. So here is an opportunities to give up those old clothes that are taking extra space in your house. You’re freeing up space and at the same time putting smiles on some faces.
THIS PROJECT, ‘PROJECT LET GO’ is the brainchild of Oluseyi Jude AJANI, a fashion entrepreneur, strategic thinker and change agent. He is a final year student of Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department at Obafemi Awolowo University, he is also the CEO, JANICUTS- OAU, a trailblazing fashion brand. A brand known for making shirts, foot wears, native fabrics and so on. He believes in making the world, most especially his country, Nigeria a better place and letting every person, one at a time, enjoy life. ‘Seyi Ajani is of the Obama philosophical school of thought that ‘change will not come if we wait for some other persons, or if we wait for some other time.’ We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
MAIDEN EDITION: For the maiden edition of this project, we call on young people to bring their old clothings (at least 3) and receive one new one for free. When all these old clothings are gathered, organizations that carry out charity work (we are in partnership with these organizations) would get them donated clothes across to the less privileged and those in dire need of these materials.
This event will be staged at the epicentre of the university, the Students’ Union Building Car Park of Obafemi Awolowo University on the 30th of January, 2015. From the maiden edition, we would go on to accept clothes, books and food items. We would also partner with cognate organizations and also collaborate with entrepreneurs. Seminars will also be organized so as to share knowledge on charity works and entreprenuership.
This epoch-making event is proudly supported and vetoed by the Students’ Union,Jo’s Indulge, JCI, ANUNSA, Heart 2 Heart, JFK Foundation, GossipNation, Neonatar.
