When Zaire Downs saw one of his classmates being bullied for not having nice shoes, the Rochester, New York 7th grader decided to do something about it. The 13-year-old student has spent the entire month of August collecting sneakers to make sure that when the first day of school comes around, everybody will have a fresh pair of kicks. “It’s this boy in my school who gets bullied because he doesn’t have nice shoes,“ Downs told 13 WHAM. “I feel bad for some kids who can’t afford them.”
