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 to assist 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.
