Did you know?...
1 in 5 children lives in poverty
300 million kids worldwide are without shoes
20 million orphaned children are shoeless
Shoes are the first step out of poverty.
Ways you can help:
1. Get rid of your old shoes
This is the best way anyone can help. Statistics show there are 1.5 billion pairs of shoes lying in closets around the country. Instead of throwing them away you can donate a pair to us!
2. Give on our website
We are always accepting donations on our website. A little bit goes a long and no donation is too small.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us run campaigns, for shoe cleaning events and much more. When we get donated shoes, we clean them inside and out to make them brand new for children. What’s special about us is we write inspiring love notes and leave them inside the shoes for the children to find.
4. Spread the word
Help us get bigger! The more people know about us the more we are helping the youth! We have social media sites that we love to connect with people on so follow us and send to a friend.
Shoes are often times the most difficult item to get in poor communities, especially for children who’s feet are constantly growing and a pair of shoes can help tremendously toward a bright future.Childhood is supposed to be a carefree time, but kids can suffer hardships, bullying, lower grades and more all because they don’t have the proper shoes.
When kids receive new shoes that fit, statistics show that there is in increase in physical activity and schools report higher attendance.
There are so many ways to help, but by donating shoes you are changing lives for the youth. One shoe at a time makes a drastic change.
