With your incredible support, we met our goal of 100 bags of shoes for our shoe drive! That’s over 2500 pairs of shoes that all came from our community. WOW! We cannot thank those who donated enough.
What happens to the shoes now? They have been picked up by Funds2Orgs, who gave gave us funds in exchange for the shoes. Funds2Orgs then distributes the shoes to developing nations. There, the shoes will be given to individuals or small groups who sell the shoes as a “micro-business”. These micro-businesses provide work and a means of support in areas where work can be scarce.
Who would’ve thought that the shoes at the back of your closet would help our animals and families on other continents? Now there’s something you can feel good about. 🙂
