Donate Shoes to Charity. Shoes have always been a huge part of my life. I am sure that is obvious with a name like Sweet Peas & Stilettos. I know I am not the only one out there who loves shoes. Together we can help put shoes on the feet of people who need them. By providing shoes to those who go barefoot today, they can be protected from disease and infection and can hopefully live a more happy and healthy life. In our own communities, we can help homeless children and families by providing them new shoes too. Every child deserves a new pair of shoes for school.
My New Red Shoes collects new shoes (white & black athletic shoes) for homeless children in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Soles4Souls has a mission of Changing the World One Pair at a Time®. They have helped coordinate the donation and delivery of over 10 million pairs of shoes around the world. Their website has information on how to donate and how you can get involved.
Here are more organizations focused on getting shoes on the feet of people who need them:
Career Closet – accepts new and very gently worn (you wore them once – they just didn’t work out) shoes appropriate with suits and business attire that women re-entering the workforce can wear on job interviews to make a great first impression
Heart and Sole – a program by the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine
These are the very cool sandals I bought in Kenya over 20 years ago. They are made out of old, used tires.
