We are collecting gently used & new shoes – any size, type and style. We will be paid by the pound for whatever we collect, the shoes are then shipped to micro-enterprise vendors in developing countries who will sell them to support their families. (Get more details on the organization we are partnering with at www.funds2orgs.com)
Start bringing shoes TODAY! We have a large black box in the lobby of the gym, near the Leotard wall. (If possible, please rubber band pairs together.)
The first 5 team members to collect 25 pairs of shoes by Friday, March 31, will win a $5 Starbucks Gift Card. There will more mini-contests in April and May. The GRAND PRIZE (a Google Home) will go to the athlete that brings in the MOST shoes through the entire fundraiser, which will conclude on Friday, May 12th.
If you are planning to participate in the challenges, please make sure to clearly label the bags of shoes you bring and drop in the box so we can keep track of your total collected amount.
Reach out to friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and post on Facebook, Instagram, & Twitter – ask them for donations – you’ll be helping them with Spring cleaning, helping someone in a developing country feed their family, and raising money to send your fellow athletes to Regional and National Championships… all at the same time!
