Lose Your Shoes for Young People!


Youth Catalytics’ Karen Vincelette collects donated shoes.

In this Vermont-area fundraiser, we are asking supporters, friends, colleagues and virtually everybody else interested in young people to help them out by donating used or unwanted shoes. It supports our work with youth-serving organizations around the country, and also benefits microenterprise ventures in developing countries like Haiti. Plus it keeps old shoes out of landfills!

All donated shoes are recycled or redistributed by Funds2Orgs to microenterprise partners in developing countries, where they assist impoverished people in starting businesses that feed, clothe and house their families.

Help us reach our goal of collecting 2,500 pairs of shoes by May 31!
