More Info

Zaire feels that every child should be able to start their school year with a new pair of sneakers to help build their self-confidence and lessen the chance of them becoming a target of bullying. Last year he collected $5,000 and over 300 pairs of gently used sneakers to provide hundreds of children with sneakers to start the school year. This year he will be collecting monetary donations to purchase new sneakers (7/4/17- 8/22/03) and host a sneaker exchange at "The Investment" 8/26/17 Ryan Community Center 530 Webster Ave) where community members can drop off their gently worn sneakers for youth in need to take home with them or sign-in up to receive a new pair.

Zaire appeared on HLN, Inside Edition, WDKX, The Democrat and Chronicle, WDKX, YNN, 13WHAM, Channel 8, Channel 10 & the Brother Wease Show.
