I'm raising money for a cause I care about, but I need your help to reach my goal! Please become a supporter to follow my progress and share with your friends.
Sending Hope Overseas to Every Sole (SHOES) is a nonprofit organization established to aid those trapped in poverty in a tangible way—by sending shoes. We may not be able to free every person from life in the slums, but we can remove one obstacle from attending school, finding a job, and living a longer, healthier life. Rather than merely shipping goods, SHOES strives to boost Third World economies by purchasing the shoes we distribute from the communities in which we work.
In 2012 SHOES is working towards some exciting outreaches, and we need your help!
1. On October 20th we are hosting our 3rd annual 5k event--SHOES 5k: Operation Indonesia. We are working to cover the overhead costs for permits, t-shirts, advertisements, and insurance. Our goal is to remove all overhead costs so that every penny we raise can go straight to the people we are reaching in Indonesia.
2. We are sending shoes to Nicaragua in November and are needing to cover shipment costs for this outreach. It would also be great to make money above and beyond these costs so that we can purchase extra shoes to send down with the ones donated at our 5K event.
We would love to partner with you and make these outreaches a reality. For a limited time only, we are offering a free 2012 Sending Hope calendar to each person, persons, or organization who makes a donation through Fundly.com.
