This event has already occurred!
Transition Professionals is pleased to partner with Shoes with Heart, for a fall fund raising event!
From now through the end of November, we will be collecting shoes for a wonderful cause, to help sustain micro entrepreneurs in third world countries. This should drive will also assist us in raising funds for much needed items in our service to returning citizens in our own community.
Did you know that around the world tonight, children will be going to sleep hungry, and mother’s and father’s will worry about how to maintain a roof over the heads of their families? In developing nations, where systemic poverty makes educational and work opportunities so much more difficult, many people decide to take their destiny into their own hands.
In impoverished countries, hundreds of thousands of people decide to become micro-entrepreneurs, that is, small business owners.
When you collect gently worn, used and new shoes, you’re helping to provide inventory for micro-entrepreneurs to sell in their local communities for commerce and a profit. The vast majority of businesses in developing countries are small family-owned businesses, and through it, people create their own paths out of poverty.
We are contributing to this great cause with a shoe drive. Any shoes, men, women, or children’s are needed. New or used, it doesn’t matter.
Please take a look in your closets and consider donating your old shoes to us for this drive and feel free to pass this email and flyer on to others, schools, churches or organizations so we can get hundreds of shoes to donate.
Please contact me with any questions or to arrange a pick up. Thank you!
