How & What to Donate
Ten Feet Tall have collected over 20,000 shoes over the last four years and sent them to people who really need them across South East Asia and beyond. Through their partnership with shoe charity Soles 4 Souls, Ten Feet Tall are able to accept ANY SHOES in good condition (adults’ & children’s).
Please feel free to ask your children to write a note to the next wearer to put inside their shoe donations which need to be tied together with an elastic or by their laces / straps.
The Shoe Bank will be located at the check-in points for Rugby and Netball so players can drop their donations before training. Clear out your cupboards and help us make lots of festive feet this Christmas!
Why We Donate Shoes
▪ Preventing disease: wearing shoes stops parasites from being absorbed through the soles of the feet when walking on infected soil which causes huge gastrointestinal issues across South East Asia
▪ Driving micro-enterprise: pre-loved shoes provide micro-entrepreneurs with an income to drive sustainable local economic development
▪ Bridging the social divide: a decent pair of shoes can help those seeking employment to find a job and get themselves back on their feet
▪ Disaster recovery: new shoes are sent to communities affected by natural disasters like fires, floods and hurricanes
▪ Reducing landfill: giving a new life to a pair of shoes helps stop them being thrown away and therefore reduces landfill
