We have just shipped 300 pairs of Vans shoes plus another 60 pairs of Converse shoes to the orphanage in Tanzania, bringing us very close to our 600 pair quota. This also includes the 200 pairs of shoes we sent last week. The orphanage has 600 kids, all of them blind and never having worn shoes before. This is a donation of at least $18,000 in cost with an approximate retail value of $33,000.
By doing this, we can change the lives of these orphans by preventing the spread of foot fungus, which is their biggest problem for them.
