HOW TO RAISE FUNDS FAST!
Raise Funds by collecting used shoes!
Let’s break down why running a shoe drive to raise funds is so awesome, then we will share with you our tips and tricks to successfully run a shoe drive to raise money in less time than you think! By collecting new and gently worn shoes from your friends, family and community you are helping to keep landfills empty. No need to stand outside your local grocery store, trying to sell things people don’t want or need to strangers. Your shoe donation boxes allow people to get rid of clutter, without adding to their trash pile. Furthermore, all the funds raised can go to whatever needs you have, right here at home! These needs can be a local charity, buying new uniforms for your basketball team, adoption costs, or simply to help you pay rent! You make your own rules!We love supporting our locals, but there are still millions of families overseas in developing nations who need our help as well! This is where running a shoe drive gets even cooler! All the shoes you collect will go overseas to South America and Africa to female micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations who resell the shoes. This allows them to gain financial independence, and support their families, all while putting much needed footwear on their community. Talk about a full circle! All with one shoe drive you have now raised money, recycled, reduced carbon emissions from landfills, and helped those in third world countries!
Need to raise funds fast?
It is no secret that time has seriously passed by us this past year like a bullet train. We have been away from school, work and our friends and 2020 just passed us by!

The clock is ticking once again, and while we are still social distancing, we need to start putting a little cushion back into our fundraising pot.We are still not quite at the point where we will be having huge concerts, or indoor events to raise funds this year, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have an equally successful fundraising event! A shoe drive doesn’t need to take all year, in fact you can raise over $1100 in just one weekend with the right outreach and the right help. That is why we have come up with a 10-point checklist for you to go through and keep in mind to knock your fundraising event out of the park in a shorter time than you expected!
