A new year means time for a shoe overhaul!
So you're wondering what you should do with your old shoes; well then why not donate them to a charity of your choice. Many people around the world do not have shoes because to them shoes are a luxury and food is a necessity. So given the choice between the two the most obvious one would be food. This is why donating is a great way to help people in need. There are so many Charities that accept old and new shoe donations. One charity that accepts shoe donations is Donate your old shoes . org. Their mission is to put shoes on the most in need worldwide. All you have to do is place your shoes in a box and send it in. For more information of this charity visit http://donateyouroldshoes.org/.
Cash donations is another way to donate to a charity. Charities prefer cash donations because cash donations make it easier for a charity to be able to provide more services to the people in need. Some people require special shoes due an injury or birth defect so cash donations can help the charity purchase those shoes. If you are interesting in donating cash you can visit anyone of the following charities: American Red Cross, Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Goodwill and Yele.
Note: if you are planning on donating to a charity, please make sure you are donating to a legitimate charity. There are a lot of scams out there especially due to the recent events in Haiti. For more information regarding the legitimacy of charities please the Better Business Bureau. http://www.bbb.org/us/charity/.
