You know those shoes in the back of your closet that scream.”I grew up watching “Friends”’? Team Nest Builder wants to help YOU get rid of them while doing good for Sussex County children, through the Sojihuggles Children’s Foundation.

Now through May 15th, donate your gently worn, used or new shoes to help underprivileged children in Sussex County while supporting micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations.

Any and all footwear still worthy of wear, adult or child, may be donated:  dress and/or casual shoes, boots, sneakers, sandals, high-heels--it’s all good!

The amount raised is determined by the total weight of shoes collected. 100% of the funds received directly supports children in need.  Sojihuggles provides diapers, toiletries, food, clothing, eye exams/glasses, and/or dental/medical care including hearing aids and epi-pens.

All donated shoes will be redistributed to micro-enterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a for-profit social enterprise, to be used in developing nations to help impoverished people start their own businesses.

600,000 MILLION pairs of shoes end up in landfills in the U.S. alone every year.  Worldwide, 300,000 people can not afford even ONE pair of shoes.
