Shoebox Organization

Main aim of the charity

The main aim is to put shoes on the feet of those that need them the most. Expand to more orphanages across South Africa and donate more shoes than we ever did. Walking with our hearts - through the soils of South Africa. The main drive is collect new or used shoes from donors or sponsors and hand them over to children and adults that need them the most.

How the employee got involved and why

We all come from different walks in life, growing up from humble beginnings myself. I have always wanted to stretch out a helping hand. I have been involved in community work and associated myself with charitable organizations early in my career and I have always wanted to start my own. The idea always sparked for a while, but only became reality in beginning of 2021 and that's how ShoeBox was born. Walking with our hearts.

What work does the employee do for charity

I collect new and used shoes and donate them to people that need the most. About 140 pairs of shoes was donated in 2021 to Rainbow Sparrow village. An orphanage housing children and adults from different backgrounds and struggles. Shoes to be donated in 2022 are not counted yet, but it is expected that the 2021 record will be beat.
