BENEFITING: BECAUSE INTERNATIONAL CORP
My friend, Kenton Lee, has created a simple solution for a huge problem; he calls it The Shoe That Grows. I am supporting this journey to provide shoes for children in Nairobi, Kenya that will last for several years through a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization called Because International, and I hope that you will join me in support.
The Shoe That Grows is a shoe that can grow and expand several sizes and last several years for children living in extreme poverty around the world that cannot afford to buy new shoes every year.
There are 300 million children living in the developing world without shoes, and these kids struggle with health and safety when they do not have shoes or have shoes that do not fit.
I hope to raise $1,000 through this fundraiser to go towards the first batch of 300 pairs of The Shoe That Grows to send off to Nairobi, Kenya to begin to help kids always have a pair of shoes that fit.
