BECAUSE INTERNATIONAL CORP wrote -The first project for Because International is The Shoe That Grows. This is a shoe that can adjust and expand several sizes so that kids around the world will always be able to have a pair of shoes that fit. Over 300 million children in developing countries do not have shoes. The normal shoes that people send over to these kids only lasts for about a year because the quickly outgrow them. So instead of sending over shoes year after year after year - we have created The Shoe That Grows. Now kids will be able to adjust and expand the shoe several sizes so that they can always have a pair of shoes that fit.
This online fundraiser is to raise money for the prototype of The Shoe That Grows. We are trying to raise $4,000. This will pay for the first phase of the prototype by a shoe development company called Proof of Concept. And if we can raise the $4,000, then we have two matching donors who will donate $2,000 each. That is a grand total of $8,000! And that will take us through phase one and two of the prototype process!
Can you help us make this idea a reality?
Thank you so much!
Here we go.
