The Shoe That Grows (Great for Shoeboxes!)
Looking to make a difference in a kiddos life this Christmas?? Join me in sending a few Christmas shoeboxes to kids in need this year – filled with lots of fun goodies AND a pair of high quality, long-lasting shoes inside!
But not just any ordinary pair of shoes…a pair that GROWS! 🙂
But first…did you know this??
It's estimated that over 300 million children around the world don’t have shoes – and sadly, families impacted by poverty often can't afford to purchase shoes to fit their kids' fast-growing feet. 🙁 By including The Shoe That Grows in your Christmas shoebox this year, you can help change that!
How do these shoes work??
The Shoe That Grows expands in three different places on the shoe to grow it FIVE sizes, making it last for years! It's made from long-lasting materials, making them durable to withstand the wear and tear.
The newest version of the shoe costs only $20 and fits well in Christmas shoeboxes – it's the perfect “WOW” item and is something that a child can use and appreciate for years.
How cool is that?? 🙂
How did The Shoe That Grows come about??
In 2007, the founder Kenton Lee traveled to Nairobi, Kenya after graduating college. He lived and worked at a small orphanage with some incredible kids. One day, he was walking down a dusty road with all the kids when he noticed a little girl in a white dress walking next to him. As he looked down at her feet, he was shocked to see how small her shoes were. They were so small that she had to cut open the front of her shoes to let her toes stick out.
That was the day that Kenton thought:
- What if there was a shoe that could adjust and expand its size?
- What if there was a shoe that could grow?
And the idea for The Shoe That Grows was born.
SO, if you're looking for a meaningful and practical “WOW” item to add to your shoebox, consider adding a pair of shoes from The Shoe That Grows!
Ready to help?? There are two ways that you can participate:
1. Pack shoes in your shoeboxes – Just go here and select the age group of the shoeboxes you’re sending and order the shoes to be shipped directly to you – all sizes are in stock! (Not ready to order yet? You can set up a fundraising page to raise money for your order of The Shoe That Grows.)
2. Donate shoes for shoeboxes – If you’re not packing shoeboxes yourself, but would still like to send pairs of The Shoe That Grows through Christmas shoeboxes, you can donate to send shoes through their partners who are packing shoeboxes this season.
Keep in mind that National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is November 14–21 this year. If you're planning to add a pair of these shoes to your Christmas shoebox, know that November 2 is the last day to place your order so that they will ship to Operation Christmas Child in time.
