Many people we know have shoes they don’t use. And then, there are people who are in desperate need for gently-used shoes! Shoecyclists are the link between the givers and the getters! 

It’s very efficient – We ask for shoe donations and people happily give shoes AND blessings!

It’s totally free – No fundraising ever!

It’s highly effective – We have talked to numerous agencies – homeless shelters, soup kitchens. schools in underprivileged areas and they all welcome this idea.

It’s incredibly rewarding – You really need to give a pair to a homeless person to see it feels!
