Nov 22, 2015 Our world where Excess and Deprivation live together…

$8,500 pairs of sneakers. Sneakerheads. People with thousands of pairs.

On the other side,¬†according to Second Harvest Food Bank, 1 out of 4 individuals in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties are at risk of hunger. They struggle for food and any pair of shoes on their feet is a luxury…

Let’s change that! Be a shoecyclist

Sept 14, 2015 – Thank YOU, Loavesfishes.org

Loavesfishes

We had a touching conversation with Hyru at www.loavesfishes.org¬†She told us that they serve dinner to about 70 guests on a daily basis and many of them are homeless. She said they would welcome gently used shoes and that they could use a lot of shoes…She also gave her cell phone for working out logistics, so we can call her before our trip. (Please see details in the donation list)

She said Shoecyclist kids were doing an amazing thing by helping our community – We feel it’s people like you Hyru, who deserve all our gratitude.
