We love hearing stories about kindness. At Angel Bins we especially love shoe Angels, people in the community that collect shoes and donate them to an unexpected school or charity.
At least once per month we get a social media query from someone who has shoes but does not want to host a fundraiser, nor send the shoes to a landfill.
We had such a customer from LA Dreamers Foundation a Cheer Team. The group had completed their Athletic Shoe fundraiser but had a few bags of mixed shoes that had been donated to them. The client Monique, emailed me to ask whom could she donate them to pay it forward.
We paired Monique with a client that was hosting a shoe drive only 10 minutes away. Monique made the donation and the shoe drive was a good success.
This week Becky from Rancho Santa Margarita called us. She said she had a bag of new and gently used shoes she had collected and wanted to donate them to one of our charitable partners. In her area, a Christian school was in the process of a shoe drive fundraiser. We put the two together and Becky met to donate the shoes. Both parties were grateful!
