August 2012 Shoe Drive

In just 7 sleeps it is on againĀ  šŸ™‚

Click here for an easy to print flyer.

Between July 24 & August 31, 2012 we are collecting gently worn and new shoes which will then be provided to people in need in Tanzania and Australia who are disadvantaged because they do not own shoes.

Shoes create health and opportunities including schooling, employment and sport.

We are looking for most styles of shoes including: thongs, slides, dressier work shoes, sporting specific shoes and sneakers for Children, Women and Men.
*Please no high stilettos, slippers, uggs or shoe boxes.

Donate Today: 1+1=1Ā Ā  (1 Pair of Shoes + 1 Gold Coin Donation = 1 Life Changed)

Your gold coin donation with each pair of shoes will go a very long way, PLUS all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. This is less than a cup of coffee or a can of coke.

Committment to the Environment

The Butterfly MovementĀ is committed to the environment and effective waste management. Donating shoes which would prematurely arrive in landfill is a great support to the environment.

In addition, it is our special request that all donated shoes be donated without accompanying shoe boxes, individual plastic bags or extra packaging.

Tied shoe laces and/or a rubber band around each pair is a wonderful support in so many ways. Thank you!

Thank you

A special Thank You to all our supporters with special mentions to Central Logistics for donating the warehouse space for all the shoes AND Visy for the donation of 3,000 boxes.
