Post A Box Initiative
We advise donators where shoes are needed and then they can choose the destination of the shoes and pay a given amount to cover the cost of postage for as many boxes as they wish, as often as they wish. We currently send boxes around Australia, to Palm Island, South Africa and Uganda, and we are currently exploring avenues in Nepal and Zimbabwe. All donations are tax-deductible and in return we send the donators emails and photos sent from the shoes-recipients – where possible. So please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org to “Post A Box” to those who have no shoes.
Our shoes are collected from a number of locations. Head to any of our amazing collector outlets and drop off your shoes. Be sure to check opening hours!
There are two types of shoe collectors:
Continual Basis - Retail outlets, gyms, podiatrists, clubs and individuals
Shoe Drive - A one-off event for corporations schools and businesses. *A shoe drive requires a tax deductable gold coin donation for each pair of shoes collected.
Please note: Sports shoes only.
Please click on the 6 step guide for preparing shoes ready for donating. :)
If there is not a collector near you, please contact us for further info.
SPORTS SHOES only please.
NO HOLES AND GOOD SOLES. It is not worth shipping shoes to an orphanage in Southern Africa if they are broken! We want to send shoes that will last a whole winter.
CLEAN! Would you like to receive a dirty pair of shoes? They can be hand scrubbed or washed on a short cold cycle in the washing machine. Best dried in the sun stuffed with newspaper – no tumble trying please as it destroys the shoe.
TIED TOGETHER in matching pairs so we can find the other half amongst all the hundreds of shoes we have. No individual pairs in plastic bags or boxes please – just more to throw away.
SHOE LACES & INNER SOLES – yes please.
THANK YOU for helping us to change the world one pair of shoes at a time J
We would love to hear from you. Become a collector of donations or contact us if you know a community that would benefit from our initiative.
