bring your old shoes to the walk

Start collecting unwanted shoes from family, friends, neighbors and co-workers for our Shoes With Heart shoe drive during the Miracle Babies walk. Shoes With Heart will take our donated shoes, refurbish and resell them in mass quantities to Third World Countries. In return Shoes With Heart will pay Miracle Babies per pound of shoes donated. That means that if we were to donate 5,000 pairs of shoes at 1lb per pair we could potential earn $3,500 for Miracle Babies. Any and all shoes are allowed as long as they are paired together. Shoes can be tied, rubber banded, buckles secured, shoe laces tied together and placed in a large black lawn bags which are the most durable. Bring your bags of shoes to the walk where a truck and scale will be onsite to take our donated shoes.
