About the Program
Lapcats Launches Sneaker Drive Fundraiser
Lapcats is holding an athletic shoe drive fundraiser to raise money for out cause. Lapcats will earn funds based on the total quantity of pairs of gently worn, used and new sneakers collected. GotSneakers, a social enterprise, will issue funds in compensation for the collected sneakers. Anyone can help by simply donating gently worn, used and new sneakers to any of the drop off locations listed below.
GotSneakers is a unique fundraising initiative that asks communities to reach into their closets, not their pockets! All donated sneakers are redistributed throughout the GotSneakers’ network of small business partners throughout Haiti, Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Ukraine. GotSneakers works with micro-entrepreneurs helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Learn more about GotSneakers by visiting their website at www.gotsneakers.com.
We are excited about our sneaker drive. We know that most people have extra sneakers in their closets they would like to donate rather than throw away. By doing so, we raise money for Lapcats, help the environment, and have the chance to help individuals and families in developing countries who are in desperate need of economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone!
