Imagination Dream Foundation Launches Shoe Drive Fundraiser to Raise Money for Dream Dollars, Charity Event
Nashville, Tenn. – Imagination Dream Foundation, is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser to raise funds to help others live their dreams. Imagination Dream Foundation will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit our cause. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at, Spruce Street Baptist Church, 504 Spruce Street October 8th and October 29th from 10:00am-2:00 p.m.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited.
Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
"We are excited about our shoe drive," said Jennifer Gleaves, President of Imagination Dream Foundation. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us.
By doing so, we raise money for our cause in helping people with starting their own business, higher education, down payment assistance or closing cost for the purchase of a home, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.”
By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the (Imagination Dream Foundation), the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
