The Shoe That Grows deeply impacted our VBS children. They immediately connected with the need for shoes (for school and health), and were empowered that they could be a part of the solution for other children around the world!

Susie D. - La Jolla Presbyterian Church

"The team with The Shoe That Grows made it extremely easy to plug this mission project into our VBS. We had our kids try on the sample pairs of shoes, and it was fun and meaningful to do offerings to support this cause."

Kevin P. - Orlando, FL

"Our students LOVED bringing in quarters and dollars to help other children have The Shoe That Grows. It was so powerful to see them get excited to help other kids!"

Stephanie R. - Nampa, ID

"We loved using The Shoe That Grows as our mission because it was so hands-on and fun for the kids. We did a big competition and had a goal of 100 pairs of shoes - and we went WAY above that! This mission was an impactful way for our kids to be compassionate."

Mary B. - Kuna First Baptist Church

"The kids had so much fun raising money for other kids around the world to have The Shoe That Grows. They loved seeing the sample pairs. And it was easy for them to try to raise $15 for a pair. Very accessible for our kids."

Nancy B. - Nyssa Nazarene Church
