Share your experience with your friends and family & raise funds for shoes to go to YOUR sponsor group!
Easy. Fun. Meaningful.
Anyone can do it!
This year is even more fun than ever, because. . .
1. You’ll start by picking out your very own pair of The Shoe That Grows (plus pairs for everyone in your family, group, etc who’s doing Wear-a-Pair with you.)
2. Next, you’ll choose a group of kids from Ethiopia or Kenya who will be YOUR group to fundraise for. You’ll have a picture of them and even be able to call/Skype with them!
3. Lastly, you’ll pick a fundraising coach from our staff to help you make the most of your Wear-a-Pair experience.
Then, your adventure begins!
Wear your shoes everywhere you go. . . as you do, you’ll be sharing this awesome #WearAPair experience with friends, family, and anyone else you meet. People can easily donate through your fundraising page, and you’ll have a great time while raising funds for some very deserving kids!
Wear-a-Pair begins on Monday, April 2. People often do it for 1 week, 2 weeks, or 4 weeks – but it’s a very flexible program. Essentially, you can do Wear-a-Pair for as long or little as you want!
Anyone can do Wear-a-Pair. You can do it by yourself. You can do it with your family. You can do it with a group of people. Our smallest size fits kids starting around the age of 4, and our largest size is a men’s size 11. So pretty much anyone can participate in Wear-a-Pair!
Our Youth Small usually fits kids ages 4-8 (Toddler size 11 – Women’s Size 3). Our Youth Large usually fits kids ages 8-12 (Women’s size 3-7). And our biggest size is our Adult shoe for a larger foot (Men’s size 6-11).
You can keep the shoes forever. We don’t need them back. But a lot of people have told us that after Wear-a-Pair they have given the shoes to a child they know or a person they know who works with kids around the world. You can do whatever you like with your pair of The Shoe That Grows.
Nope! Being on social media can often be a valuable tool to help you spread the word, but it is not a requirement.
This year there are several aspects of Wear-a-Pair that YOU get to choose. We are excited for you to personalize Wear-a-Pair so that it fits you perfectly – just like The Shoe That Grows!
No, there is no minimum. We hope as you try your best to raise money for your sponsor group that you will reach your goal – and we are also going to help you get there! But even if you don’t reach your goal, every dollar makes a difference. We truly believe that.
It is $15 to participate. We have this donation for two reasons: 1) It helps us cover some of the costs of sending out a pair of shoes and 2) It gives some commitment and “skin in the game” for everyone participating.
