Donate Shoes to Benefit

"The North Jersey Sanctuary For Exotic Birds"

Shoes For Parrots Drive

is Conducted by Under My Wing Avian Refuge,

The North Jersey Sanctuary for Exotic Birds

Dates: March 20, 2014

To June 15, 2014

Funds raised will help maintain Operational Cost of the refuge while benefiting microenterprise ventures in developing nations and keeping old shoes out of local landfills.

In the US alone, approximately 630 million pairs of shoes are thrown away per year. The materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. By donating your gently worn, used shoes to the UNDER MY WING, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference. All donated shoes will be redistributed to microenterprise partners through Funds2Orgs and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start, maintain, and grow a unique business opportunity to feed, clothe, and house their families.

“We are very excited to be conducting this shoe drive in WANTAGE NJ" notes UNDER MY WING AVIAN REFUGE "This campaign will raise funds that directly benefit UNDER MY WING AVIAN REFUGE. The additional advantages of diverting shoes from the waste stream to create commerce and sustainability in peoples’ lives make this a win-win for everyone. Our GOAL is to collect over 7,500 pairs of gently used shoes. Footwear of all sizes, men, woman, child, all season shoes, boots and all sport shoes and sandals. The only way we can do that is if community members step up and help” said Ashfield.

Individuals can help by donating gently worn and new shoes.
Any style, any condition shoes accepted.

We are collecting now through June, 15, 2014
