This is a great project that some of my friends from high school are doing. Please HELP if you can!

So, I’m writing to ask if you have any old running or athletic shoes, if you’d be willing to donate them to Sam’s students in Lesotho. Any size will do. I sent out an e-mail last week and got an overwhelmingly positive response, including some from a couple key people who are stepping up to help in organization. Because of them, we have four “collectors” for your convenience. Contact the following people and they will work on making the easiest exchange possible:
If you live in Columbia or Myrtle Beach, SC contact Stephanie Warren at [email protected]
If you live in Clemson, SC contact Hannah Oakley at [email protected]
If you live in Charleston, SC contact Claire Sparks at [email protected]
If you live in Denver, CO or don’t live in SC at all, contact me, Rachel Sparks at [email protected]
The projected ship date will be May 1, so if you could get your shoes to one of us by then, that would be wonderful. If you want to help but don’t have any old shoes, we will gladly accept any monetary donation you are willing to give to cover shipping costs. It will probably be easiest to mail all money to me so that I can get it to our collectors evenly. Also, invite all your friends to this event. You never know when a stranger might want to help out, but they can’t help if they don’t even know about it!
Thanks so much, Rachel
