Here’s an easy way to donate to Share Your Soles: Visit Go Fund Me
My name is Mona Purdy and I am the founder of Share Your Soles. Share Your Soles is a non profit, 501(c)(3). We have been blessed the past 16 plus years with warehouse space either donated or very low rent. We collect gently worn/new shoes, select medical equipment and are helping build literacy centers in 3rd world countries. We currently reside in Chicago on the South Side which has been going through some harsh times. Between the CPS (Chicago Public Schools) closing, businesses shutting down and active gang activity on the rise this charity offers children in the community a place for inspiration, education, opportunity and guidance as well as support.
The reason I am reaching out to you is the organization is in peril. We are trying to find a new location but it is my heartfelt belief that these kids would suffer if we were not here.
There is a few potential buildings on the South Side for sale that would allow us to expand our mission, helping not only our community here but those living in distressed areas around the world. I guess you might say we are at the crossroads.
Please consider getting involved with us so we can continue making our world a better place.
