Donate Your Shoes & Empower a Woman
DRESS FOR SUCCESS CELEBRATES FIFTH ANNUAL #GIVINGSHOESDAY WITH ‘IN THESE SHOES’ CAMPAIGN
Supporters across the globe are encouraged to share their most memorable professional accomplishments and donate shoes to local Dress for Success affiliates on Giving Tuesday
You can help inspire women around the world by donating a pair of shoes and posting a the memory of an ‘In These Shoes’ accomplishment, in celebrattion of Dress for Success’s #GivingShoesDay . The philanthropic one-day event urges women to give back by donating their nearly new, professional shoes to local participating Dress for Success affiliates or gifting a virtual and brand new pair of shoes in the form of a monetary donation.
The top ten donors who give the most shoes will be awarded a $75 dollar gift card to ShoeDazzle. In-kind donors also have the potential to do double good as ShoeDazzle will also be awarding the top three Dress for Success affiliates that garner the most total shoe donations throughout North America with thirty $100 gift cards for brand new product.
Since its inception in 2012, the #GivingShoesDay campaign has overwhelmingly amassed more than 17,000 pairs of shoes donated through the organization’s 145 affiliates around the world. This year Dress for Success wants to explore the emotional significance of donating. “When remembering the biggest moments in our lives, the smallest details can take on a larger significance. This year we want our supporters to celebrate giving back with the professional accomplishments they’ve had,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “We hope that the generous donations we receive this year allow our donors to reflect on their own journeys and encourage another woman to succeed the same way they have.”
