Donate a Pair of Old Sneakers to a Youth In Kenya!
Our Organization has partnered with a community based organization in Bungoma, Kenya! This Organization provides vocational training to the youth in Kenya. They work with children in Orphanages. This Organization is in need of sneakers for the youth in their programs. Get Out The Box has chosen this organization to benefit from our Kicks for Kids program. We will be doing a sneaker drive and we would like for you to get involved in our drive! We are asking that each of our supporters mail one pair of used or new children shoes or sneakers to this organization. If each of our supporters mail one pair of sneakers, we will be able to provide over 300 pairs of sneakers to the needy children in Kenya! Below you will find more information on this organization including the web address, mailing address, and pictures of the CEO and students! When sending the Items please indicate that the sneaker donation is from the Get Out The Box Organization!
Also, it is our organization's goal to show the youth in low income communities that there is more to life than their negative reality. We will be doing this through our mentoring programs and our Travel program. Our Organization is planning to send 10-20 youth (ages 14-18) 3 times a year to this school in Kenya. The purpose of this program is to broaden their scope/vision on life and to teach them the importance of giving back and making a difference. Many of the youth I work with come from poverty and violence and they believe that this is all there is to life. Our Organization wants to change this perception ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paxlk5YNkYw ) We are planning to send our first group of students in the Winter of 2010. The students while they are in Kenya will be doing video documentaries of their work and will present their journey/experience with their school, church, our online supporters, and local community. I believe that this program will be life changing for the youth in our program! If you would like to help us fundraise to make this a reality please contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org We are looking to do some great things for the youth in the community!!
Help us get our youth out the box!!
