Pledge the Pink Launches Shoe Drive Fundraiser 

to Raise Money for breast cancer

(Strasburg, PA 2024) – Pledge the Pink (https://pledgethepinkfoundation.org) is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser now until May 14, 2024 to raise funds for breast cancer. Pledge the Pink will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit breast cancer. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at several locations including Tellus360, Lancaster, Bespoke_Brewing, Ronks, PA, Uller’s Outdoor York PA, Alltypes Insurance, Quarryville, PA and Sneaker Den, Downingtown, PA.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.

“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Kathleen Coleman, local shoe drive coordinator. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for breast cancer, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to Pledge the Pink Shoe Drive, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
