RISE Shoe Drive

We're collecting 10,000 pairs of sneakers!

No, we're not trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. We're holding the RISE Shoe Drive to raise funds for our organization and support micro-enterprise vendors in developing nations.

No need to open your wallet for this fundraiser - plus, you'll not only be supporting RISE, but also empowering entrepreneurship in countries across the planet, where families live on as little as $2 a day, giving people opportunities to help combat poverty.

So how does it work? Drop off your gently used shoes (see below for drop box locations and the kinds of shoes we're looking for), RISE collects and stores them until we have enough to begin shipping them to our shoe drive fundraising partner, who manages the shipment of the shoes to small business owners in developing nations and pays RISE for overseeing our end of the operation.

What kind of shoes are we looking for? Gently worn, new or used running shoes. So no boots, heels, crocs, or sandals, please.
