However, the sad fact is that for people in the poorest communities around the world even one pair of shoes is a luxury and some parents are unable to afford shoes to protect the delicate feet of their children. Having their own pairs of shoes can change childrens’ lives in unexpected ways, such as wearing shoes could be a requirement for them to attend school.The good news is that big hearted shoe lovers are working to make a difference to people’s lives by donating lightly used shoes to help people in need. Many charities and relief programs now collect used shoes, including sneakers and fitness shoes such as fit kicks, which are then put to a variety of purposes. For example, the shoes and sneakers may be donated directly to people who need them. Or perhaps they are provided to enterprises in developing countries to refurbish and sell, creating employment which allows people to earn money for their families.
