My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Shoes for Planet Earth. The Redlands school community helped by donating sports shoes and raising money from a bake sale. I am trying to raise more funds to help send the shoes to remote communities in Australia and Africa to families in need. We take it for granted that we can afford to buy the sports shoes we need and want. The families that Shoes for Planet Earth is trying to help can't afford any shoes and children often walk for kilometres in bare feet to get to and from school. They also don't have shoes to play sport in. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Even if you could give the equivalent of a couple of cups of coffee, it all helps! Thank you for your generosity and support, I really appreciate it! Together we can help get children from disadvantaged communities the gift of sports shoes and give them the opportunity to play sport. From Thomas

About my cause: Shoes for Planet Earth

Shoes play such an important role in everyone’s lives – can you imagine not owning a pair?

Many people have nothing to keep their feet warm and clean and we can all do our little bit to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Shoes for Planet Earth works together with local & international communities to provide recycled running shoes to those in need around the world.

We pack and send shoes to those in need all over Australia as well as many international communities.

These include homeless shelters, youth and female crisis centres, indigenous community sporting groups, orphanages, churches, flood and other disaster victims, African and Asian communities and communities in the Americas.
