ABOUT THE 'SHOES FOR KIDS IN HAITI' CAMPAIGN



Shoes for Kids in Haiti was created by CommonThreadz, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to give orphans and vulnerable children in Haiti a chance at a a better life through educational support, clothing, medical aid, family assistance & nutrition. The Shoes for Kids in Haiti campaign is a great way to show your support by purchasing a pair of shoes (or more) for an orphan or vulnerable child. Your gift will make a lasting impression and change the life for a child in need.

The purpose of Shoes for Kids in Haiti campaign is to provide as many shoes as we can to orphans and vulnerable children. Join us in our goal to provide 50,000 pairs of shoes by the end of 2010! 100% of your sponsorship gift goes to shoes for the children in need.

WHY SHOES FOR KIDS IN HAITI?



Shoes help prevent the spread of parasitic diseases that plague over 1 billion people worldwide, and they are a basic human necessity.
The unfortunate truth is that many health conditions can occur even in the toughest of feet. As the skin toughens and thickens large cracks can form, allowing parasitic infections such as hookworm and threadworm can penetrate the skin. In addition, constant cuts and scrapes to the feet and ankles frequently become infected and many of these infections can lead to ulcers which take a long time to heal.
The reality of life for many individuals in Haiti and other developing nations is that having a pair of shoes is a rarity. It is not uncommon for children to grow up in these areas without ever having had a pair of shoes at all.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that there are many hazards associated with going barefoot in contaminated sand, soil and dirty water, but the most obvious public health problem is hookworm disease. Untreated infections can lead to amputation and can even be fatal.
Shoes are often a required part of the school uniform in developing countries. With out the shoes, many children are unable to attend school!
 
Samples of the shoes we buy locally in Haiti for the kids (at times due to supply levels we need to purchase the shoes in the USA and ship to Haiti). Bulk purchasing allows us to receive the best pricing at $10 per pair.
