CAN YOU HELP US GIVE EDUCATION?
You can set up your very own online pledge website and start giving shoes and education around the world, while collecting these cool badges along the way! Along with building a secondary school for our students, here are some other things the money you raise will go towards:
By raising $50, we can purchase a desk for one deserving student!
When you raise $65 we can install one window in our new Secondary School!
It's hot in the Dominican! $100 in pledges lets us install one classroom fan.
When you raise $200 we can install one classroom door in our new Secondary School!

about RUBEN'S SHOES
It all started with a boy. Ruben's Shoes began in 2013 and was inspired by a young boy named Ruben living in the Dominican Republic. In countries like the Dominican, without shoes kids can't go to school. Ruben's Shoes collects gently used shoes and ships them around the world to those in need.
We give a pair of shoes a second life which gives people in other countries a chance at a new beginning. Along with shoes we also invest in projects that deliver education. Ruben's Shoes currently has over 130 students enrolled in an education sponsorship program which provides the necessary school supplies, tuition, uniforms and meals required for students to attend school, gain an education and have the opportunity for a better future.
