We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for the Ehlers Danlos Awareness Association, and we have the chance to help families in need of economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.   


The footwear provides an incredible economic boost by supporting underprivileged communities. Instead of holding onto shoes you no longer wear or use, give them new life and repurpose them in a shoe drive fundraiser to raise money and change lives in communities around the globe.


We accept any types of shoes for any age group and any gender that are clean & free of stains, have all fasteners in good working condition, have working zippers, do not have frayed edges or pills and have seams and hems that are intact. Please remember these will be given to those less fortunate to wear. We truly appreciate your participation, donations and support!


Our goal is to collect 2500 pairs of shoes by

January 15, 2021!!!  


We currently have ambassadors in the following areas that are available to pick up shoes locally. Please click on our "CONTACT US" page for pickup in these select areas. 



We have Drop-Off Locations within the Raleigh area.

Otherwise, if you choose to mail them to us,

shoes can be sent to:

Ehlers Danlos Awareness Association

By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the  Ehlers Danlos Awareness Association, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives. Thank you so much for helping us achieve our goal!!
