Shoe Some Love At Eastwood Mall By Sponsoring Kid’s Shoes With Project Shoebox

Put your kids' old shoes to good use! Donate them now!

Press Release:

This June, millions of kids will be going back to school. But for some kids, going to school can get pretty rough as they have to make the long walk on their bare feet.

That is why Eastwood Mall has created Project Shoebox, a program where shoppers can sponsor or donate school shoes so more kids can make that walk to school in comfort.

Located at the 2nd Floor, Eastwood Mall Veranda from June 7 - 30, Project Shoebox offers guests two ways to help kids with no school shoes – they can sponsor new shoes for only P250 or donate their previously loved but still in good condition ones by dropping it off at the Giant Shoebox.

“This June, so many kids are excited to go back to school, with their new books and school supplies. But there are also children who don’t even have the basics, like school shoes. So they walk to school on their bare feet because their education is so important to them. Project Shoebox was launched for these kids – we want to make going to school easier for them even with just the simple gift of a pair of shoes,” said Kevin L. Tan, First Vice President and Commercial Division Head of Megaworld Corporation.

All contributions made to Project Shoebox will be given to the kids of Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines Inc. (OB) through Megaworld Foundation.

Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, Inc. (OB) works to fight hunger, disease, unemployment, illiteracy, and abuse — one family, one community at a time. Through medical intervention and disaster relief, provision of education, coaching for the development of life skills and microenterprise activities, and addressing basic health and nutrition needs, OB exemplifies Christian compassion and benevolence.

OB’s children’s programs include Bless-A-Child, where they address the health needs of malnourished children by providing nutritionally balanced meals, health-care visits and free education, Happy Kids Camps, conducted with the help of local churches and Back-to-School, where they offer educational sponsorships to impoverished children in the form of school fees, supplies and uniforms, and more.

“We’d like to invite everyone to shoe some love! We encourage you to sponsor a pair of shoes or donate your previously loved but still good ones to Project Shoebox. Let’s all work together to send kids to school in shoes,” Tan said.
