Over 2 billion people in the world suffer from soil-transmitted parasites and diseases.  The Shoe That Grows is a better solution to help children protect their feet than just regular shoes, shoes that don’t fit, or no shoes at all.  The Shoe That Grows adjusts five sizes and last five years – providing better protection and better health for children.

 The Shoe That Grows is a patented design of an innovative shoe that adjusts and expands.  It was developed in part by a shoe development company in the Northwest called Proof of Concept.
The shoe comes in two sizes: Small and Large.  Each size grows 5 sizes and lasts at least 5 years.
Small = Grows 5 sizes – From Kindergarten to 4th Grade
Large = Grows 5 sizes – From 5th Grade to 9th Grade. 
The Shoe is made with simple materials – leather, compressed rubber, and snaps.  No mechanical parts of gears to break.  Easy to clean.  Easy to use.

Well the final tally of my fundraising efforts is in, as the campaign ends, and with your generous help we have raised enough money to not only fill 2 duffle bags with 100 pairs of shoes, but we have raised enough money for about 15 additional pairs of shoes! I am beyond grateful to everyone's help, because it takes a village to break the cycle of poverty and illness, and create new beginnings of health and education that start with an item as simple as one pair of shoes that will last a child 5 years. Thanks you is not enough!
