Share Article

The charitable fundraising organization DoingMyPart.com has announced a partnership with Samaritan’s Feet to form the Kicks for Kids Project. In an effort to raise monies to donate 207 pairs of shoes and socks to homeless children in the greater Charlotte area, visitor’s to DoingMyPart.com will now see the slogan “Today You Will Be Someone’s Hero” over a real-time countdown goal of 900 ‘heroes’ to participate in the Kicks for Kids Project. DoingMyPart.com’s efforts to raise awareness and heroes will culminate in a Charlotte event with Samaritan’s Feet as the charitable organization performs its historical process of washing the feet of these children, giving the footwear and offering a message of hope.

1.5 Million Homeless Children in America

When the kids look down at their feet they see nothing but a worn out shoe which represents their level of hope for their life...Let's change that.

With over 70,000 volunteers from around the world, Samaritan’s Feet has washed the feet and donated shoes to around 3,000,000 people in 40 countries. Along with its efforts to donate shoes and socks to homeless children throughout the world, volunteers for Samaritan’s Feet historically wash the feet of the less-fortunate and give a message of hope as the footwear is given. The Kicks for Kids Project will be no exception. "Samaritan’s Feet is the pillar of hope to some of the 1.5 million homeless children in America,” explains DoingMyPart’s Co-Founder Mike Spencer. “We are honored to be working alongside an organization that brings such a positive influence to our youth."

According to Samaritan’s Feet, an estimated 300,000,000 people live daily without proper footwear, and around 1,000,000 die each year as a result of foot-borne illnesses that may be preventable by simple protection – shoes. According to DoingMyPart.com, there is an estimated 140,000 homeless and underprivileged children around the project location of Charlotte, many of which, it can be assumed, without adequate footwear.

DoingMyPart.com’s philosophy of strength in numbers, rather than strength of means is at the forefront of their fund-raising efforts, as heroes are made with $3 donations to the Kicks for Kids Project. Heroes will be able to follow regular updates of the project and both DMP heroes and the DoingMyPart Street Team will be encouraged to help plan, volunteer and execute the actual event with Samaritan’s Feet.
