Mission: The Goodie Two Shoes Foundation provides disadvantaged children or children in crisis with new shoes and socks as well as other items deemed essential for good health and positive development.
Results: The Goodie Two Shoes Foundation strives to outfit 10,000 children annually with new shoes and socks.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 10,000
Geographic areas served: Southern Nevada
Programs: What makes the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation different? Our programming is based on teh premise that we don't just provide a child in need witha new pair of shoes. Rather, we measure their feet on -site to ensure proper fit. We pair them one-on-one with a community volunteer whom takes a special interest and walks them throguht the process. We make them the center of attention,and. most importantly, we EMPOWER them with choice; by giving them the opportunity to select any pair of shoes they want from our traveling inventory of high-quality athletic shoes, just like the ones their friends at school might be wearing. In the short-term, our programming provides simple necessities in a fun and exciting atmosphere. But long after the recipients outgrow their Goodie Two Shoes of choice, we hope the children remember their positive interaction with a caring community volunteer, and the feelings of EMPOWERMENT, which came with making an unrestrained, positive choice and draw on that experience when making decisions in the future.

Off the charts. That is how I would rank the effort and benefits of Goodie Two Shoes.So many children get to feel better about themselves every time they tie their shoes in the morning.Every morning the kids know that someone in the world is trying to help them feel better about who they are. Perhaps the benefit of have a new pair of shoes will lift their grade average just a little or maybe a lot at school. Perhaps the benefit of a good pair of shoes will improve their posture and health. Its is great that a few can reach so many. Keep up the great work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Smiles, happy feet, happy kids, happy parents, happy teachers,what more can you want for?

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find more shoes to change more lives.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The leadership team, the happy feet.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Off the chart, attentive and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide shoes for thousands more children and keep up with the little feet growing faster than the shoes wearing out.

Ways to make it better...

I don't think it can get much better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Not enough money, time, shoes,public support or community awareness. TV and radio stations might provide more free time.

One thing I'd also say is that...

There are many great organizations doing their best to serve the many in need. Young people are the ones who will help in the future with the new young feet coming up. Hopefully Goodie Two Shoes can grow as fast as the number of feet grow and size grows.

Goodie Two Shoes Foundation is amazing! Obviously providing shoes to kids who don't have any is a wonderful wonderful cause. . but what makes GTSF so special is all of the little details that they pay so much attention to. The kids aren't herded through a line to pick up their donated products, each child is treated individually empowering them with choice and attention. Each child selects the shoes that they WANT all the while each child is carefully fit so they receive the shoes they NEED. Organized, kind, energetic and just wonderful to work with are all phrases I have used to describe GTSF. I can't wait to work with them again!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the children who are served, light up as they wear their new shoes shows the results time and time again.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
