Goodie Two Shoes Foundation
October 16, 2012

I've been volunteering with Goodie Two Shoes for a couple of years now, and continue to wish I could do more. The staff and volunteers are wonderful, and it is obvious how much their loving efforts are appreciated by those they serve. My heart is constantly overwhelmed by the smiles as the kids go through the process and select their own pair of brand new shoes. I know that seems so trivial to those of us who are more fortunate, but you can see the delight and a rising sense of worth as they walk away in shoes they picked out for themselves. I recently heard a grandmother thank us through tears of joy, that we can provide this experience. Yeah, I think Goodie Two Shoes deserves to be on the list of the best.

Goodie Two Shoes Foundation
May 27, 2010

To be able to create such joy in a child by providing them with something so many of us take so very much for granted... a good pair of new shoes... gives me great satisfaction. Goodie Two Shoes makes it very easy for volunteers to do their part. You can sense the heart in the whole staff and it comes through in the smiles, fun and respect they show to those who are helping, and those who are being helped.

The Great!

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

...the smiles of the kids and seeing some of them running and laughing in their new shoes.

More feedback

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

Being able to bring such joy to these children so easily. Goodie Two Shoes has their system down and I was able to be put right to work and felt useful immediately.

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

all smiles and obviously grateful for the efforts of the volunteers.

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

reach more kids and improve more lives by expanding this simple but vital concept.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I checked shoe size, which was fun because I was pretty much the first person to deal with the kids directly and got to watch their nervousness turn into a genuine smile!.
