I have traveled with Shuzz as well as supported local events and believe that they are a most wonderful organization with an important cause. After seeing children in Guatemala in person and the lack of footwear and the consequences of that, I can not stress enough how important this is for all children.

We have been providing medical care locally and internationally for years and the work that Shuzz does touches so many people. The organization is run by a fabulous group of hard working, local leaders to thrive on giving back. We have donated over 100,000 pairs of NEW shoes through our fundraising efforts and continue to help children all over the world.

I am excited to get more involved with this charity this year. I have helped with their warehouse clean up and distributing shoes in my local hometown for their back to school program. My goal is to go on an international trip and distribute shoes. Love the mission and getting to know this great group!

I wanted to give back to my community and found this organization, Shuzz, online. I signed up to join their committee to help plan their annual fashion show. I was able to meet everyone involved in running the charity and this amazing event they host. After months of planning, the show came to life and was able to raise thousands of dollars to help children in need around the world. I will forever be apart of this organization and the Shuzz team that i now consider family =)

There's no doubt one of the greatest needs of a impoverished child is a new pair of shoes. As a former founder and non-profit executive I directed an organization with a very similar mission years ago. For this reason, I intimately know the dedication involved in sustaining a non-profit organization. My desire to volunteer and be of service has always guided my heart to serve the needs of our children. My service heart led me to SHUZZ. The founder's passionate dedication is self-evident. SHUZZ is a dynamic organization, and the consistent sustainability of the vision and mission is why along with it's bountiful list of volunteers and supporters it has thrived. Not an easy task for a grassroots organization.. but one that should be greatly respected and admired! Karen Morrissey

Shuzz provided over 300 pairs of brand new shoes to our Back to School Extravaganza serving the Broward County School children in 2015. They also brought over 15 volunteers to the event to assist with giving the children the shoes. They are a wonderful organization and we are very happy that they are going to join us again this year.

I've been helping out with this charity for 2 years now and it has been the best experience I have had. Meeting all the kids were helping first had and families makes the entire experience and efforts worth it. I got to meet an incredible little boy and watched the charity and volunteers make a difference just by simple necessities. Truly amazing what this charity does for people

I have been volunteering for this non-profit for several years and to date we have helped over 65,000 impoverished children to have shoes that enable them to safely play and go to school! The charity is 100% volunteer so that all fundraising goes toward our mission rather than administrative costs. We continue to try to expand our mission to help more children and this year started a medical component and performed our first reconstructive lower extremity surgery for a child with a deformity who otherwise wouldn't have been able to walk properly or go to school! Exciting things ahead for this group!

Great nonprofit! Growing steady every year shows they are very effective in serving their target community. At my own events, I have worked with many nonprofits in the past and have to say that SHUZZ has shown us how to successfully make a difference in the world. Been going to their fundraising events since the beginning and always wanted to be a part of it through volunteerism. Had the pleasure to be a part of it and had a great experience. Thanks for all you do! :)

SHUZZ is an amazing non-profit that has progressed from it's humble beginnings to super-star status in 5 short years, helping thousands of children in the US and internationally. It's team has high expectations for itself to continue to build upon it's mission and expand into new regions/countries and to serve the needs of impoverished children in those areas. Shuzz is able to provide these children with shoes that allows them to safely walk in their villages and avoid injury that can cause life-altering disease and additionally this year, began a medical branch. We are able to provide life changing surgery to children with lower extremity deformities that result in ridicule in their communities so severely that parents hide them at home and don't allow them to go to school. Shuzz Medical's lower extremity corrective surgeries give children the opportunity to live a more normal life, walk, go to school, make friends, etc. It will be exciting to see where Shuzz goes from here!

Shuzz is a life changing charity. This year Shuzz started their Medical Program and changed a little boy, named Akem, life forever. Shuzz provided surgery, rehabilitation and shelter for Akem and his mother for their stay in the United States. Shuzz charity has a wonderful group of volunteers that come together to make dreams come true.

Our organization Women Supporting Women is involved in a shoe giveaway to the poor and since it was a new project wasn't sure where to begin. Well we contacted Shuzz and after a brief interview was given shoes for our donation project. With their advice we have now obtained other donations of shoes and have placed shoes on the feet of the poor. We have now distributed more than a million school books to a countrys educational system and have since distributed 100's of thousand pieces of clothing. When we look back we can thank Shuzz because you believed in us and made a beginning easier. Thank You Shuzz and all the wonderful staff !!!!!!!!

This organization is such a wonderful and dedicated group of people who do extraordinary things. I have been to many of the event that SHUZZ held and was very impressed with the dedicated that each member displayed. They have committed their time and efforts to help supply children with shoes that we may take for granted. Keep up the great work and I hope to see SHUZZ reach across the entire globe.

To be a part of such an amazing volunteer group and makes an impact of health, education, fitness and smiles all with a single pair of shoes is rewarding. In the past 5 years SHUZZ has grown significantly from the number of shoes distributed to the amount of volunteer support. I am so very proud of all the SHUZZ has done to date and as the Founder look forward to all the life's we will touch moving forward.

SHUZZ, Is a very unique organization.... The children and families I serve here in Miami were very excited to receive the shoes that SHUZZ donated. A lot of my kids have been wearing the same pair of shoes for the past 3 years and now they are able to walk comfortable with a nice pair of shoes... Thanks to Shuzz for their wonderful donation and community outreach.

Our commitment to giving back to the children of the world is a dedication we take very seriously. All of our efforts and fundraising are 100% given back to the children. I have fulfilled a place in my heart by working with Shuzz.

Helping local communities has always been in the forefront of my life professionally and personally. Shuzz has given me the ability to be involved and help local children that are in need of not only shoes but love. Although Shuzz is a worldwide organization, I appreciate their local efforts. My business has given me ability to be in contact with local organization in need and being able to make the connection between them and Shuzz is a blessing. I appreciate all those who dedicate their time and effort to make Shuzz the wonderful organization that it has become. Looking forward to many more years of happy feet!

SHUZZ is making an incredible impact in children's lives worldwide and in return these children are changing lives. Being able to help those in need fills a part of your heart that can not be replaced. The organizations dedication is impressive. Working year round for the goal of supplying new shoes to underprivileged children can be quite a task. The ladies of this organization are business owners, doctors, accountants and other professionals all making time for a worthy cause. Having the privilege of personally placing shoes on the feet on the needy locally and internationally, I can say, I will never be the same. Thank you SHUZZ, you have forever changed my life and heart.

Shuzz is one of the most amazing charities I have ever had the privilege to work with. Started with a heart for children, this group is led by an almost entirely volunteer group of women and men that want to make a difference in the lives of impoverished children in the US and internationally. The team is constantly minimizing overhead to make sure all funds raised go directly to the children. They are ever searching for ways to expand their goals and reach further with their humanitarian aid missions. Having had the opportunity to see the excitement and gratefulness on smiling faces of the children of Guyana on a recent mission trip, I can truly attest that this charity is doing great things and helping thousands of children across the world! Go SHUZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have received help from Shuzz for our ministry DAR in Guatemala. Both Giuseppe and Rita were kind enough to come to our country and visit one of our communities, around 180 kms. from the city. We were able to receive shoes for 250 children and the next time they visited the country, they were able to donate to other organizations in the city.

Shuzz.org is truly one of the most incredible charity's I have ever volunteered with. The name, the image and the meaning of the charity group full heartedly strives to make a difference by putting brand new shoes on poverty stricken children around the world. Everyone in the group is extremely hands-on and Rita Johnson has worked around the clock to ensure 100% of the profits go to the cause.
