I have had the absolute privilege of seeing so many children being lifted up by the good that this non-profit delivers to many children! I have been able to visit with the founder and president of WITS, and the passion that she has for the children that she serves is truly unparalleled! Her passion comes from a very special place, and it is so noticeable and remarkable with all of the time and effort that she dedicates on a daily basis to help serve her community through WITS. It has been a true blessing to see all of the lives that have been touched and improved by Walk In Their Shoes!!

As founder of Walk In Their Shoes, I strive to support children in need. As I focused with new UnderArmour shoes for the children in our local shelters during Christmas has quickly grown to a nonprofit where we are able to support many children in our community and surrounding area of West Texas.
I strive to build their confidence and self-esteem through new clothes and shoes. This year, I am focusing on a duffle bag that will end a child’s use of a trash bag in their move from CPS to shelters. This, giving them their dignity back. My efforts will be seen across the state and reaching out to other nonprofits and store owners.
My goal is to have the BUY 1 : GIVE 1 program in many cities. When a retailer buys one and one is given to their local shelter.
I look forward to seeing these bags in children’s hands for their move and for school use.

With All That I Am,

WITS has involved many kids in need through out West Texas. The nonprofit doesn’t just serve one group they serve many children in need. They build self-confidence through new clothes and encourage tomorrow’s athletes through new track shoes in middle schools and girls softball uniforms in the area. Many trophies and records were broken that year!

The founder of this organization has a heart of gold for all children. Not only do they motivate and support children, I have seen how this organization have made many foster and homeless children from the community and the surrounding areas smile big with gratitude with things they are able to offer them and they are continueing to do so.

I heard about the shoes that they provide for kids that can't afford them. I also how so many shoe manufacturers are also donating. Then I also heard about they're making bags backpack type that are able to carry their school homework lunch and clothes. I like the bag where it has a compartment where its insulated just like a regular lunch bag or box. I'm donating each time I shop on Amazon I am a Prime member so I do shop a lot.
