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.

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!
