ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Funds2Orgs, the leading shoe drive fundraising social enterprise in the United States, today has announced the launch of its subsidiary brand, Sneakers4Funds. Sneakers4Funds is targeted to schools, PTA/PTO organizations and team sports groups who have the capacity to collect gently worn, used and new athletic shoes for their fundraising campaigns.
Wayne Elsey, Founder & CEO, Sneakers4Funds said, "We are launching Sneakers4Funds in a big way. To make that happen, we've created the 30-Day Strive4Good Challenge. Essentially, schools and other sponsors who decide to do an athletic shoe drive fundraiser can nearly double the money Sneakers4Funds will pay them for the athletic shoes they collect. And, as we do with Funds2Orgs, the shoes collected help micro-business owners in 25 developing nations around the world. Athletic shoes are the mode of transportation in developing nations."
Schools, PTA/PTO organizations and sports teams will have a unique opportunity to collect only athletic shoes to raise funds.
Elsey added, "Due to the incredible amount of experience we have working with schools and school groups across the country, we are excellently positioned to serve this market very well. Our experience shows us that educational institutions and youth groups can do very well in fundraising by gathering gently worn, used and new athletic shoes."
