Because International
The Shoe That Grows

This is an idea and a dream. A shoe that can adjust and expand several sizes. A shoe that can last for years and always fit.

There are 300 million children around the world without shoes, and they are getting sick and hurt because of infections and diseases that come through their uncovered feet. These kids cannot afford shoes. Their feet are constantly growing. They need an innovation to change their lives.

Because International (BecauseInternational.org) has been working on this project for the past few years. And now we are in a position to make it happen. A shoe development company called Proof of Concept is helping us create an official prototype for The Shoe That Grows.

But we need your help to make this happen.

We are shooting to raise $21,000 over the next few months. The first phase of our plan is to raise four to eight thousand dollars through a campaign on Crowdrise.com.

Online Fundraiser on Crowdrise.com
Starting Monday, October 15th, we are hosting a 2-week online fundraiser with Crowdrise.com. You can check out our campaign page here - crowdrise.com/theshoethatgrows. Our goal is to raise $4,000 in these 2 weeks. If we can make this happen, we have two matching donors who will donate $2,000 each, totaling $8,000 that will put us through the first two phases of the prototype process. We are so excited about this effort.

We would love your support over the next couple of weeks and months. With your help, we can reach our first goal of $4,000 and make this happen.

From idea to reality.

Here we go.
