1st container

In 2013, our founder Kelly decided to start a project called Ruben's Shoes. Her intention was to collect a few hundred pairs of shoes from her friends and send them over to Ruben and his community in the Dominican Republic.

The word of this project spread like wild-fire and within 6 months we were shipping a 40' container with 11,747 pairs of gently-used shoes!


2nd container

In 2014, after the success of our first container and working with the Dominican Starfish Foundation, we shipped our 2nd container with 12,224 pairs of gently-used shoes to the Dominican Republic!
