Perpetual Prosperity Pumps Foundation.
Don’t know what to do with your used running shoes? Bring them to us!
We need unwanted athletic shoes to support the Perpetual Prosperity Pumps Foundation, (PPPF) – a Delaware Not-for-Profit foundation that reuses/recycles used athletic shoes. Their mission is to provide all the necessary tools and training to the poorest of rural farmers in Ghana, West Africa. All of their activities and programs in West Africa are 100% funded with used American athletic shoes.
How it Works:
The vast majority of Africans cannot afford new shoes. PPPF provides used athletic shoes to street vendors in West Africa. The proceeds provide tools, training, and technology to the poorest rural farm families. Instead of spending 100 years in landfills, your used running shoe donation can help regenerate farm land in African villages while creating prosperity with a bottom-up approach — one village at a time. Get all the facts at WWW.PPPAFRICA.ORG
How You Can Help:
Bring in your new or used - but not abused – athletic shoes. PPPF needs running shoes (sizes 7 & up) and soccer cleats all sizes. Please tie the laces together.
Where to put your shoes?
Look for PPPF’S collection box near the door. Local Action with a Global Reach!
Help Adopt a Family:
With 600 pairs of donated shoes, PPPF will adopt an African family on our behalf. The family will receive organic farming training as well as the tools, seeds, trees, and livestock to increase their productivity 1000% or more. We will receive a handmade banner of gratitude from West Africa. The banner will bear the name of our adopted family and the name of our store. We will also receive a photograph of our adopted family holding the same banner!
