In Support of Ruben's Shoes

Ruben's Shoes began in 2013 and was inspired by a young boy named Ruben living in the Dominican Republic. In countries like the Dominican, without shoes kids can't go to school. Ruben's Shoes collects gently used shoes and ships them around the world to those in need. 

We give a pair of shoes a second life, which gives people in other countries a chance at a new beginning.

Along with shoes we also invest in projects that deliver education. Ruben's Shoes currently has over 100 students enrolled in an education sponsorship program which provides the necessary school supplies, tuition, uniforms and meals required for students to attend school, gain an education and have the opportunity for a better future.
