Teammates at the Chennai Ultimate Frisbee are banding together to collect old pairs of shoes and donating them to IndiCorps, a non-profit organization that’s helping under-priveleged slum children.
The Chennai Ultimate Frisbee team had travelled to Ahmedabad to play a friendly tournament when they found a few kids in the Ahmedabad team play barefoot. The kids had excellent skills and this got a few of the team members to think what they could achieve if they had good support.
The team members have begun an ‘Used Shoe Program’, with each of them adding a pair of their used shoes. I rummaged through my pile and found a pair that can be used. Will have them cleaned up and hand them over during the next game.
If you would like to contribute your old pair, please coordinate with Karthikeyan (KK) who is spearheading this initiative. He can be reached at karthikeyan.vijayakumar @ gmail.com and 9884217276.
IndiCorps is helping over 7000 kids. So, any shoe size is ok. Right from tiny tots to the big sized ones. What would be nice though is if you could help wash the shoe once and giving it in a usable condition. Thanks in advance.
