What is Repurpose?

Repurpose your shoes for a shoe drive fundraiser

Repurpose: (transitive verb) : to give a new purpose or use to

In America, Pinterest, LifeHacker, and other do-it-yourself sites have created a buzz for repurposing ideas. Daily posts continually encourage readers to reuse and repurpose items they already have to create functional or decorative projects. Repurposing is also environmentally friendly and leads us all to sustainability.

Did you know your repurposed shoes can create economic opportunity, stability and hope for individuals, families, and communities in developing nations?

At Funds2Orgs we define REPURPOSE as “reusing with a purpose.”

Most Americans admit to having more stuff than they want or need. They have too many things. Footwear remains unused deep in closets, boxes or in storage in millions of homes. But what good is that doing other than taking up space?

At Funds2Orgs, we want your gently worn, used and new shoes. The footwear provides an incredible economic boost by supporting micro-enterprises in developing nations like Haiti, Colombia, India, and Tanzania. Instead of holding onto shoes you no longer wear or use, give them new life and repurpose them in a shoe drive fundraiser to raise money and change lives in communities around the globe.
