Project: Share-a-Pair - Operation Winter Boots (Completed)
   
     
     
 
 
   
Project Name Share-a-Pair Operation Winter Boots
Full Description Share-a-Pair, a project to get shoes to Armenia's disadvantaged children needs your help!
Share-a-Pair was launched in Los Angeles by sisters, Kristen and Bridget Abajian. Soon thereafter Sophia Dilsizian joined in by leading the efforts in California's South Bay community. Additional chapters were quickly launched in Chattanooga, TN and Detroit, MI. A modest goal of raising enough funds to purchase, ship and distribute 1,000 pairs of shoes to Armenia's needy children was quickly realized in 2011. Having contacted a major U.S. based shoe manufacturer, Share-a-Pair entered into a long-term partnership to distribute 25,000 pairs of new shoes in Armenia annually. These shoes were distributed to children in need, children with disabilities and children living in the most economically disadvantaged villages in Armenia. Share-a-Pair has distributed shoes in more than 100 villages and 13 cities in Armenia. Witnessing first hand the difficult conditions in these villages, and following the successful distribution of these shoes, Share-a-Pair's team identified the important need for warm winter boots and launched Operation Winter Boots.
Share-a-Pair is able to purchase one quality pair of winter boots for $20. Donations are welcomed in any amount. Donations of new winter boots in all sizes are also appreciated and welcomed. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions and be sure to visit us on facebook. Thank you!
Need Armenia is a developing country that is struggling economically. Life in Armenia's isolated regional communities is very difficult given the lack of economic opportunities. Families in need find it extremely difficult to provide their children with basic necessities such as shoes for school and warm winter shoes.
