MADD Loudoun and Buzz Butler are proud to participate in the MADD Loudoun used sneaker drive fundraiser. In the spirit of environmental and economic sustainability, we have partnered with Gotsneakers, a sneaker-recycling organization and social fundraising platform, which will compensate MADD Loudoun for every pair of sneakers that we collect. There is no limit to the amount of money we can raise. The more sneakers we collect the more MADD Loudoun can earn.
The request is simple: Clean out your family’s closets of all unwanted pairs of men’s, women’s & children’s sneakers & athletic cleats. This program is designed to motivate our community towards the collection of wearable sneakers (which will be given to those in need). The sneakers that are damaged are processed & ground into surfaces for playgrounds, gym floors, tracks, outdoor courts, & synthetic turfs. Please leave the sneakers (pairs tied together) for Buzz Butler to pick up on your delivery day.
The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking. Buzz Butler’s mission is to deliver affordable beer and wine to your home, while keeping our roads safe from drinking and driving.
After the sneakers are collected, Gotsneakers will process and distribute them around the world; specifically, within impoverished nations using micro-enterprise partners helping those in need.
It is estimated that over 200 million pairs of sneakers are thrown away each year in America’s landfills and that over 600 million adults and children worldwide live barefoot.
We can touch the lives of thousands by simply cleaning out our closets and collecting our unwanted sneakers, athletic cleats We look forward to everyone’s cooperation and we will report the results after the fundraiser. Let’s make a difference together.
“One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.”
