You may have already read about our great partnership with Soles4Souls. Well, we have decided to not only give to those in need of shoes, but also to give back to our great clients, and our SP community, by having a fun, summer contest, for all our shoe lovers out there. Here’s the scoop:
During the month of August, 2011, Simply Placed will be collecting shoe donations for Soles4Souls. (Read more about this worthy charity here). We will be mailing your donations to a US warehouse, which in turn re-distributes over 50% of the shoes to US residents in need, with the rest going overseas to shoe the poor in over a dozen countries. Simply Placed will be collecting shoes, and $1 for each shoe, in order to cover the cost of mailing shoes to the warehouse.
Here’s the prize-winning part for you: For every shoe+dollar you donate to Simply Placed in the month of August, you will be entered into our contest to win a free 3 hour residentail organizing session (valued at $225). DEclutter= Do Good = Feel Good!
To take part:
For those of you with scheduled organizing time in August, simply give your shoes and dollars to your Simply Placed organizer, and we will enter you into the contest. A pair of shoes plus $2 gets you two entries!
For anyone not scheduled in August, we are happy to arrange to collect your donation, or arrange to meet you with your contributions. For those of you working with groups, either in school or office settings, we are happy to connect with you, and get you boxes to promote a drive yourself, which you can then give to us for tons of entries for YOU to win!
The drawing will take place at our staff meeting on September 2nd and the winner announced here on our blog and in the September newsletter (we’ll call you as well).
Looking forward to mountains of shoes for those in need. Please let us know if you have any questions and good luck to you!
Your Shoe-Lovin’ Simply Placed Team
