Spring Cleaning


          Fresh air flowing, sunshine glowing, and birds singing glorious songs announce, in a harmonious rhythm, that spring has finally sprung! This means it’s time to come out of your winter hibernation, ditch the old dirty snow boots, and start shopping the spring seasons must-have shoe apparel.  You indulge yourself with sandals, wedges, and espadrilles until your closet resembles the stock room of Macy’s.

Sooner or later, you have too many shoes for just one pair of feet, and buyer’s remorse is keeping you up at night. These are signs you, my dear, have caught Spring fever.  I’m afraid there is only one cure to the retched Spring fever, which is spring-cleaning.  It’s time to clean out your closet and donate your beloved shoes to Shoe Revolt to spread your fashion flair and, more importantly, help others severely in need.

Shoe Revolt is a non-profit organization that resells previously loved shoes to fund human trafficking victim programs across the United States. In the United States alone, commercial sex trafficking is a billion dollar industry, and just as the fashion industry does every spring, it continues to thrive.  Shoe Revolt fights this evil injustice with the good of fashion, shoes specifically.

Those entrapped in sex trafficking rings need rescuing followed by intensive therapy, medical care, education, job skills, nutritious food, and trauma counseling.  These facilities are imperative to a victim’s recovery; Shoe Revolt needs your help and fashionable footwear to revitalize the lives tarnished by domestic human trafficking.

Clean out your closet and donate your shoes to Shoe Revolt!
