Would you donate used shoes?
Tonight there was a flyer taped to my door from Green Eyes in Africa. It said, "We don't want your money, just your unwanted shoes -- all sizes and conditions."
In the past, I've only donated shoes which were brand new, but never worn -- didn't fit right, didn't go with anything or just not my style. I know it's stupid to buy those in the first place, but I have.
DH and I made a cursory pass through our closets and boxed up 19 pair of boots and shoes from really worn to new condition. We really needed to get rid of these.
I googled the organization, and they actually appear to be legitimate, so I went through my closet again and found another 10 pair. It feels great to get rid of 29 pair of shoes, and if it helps orphans in Africa, that's even better! They're coming tomorrow, and the shoes are boxed up and on the porch, so it's unlikely I'll retrieve any of them.
