Donate Your Shoes

One of the more interesting things I saw at the Warrior Dash was the donate your shoes campaign. You could donate your muddy shoes, you must tie them together and they would be given to a 3rd world country that is in desperate need of shoes. Can you image some of the awesome running shoes they will be getting? Now keep in mind, at the time of this photo it was 1:15. The race went until 6:30 on Saturday and all day Sunday. There was 22,000 participants in the weekend event....how big was this pile at the end of the second day?

Waste Management of Los Angeles is teaming up with the Los Angeles Sparks (WNBA) for the 'Bag your Shoes' campaign happening now! The goal is to collect 1,000 pairs of shoes! Come down and "recycle" your shoes, see you at the game! http://youtu.be/YgNkxYssvLc
