Courageous Girls Community,
During this month of thanks and giving, Courageous Girls, in partnership with Because International, is raising money to send The Shoe That Grows to refugee children and families around the world! We are SO excited for our CG community to link arms and love 350 refugees through the gift of a new pair of shoes.
The Shoe That Grows was developed for kids impacted by poverty, expands five sizes, and lasts for years. During this pandemic, many non-profits and ministries have been affected and we thought our Courageous Girls could bring prayer, ingenuity, and hope to kids in need.
The shoes will be distributed by Lifting Hands International, a non-profit organization that works with refugees around the globe. Through Lifting Hands, these shoes will be sent to Bangladesh, Tanzania, and Afghanistan.
A core value of Courageous Girls is the opportunity to model a servant’s heart to our daughters through gifting our resources of time, innovation, and financial contributions to others in need. The health landscape requires a deeper level of innovation as we serve this year, but raising funds for these shoes can be done from the safety of your home through a number of exciting ideas…many of which are not yet realized by your own daughters!
CG groups around the globe can unite for one common goal to raise funds to buy 350 pairs of The Shoe That Grows. You can either partner with your CG group or work with your daughter (and community) to raise funds.
- Pray about donating directly as a family.
- Purchase CG swag as a Christmas gift for your Courageous Girl during the month of November and 20% of the proceeds will be donated to Because International. Win/Win!
- Connect with your CG group and see how the girls might innovate and fundraise this month.
Challenge the group to purchase 1-10 pairs of shoes. CG groups have sold cookie dough, baked goods, created a gift basket to raffle off, car washes, sold arts and crafts, etc.
- Share this vision with friends on social media = the more the merrier!
- Check with your employer about donation matching opportunities.
Our goal is to purchase 350 pairs of shoes for children in need by November 30th! Are you in?
