AT IN MY SHOES, What we do IS VERY SIMPLE.
WE HELP YOU. HELP OTHERS.
We connect your acts of kindness with those most in need a world away so that everyone can have the gift of opportunity.
In My Shoes was set up in 2019 after Ciarán McHugh, Kevin Grant and Geoff Lockwood visited the Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, home to 2.4m people. In My Shoes ran two pilot appeals which saw the donation of 15,000 pairs of sports shoes which had outlived their intended use in Ireland, but which still have lots of life left in them.
They were then shipped by our shipping partners UPS to less fortunate kids in townships across Africa.
Tim Human, General Manager, CATCH TRUST
Today our charity is striving to ensure we can collect as many donations of no longer needed, but in good condition sports shoes from all over Ireland and the UK.
With the help of our corporate partners we ship thousands of shoes to countries within Africa where they are distributed to some of the most deserving kids in the townships.
