Shoes for Orphan Souls is the largest humanitarian aid project of Buckner International, a global Christian ministry dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children, families and elders. Since 1999, we have collected more than 2.5 million pairs of new shoes and distributed them to 74 countries around the world.
This year, our goal is to place 200,000 pairs of new shoes on the feet of orphans and vulnerable children here in the United States and around the world. But we need you to help make that happen.
How can I help?
- Collect shoes in your community. You can get your church, small group, business, civic organization or family and friends involved. We provide you with a Shoes for Orphan Souls packet which includes everything you need to help make your shoe drive a success. Register here.
- Give shoes. If you’ve already helped provide a pair of shoes through the K-LOVE Drive, thank you! We would love your support to help cover the shipping costs of the shoes through your donation of $5 or more to help provide more shoes to children in need. Make a gift online.
- Deliver shoes with us. Join us on a shoe delivery mission trip this year! Experience what it’s like to be the hands and feet of Jesus when you personally deliver shoes to orphans and vulnerable children. See trips here.
- Pray for our ministry. We believe in the power of prayer and ask you to partner with us in prayer for our ministry and for the children we serve around the world. Download our prayer guide.
