Foot Solutions Raises the Bar

Wow! That’s about all I can say about the shoe collection drive with Foot Solutions in Kansas City, Missouri. Caroline Martinie was the “mastermind” behind this successful event. She spearheaded a friendly competition between the merchants to see which business could bring in the most shoes by 4:00pm today. The lively competition was fun as stores called customers, encouraging them to bring shoes to the store. One  business ( who shall go un-named) bought new shoes to make sure they had a better chance of winning. After all, the prize was an evening Shoes and Champagne at the Foot Solutions store. By the time we left, over 1,000 pairs of shoes were stacked in the back room.Caroline has set the standards for anyone organizing a shoe drive.

Caroline Martinie, who deserves a raise for organizing such an amazing shoe drive.

Several times, Allan went out to customer's cars to help carry in boxes of shoes.
