Spurred on by the tragic Asian tsunami of Boxing Day 2004 and a near-death experience in his own life, Lee Todd decided it was time to do some good in the world.
Shoe Aid was approached by Keep Britain Tidy & Eco Schools to educate children on the importance of recycling and re-using old and unwanted footwear. Having begun with a sample of 100 schools, we have been asked to go into 17,800 Eco schools across the UK.
In 2018, Shoe Aid was invited to 10 Downing St to discuss what we do; we have both the support of the Prime Minister and some MPs across the current government political parties.
Since July 2010, Shoe Aid has distributed close to 1 million shoes worldwide.
