EuroSunday East Bay - November 2012

It's our last monthly meet for 2012. Location: Starbucks 4000 Blackhawk Plaza Circle, Danville, CA Time: 8am - 11am Let's end on a high note. Bring your car, friends, family members...heck bring your neighbors.

For the last fundraising event of 2012 that EuroSunday - East Bay will be participating in, we will be helping out Soles4Souls. Soles4Souls provides shoes to the millions of children and adults around the world who cannot afford a pair, please visit their website at http://www.Soles4Souls.org for details. We will have a bin for collection. They will accept all types of shoes: athletic, running, dress, sandals, pumps, heels, work boots, flip flops, just as long as they are new or gently worn. New and high grade used shoes are earmarked for crisis relief distribution in the United States and abroad. Lower grade used shoes and shoes inappropriate for crisis relief (e.g. high heeled shoes) are provided to micro-enterprise programs in developing countries such as Haiti, Tanzania, and Honduras. Shoes that cannot be used are recycled into clean energy at an energy-from-waste facility in Alabama.

 Edit on 11/9/12 - Not only are we collecting shoes for the above fundraiser, I have added on another charity as well. Please raid your drawers for those hotel toiletries you took...I know people do this because I'm guilty of it. We will be collecting unused hotel toiletries and sample size products for Alameda County Shelters. There are 22 shelters throught Alameda County. These items could include: shampoos, conditioner, lotion, bar and liquid soap, q-tips, cotton balls, small combs, feminine products, etc.

Thank you all!

    i have added another charity as well. So not only will I collect shoes for the Soles4Souls. I will also be collecting hotel toiletries. Please go through your house and see if you can help with either one or both charities. Thank you everyone!

    As we pray for the people affected by Hurricane Sandy, let's praise why not for profit organizations like Soles4Souls were created. I cannot guarantee that the shoes collected will go directly to those in need in the East Coast. Please look in your closets for shoes you do not need and bring them to our last EuroSunday East Bay meet of the year. I know I have some!

    Wish the meetups were later in the AM, such as 10am. 8 AM is too early for some! ;)
