Aid Watch received the following tidbit from a trusted source. It was posted on a community list-serve:
Does anyone have any old men’s size 8.5-9.0 sneakers they would like to get rid of? Like, lawnmowing sneakers, that sort of thing? I’m running a mud race on Sunday and at the end the muddy destroyed sneakers will be donated to Green Sneakers, a non-profit that recycles old sneakers and donates them to people in need around the world. If you have a decent pair that can withstand a mud run, I’d be happy to take them off your hands.
Despite the great popularity of Aid Watch posts like Nobody wants your old shoes (by Alanna) and A suggestion for the 1 million shirts guy (by Laura) it would be safe to say that all of us in this business still have a little educatin’ left to do.
