My360Project + Quo Vadis = Partnership
Quo Vadis Travel and My360Project are both here to help people find their path in life.
That’s why we have teamed up to offer exclusive service programs built around “shoe give” experiences and meaningful, sustainable community service.
What is My360Project?
There are over 300 million children walking barefoot in the world. Healthy feet are needed to access water, food and education.
My360Project has found a way to literally help save children’s lives with well-fitting shoes that make healthier feet and a more prosperous life.
At the same time, we have developed a jobs program that empowers economically fragile individuals to help build these shoes, while building their own futures.
A Perfect Blend of SERVICE & FUNDRAISING
Working individually, or working together as a travel group, you can collect tax-deductible pledges that provide My360Project shoes for vulnerable children.
- Each pledge is $35.
- $25 of that pledge goes to building and shipping a pair of shoes for a needy child.
- $10 of that pledge goes toward your travel tuition (My360Project sends these funds directly to Quo).
- BONUS: every pledge is tax deductible* for the donor! (see * below)
So, for instance, $350 in pledges provides 10 pair of shoes and $100 toward your travel tuition.
Where the Rubber Meets the Road
If working individually, your shoes will be added to a group donation and delivered to a poverty stricken community. You’ll receive photos of children wearing the shoes your pledges provide!
If you’re part of a travel group that meets an established minimum number of pledges, you’ll deliver the shoes in person to a community on your travel program. You will:
- meet and get to know the children who will receive these shoes
- perform a hands-on service ceremony in which you wash and care for the children’s feet
- help them into their new shoes
- demonstrate how the shoes are designed to expand as young feet grow, and
- spend time playing with them as they break in their new kicks!
Who builds the shoes?
My360Project’s “Shoe Artisans” learn to build these shoes in at-risk communities around the globe. These craftspeople include veterans, survivors of human trafficking, aged-out youth, people in recovery, and economically challenged people in discipleship programs. Currently, artisans work in Phoenix as we expand building operations to Uganda, Baja Mexico and Boise. As My360Project expands to new regions of the world, training of new artisans expands to those areas.
The developing world needs help in getting adequate food, water, and medical aid. These are necessary causes. However, there are over 300 million children walking barefoot in the world, and healthy feet are needed to access water, food and education. We have found a way to help save a child’s life with well-fitting shoes that make healthier feet possible.
