“My360Project” Service Fundraiser
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 possible healthier feet and a healthier, more prosperous life.
Even better, 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.
- 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 needy 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 needy 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!
Imagine the impact:
earning pledges to support needy children,
bringing shoes to a community in need
and putting those shoes directly on children’s feet.
It’s a powerful, intimate and unforgettable experience to become so personally engaged with the ones you have worked hard to serve.
Service + Travel = Transformation
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 Uganda, Baja Mexico, Phoenix 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.
