Buying new clothes and shoes as we outgrow them is a common thing for many of us living in the United States. Kids grow so fast that it seems like we’re replacing their shoes on a daily basis! Being able to replenish apparel that doesn’t fit anymore is fortunately a luxury many of us have.
But what about people from other countries who are less fortunate? What they can get from charities, especially for children, can be quickly outgrown or worn out. Which raises the question, how can you donate clothes that last AND fit properly to those people that need it most?
Kenton Lee, Executive Director of the nonprofit Because International, got a brilliant idea while working with orphans in Nairobi, Kenya. He has developed an expandable shoe that can grow up to five sizes and is durable enough for all activities. The idea came to him when he saw children in Nairobi running around barefoot or in shoes that were too small for them.
This shoe, which has snaps and straps all over it, can be adjusted in three different parts. The front, the sides and the back — providing ample room for any foot to grow in!
Watch the video below to learn all about this amazing shoe and see how it can do wonders for the individuals living in poor countries. It is the first step in a greater mission to provide for those in need! And is also an amazing invention that I’m sure many parents wish they could get their hands on!
