Do you know that for just $15 you could give a pair of boots for a kid in need?
As we are getting closer to winter, kids in the rural areas of Turkey need your support more than ever! Last year, with the donations we received through the GlobalGiving campaign, we sent 114 boots to children who live in the rural areas of Turkey and have so little.
Last year 228 little warm feet, grateful for the education they were receiving, walked miles to school wearing the boots you donated. This year, with you by our side, we hope to do more! With your support, this year 456 little warm feet could feel the cold a little less and could go to school in their new pair of boots.
More boots mean a warmer winter for more children. And, this means a whole a lot of more happiness! So, we invite you to support our commitment to Boots4Kids project and to continue to be a part of Bridge to Turkey community…
In BTF we never stop dreaming and never stop working for our dreams! And, your donations make everything possible!
Thank you very much for your continuous support to Boots4Kids.
Thank you very much for supporting this important cause.
Winter is already here and especially in eastern part of Turkey the winter is very harsh, under -40 degree weather conditions some children go to school with plastic shoes because of the financial reasons. Last year during the holiday season we sent 171 pairs of new boots to that region with the donations you sent us through Global Giving. In addition to that, this past quarter we sent 124 more new boots to needy children in the same region.
BTF partners with Chi Shoes in Turkey and they deliver the boots to the schools that contacted us for help. After the distribution of boots our field champions ‘the schoolteachers’ follow up with us by sending us the pictures of the happy faces of recipient children. Attached are some of the pictures during the boot distribution at Ataturk Elementary School in Caldiran that is located in the city of Van where earthquake hit last year.
Please consider contributing again to this project during coming holiday season. An average new pairs of boots costs 15 Dollars.
This year our goal is to send at least 1500 new boots to Turkey and so far we were able to sent 1266 boots. We are hoping that with your generous donations we can reach our goal easily.
We would appreciate if you help us spread the word. Thank You.
We would like to thank you for your recent donations. Winter is around the corner, as it is approaching we want to put more effort towards our Boots4kids campaign. Please help us spread the word.
Last year the winter was very rough in Turkey and BTF sent a total of 1250 pairs of boots to needy students. 110 pairs were sent to Van Adiguzel Village School to help the victim students right after the earthquake hit the area.
This year our goal is to send 1500 pairs of boots. An average pair of boots costs about $15. We work with a local shoe company and field leaders to distribute the boots to the students who are in need.
Please let us know if you would like to hear more information about this project and again help us to spread the word.
Attached are some pictures from the distribution to the earthquake victims.
Thank you very much for your support to this very important cause.
Boots4kids project of BTF (Bridge to Turkiye Fund) supplies boots to the financially challenged kids in the rural parts of Turkey. Your donations make this project possible. The brand new boots do more than just keep these children’s feet safe and warm but also help to warm their hearts and boost their self-esteem. Many economically challenged families can not afford to buy shoes for their kids and these children go to school with whatever they can find to wear. Boots4kids’ mission is to give these children access to a pair of warm shoes that will protect them from the cold winter weather.
BTF partners with local manufacturers and distributors to supply the boots. A pair of boots costs an average of $15 and make children smile. Most Boots4kids field leaders and champions are schoolteachers of the children receiving boots. When BTF receives request letters from champion teachers we work on raising funds to deliver the request as soon as possible. Upon receiving the boots, teachers follow up with BTF by sending pictures from the field.
This past winter BTF sent an additional 41 pairs of boots to the Beyazit Village Mehmet Mumcu Elementary School in rural Sanliurfa. Project pictures sent by teacher Busra Disli at Beyazit Village School are attached for your review.
Every $15 you contribute to this project will warm up two little feet and a little heart.
