Warm Boots to Needy Kids for Tough Winter Days

Van Adiguzel Village Earthquake Victims
Van Adiguzel Village Earthquake Victims

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.
