Shoes for College Dreams

For the past three years, our friends at Born Shoes have teamed up with us to support Ruby’s Rainbow during our 3-21 Pledge. They fluently speak the language of “what makes a mom feel good ” when it comes to shoes, but they know that what really makes a mom feel good is knowing that there is a world of opportunities and love waiting for her child. For kids with Down syndrome, opportunities past high school have been limited, but we’re working hard to change that.

When Born Shoes heard about Ruby’s Rainbow, they immediately jumped to action: “How can we help? What can we do? We make beautiful shoes! We’ll give them away to help!”

Today, they join us in supporting this year’s pledge (read yesterday’s post if you need to catch up!). Donate $21 or more to the pledge to help fund scholarships for people with Down syndrome to pursue higher education dreams, and you could win an entire spring wardrobe of Born shoes.

How do you enter? It’s easy.

Psssst…today’s International Women’s Day, and I know some beautiful women with Down syndrome who’ve already sent their applications in to Ruby’s Rainbow. Your donation is a celebration of them, their capabilities, and a step toward “Congratulations, you’ve been awarded a scholarship toward your dreams.”

    I have worked in a special needs class and can truly understand the challenges that special needs children’s face. They are some of the most loving students I have ever worked with. Happy to help the cause!
