The charity, which was founded in 2009 by Paradise Valley resident Lori Goldberg to provide basic needs for impoverished children in Haiti, teamed up with Cardinals Safety Adrian Wilson, Youth Against Poverty founder Shawn Esmaili and Scottsdale Waterfront to sell brand new children’s, women’s and men’s athletic shoes from brands like Puma, Converse, Vans, Nike and Adidas at prices as low as $20 – the proceeds of which will benefit a medical clinic in Haiti. “In Haiti,” says Goldberg, “medical care is non-existent, except for the extremely wealthy. When we reach our goal of raising $100,000, we will break ground on a free health care facility that will interface with medical teams from the local hospital.”
Along with Esmaili, Adrian Wilson, who owns High Point Shoes at the Waterfront, donated over 2,500 pairs of shoes. He will appear at the pop-up from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Friday, January 20 to sign free autographs with every purchase, which are tax deductible.
