Thank you!  Because of you, in just six short weeks we have surpassed the original goal of 10,000 pairs of shoes by Christmas!

Thank you so much for your support in helping to achieve this impressive feat. 10,000 pairs of shoes means that the lives of 10,000 people will be forever altered because of you.

In light of this we now have a new goal – 24,000 pairs of shoes by December 24. Ambitious yet very achievable!

See our full news and/or subsribe to our email updates here.

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Today we cracked the 2,500 milestone, thank you to all those that have helped us to reach this phenomenal amount so quickly. Please remember that while 10,000 by Christmas is the goal there is no ceiling on the number of shoes as the more shoes donated the more people we are able to help! So please keep them coming  :)

Very soon we will put out our first Shoe News, subscribe today by emailing

We are also quickly building our facebook community which is a great way to stay up to date with the progress of the shoe appeal. Join our community here.

The past week has seen an incredible amount of generosity as shoes have started to flow in and people from all over South Australia in addition to people Australia-wide contacting us about the shoe drive. So far more than 1,800 pairs of shoes have been donated.

On Sunday we were featured in the Ch7 6pm news which was a great honor and will no doubt boost donations.

Also, on Saturday night we were lucky enough to be interviewed by 5RPH radio. Listen to the interview now  :)

Thursday, October 6, 2011

As at 6pm tonight we have received more than 1,200 pairs of shoes. Thank you to everyone who has already dropped their shoes in, it has been incredible. And for all those still coming, I can’t wait!

For all future shoes we have one small note, where possible please tie the laces of shoes or place a rubber band around each pair of shoes to keep them safely together, thank you.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

An interview on 891 ABC radio this morning was a highlight and a great help in spreading the word of our shoe drive. Listen here.

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

It was a busy weekend at The Butterfly Movement with a news story appearing in The Advertiser. Click Advertiser news story to read the piece first hand.

This story has been a launch pad for a number of caring and passionate South Australians who have contacted us to donate their time to making the goal of 10,000 shoes by Christmas 2011 a reality. These wonderful people will also make it easier for more South Australians to donate their gently worn shoes. Thank you.

Also, as at 3/10/2011 we have 202 pairs of shoes already donated. Thank you.
