Helping the future of our communities put their best feet forward, one pair of shoes at a time.

Every day, thousands of children around Alabama and Tennessee face poverty and the result is a lack of appropriate, safe shoes. Research shows that the wrong pair of shoes has measurable detrimental effects around behavior, learning, and confidence. Kicks For Kids exists to raise awareness of this problem and offer real, impactful solutions to those most in need. Taking Listerhill’s philosophy of “people helping people” to a real, tangible extension, this special charity will enable a multitude of kids to run, play, and learn like kids should.

What can one simple pair of new shoes do? We hope to...

Increase Attendance

Wearing the right shoes can spark the motivation needed to take on another day of class. We're here to provide that push.

Let's Break It Down
To better understand our new initiative and its moving pieces, we're breaking down the different components behind it.

Who?

We pick schools in Alabama and Tennessee that need new shoes the most. Providing shoes also ranges from giving to one grade to giving to the whole school.

What?

Students are given their pair from a variety of different name-brand athletic shoes.

When?

We focus on providing new shoes during the school year when kids need them most. We work with schools to settle on a date that works best for everyone.

Why?

Shoes are expensive, and kids outgrow them quickly. Because of this, shoes are often the most visible sign of poverty. Unfortunately, this creates a disparity among kids which can be divisive, embarrassing, and a pretext for bullying. By providing a child with a new pair of athletic shoes, we increase their self-esteem, encourage school participation, reduce prejudice, and give them an opportunity to reach their highest potential.

The Process
After coordinating with the schools, we have a simple process to bring brand new kicks to the kids.

1. Before we visit each chosen school, we'll collect each child's feet measurements so that they all have that "Cinderella's slipper" moment they deserve with their new shoes.

2. We bring the shoes straight to the schools so that all the kids need to do is bring their best dance moves.

3. Based on the measurements taken prior to our visit, we give each child the right pair of shoes they've been waiting for.

4. Whether it be during or after our visit, every kid will have an opportunity to strut their new shoes the day we bring them. And what happens if they don't fit? It's nothing to sweat! We'll make sure a new pair is sent within a week.

5. We highly encourage a dance party because there really is no better way to break in a pair of shoes.

How can you help?

Our mission would not be possible without you. Your contribution will fund more than a pair of shoes. You will help a child with their confidence, exercise, and learning. If you want to help this initiative, we urge you to donate.

Shoes that Fit

Getting the right pair of shoes to every child in our participating schools is no easy task. That's why we are partnered with Shoes That Fit which was founded in 1992 to make a difference in the lives of kids in need. They have provided over 2 million pairs of brand new shoes to children all over the U.S. They provide the shoes and we distribute them within our community.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When does it make sense to refinance a mortgage?

    Refinancing your home loan can be a great option to secure a better loan for your current circumstances and future goals. It makes sense to refinance your mortgage if one of the benefits will be helpful for you:

    • Secure a lower interest rate
    • Reduce your mortgage term
    • Switch from an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed-rate mortgage or vice versa
    • Borrow against the equity in your home


    If doing any of the above would benefit you, refinancing might be the next best move.
