Fundraiser Ends Short of Anticipated Goal

When our ministry started the Soles For Souls fundraiser we were really hoping for a significant gain from this novel fundraising concept.  Though we were very touched by the significant outpour of support from those who donated shoes and monetary donations we didn’t come even remotely close to the goal we had set.  The payouts we received for the shoes did not add up to the value we were expecting, and though the shoes did indeed go to a good cause, the fundraising initiative did not even make enough to pay for its own promotional expenses.

We will continue to search for similar projects that might net a better return but intil we find one we will no longer be accepting shoe donations.
