What started with donating 4 pairs of dirty sneakers turned into a mission! On April 1st, I launched GIVE SHOES: A Tennis Shoe Drive for Japan. Over the next 10 days, 15 local tennis facilities would join the effort by reaching out to their pros and members for help. I also organized a Goodwill Gathering, where we raised money for Soles4Souls and collected 289 shoes in one night alone! Because of the outpouring of support from the tennis community, as well as friends, family and kind strangers, I’m proud to say that we collected a total of 752 pairs of shoes!! Some famous faces who lent a hand, included actor CS Lee, Karin Anna Cheung, MMA fighter Yves Edwards, musician Bobby Choy, and even comedian-actor Will Ferrell donated shoes at his local tennis club! Thank you everyone for your contribution and for sharing the LOVE!!
