San Diego, CA, July 25, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Barefoot Kids Foundation and Chilio's Restaurant will hold a fundraiser dinner on Thursday, July 29th, 2010 from 4 to 10:30pm at eight (8) locations in Mira/Mesa/Sorrento Valley, Clairemont Town Square, Santee, Sports Arena, Mission Valley, Vista & Oceanside in San Diego County to benefit local Kids in Need.
Chili's Restaurants will donate 15% of your dinner bill to the Barefoot Kids Foundation. Enjoy the food and help generate donations for a good cause. Go to www.barefootkids.org/events to print the donation coupon that is required.
Barefoot Kids Foundation and various childcare organizations have teamed-up to provide $25. Payless Footwear Shopping Cards to local Kids in Need.
This Non-Profit organization exclusively provides new footwear to Kids in Need through their National Distribution Network currently in 36 cities throughout the USA. Childcare organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Salvation Army and Court Appointed Special Advocates provide Payless ShoeSource shopping cards to underprivileged Kids.
The National Center for Children in Poverty reports that 19% or 14 Million of our children live below the poverty level. Footwear is often not on the list after the bills, food & medical care are paid. Many of America’s Kids are in desperate need of new footwear.
Everyone can relate to the pride you get when you buy new footwear. Remember those early years when you were fitted for new shoes and sneakers, it was a great moment. You couldn’t wait to show them off. Share this thrill with a San Diego County Kid in Need.
More Kids will participate in physical activity, and be healthier when wearing proper fitting footwear. They need to feel comfortable and need to fit in with their peers. The distraction of foot pain during class may affect the Kids ability to focus on learning. Studies published in Medical Journals conclude that proper footwear can improve your health. Kids in San Diego need your help.
