You are Outgoing....Social....Green....and you aren't Kermit the Frog
[Even in this virtual world and virtual volunteering opportunity, we would prefer to find someone in Central Indiana/Indianapolis...But you can convince us that doesn't matter...]
IndyRecycle.org is a BRAND NEW organization; so new, our website isn't up yet. We are 100% volunteer, "green" to our roots, and want to change the world (or at least, Central Indiana). And we need someone to help connect us to everyone in the city....
When you have crutches, whom do you give them to? How do you get them into the hands of folks that can't afford to buy them? When you have a good mattress that you are replacing, whom do you give it to? Your local mattress store will throw it away, while there are kids all over Indianapolis that sleep on the floor. When your kids outgrow a bike, do you know that there is a local nonprofit that helps kids earn their own bike? Wouldn't it be great if there were an app for that, where you could find a nonprofit that needs specific items to fulfill their mission? Well..... here it comes. IndyRecycle.
But we need someone special. Because "if we build it...", they may not come. We need someone to help spread the word. Contact green organizations. Contact recycling organizations. Contact social justice organizations. Build a Facebook page, tweet, post stories on instagram, be a social media maven. Be the FACE of IndyRecycle and whatever you (or you-and-your-friends) dream up, you can do. You've always wanted to make a difference in the world; here's your chance.

About Changing Footprints
9302 N. Meridian, Locations in Rushville, Indianapolis, Greenfield, And Greenwood, INDIANAPOLIS, IN 46268, US
Changing Footprints realizes the great need for shoes around the world as protection from diseases and a gateway to education. Because of that need we collect new and gently used shoes for distribution to homeless, disaster-stricken, or underprivileged people locally, nationally, and internationally regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnicity.
Changing Footprints collects used shoes from a variety of sources: collection bins at shoe stores and churches, shoe drives by schools, churches, civic and governmental agencies, and donations of customer returns by shoe companies. We sort, classify by type, and quality check, and then provide the right type of shoes at no charge to agencies, individuals, and organizations who put them on the feet of those in need. We are a 100% volunteer organization with no paid staff and provide 15,000 pair of shoes per year to those in need, locally, in the US, and to international destinations. This diverts shoes otherwise destined for landfills to a important cause, educates our youth that they can make a personal difference, helps those in need, as well as those that volunteer their time, effort, and ideas. We are a flat organization that supports any volunteer with an idea they would like to try - in the words of our youth, "it's all good".
