Donate your new or gently used shoes to help YWCA Greater Austin raise awareness about mental health and #StompOutTheStigma. 1 in 5 Americans struggle with a mental health issue, but nearly two-thirds of them do not seek help. Stigma results in fear, mistrust, and violence against people living with mental health issues; abandonment by family and friends; inadequate insurance coverage; and discrimination and prejudice. We can help by speaking out against stereotypes and informing others about the truth.

The YWCA Greater Austin will be working with Funds2Orgs to promote #StompOutTheStigma. Funds2Orgs delivers the donated shoes to places like Haiti, Uganda, and India to help impoverished people there set up micro-enterprises in which they will sell these shoes, develop a small business, and work their way to self-sufficiency.

Drop off your shoes at YWCA Greater Austin, 2015 S I-35 #110, Austin, TX, 78741.
