What They Are Saying . . .
"...Thank you, thank you, thank you! Ya'll will never know how much
these shoes meant.... When we opened the box she started crying and
asking if they were for her. For a child who never owned more than
1 pair of shoes in her life, it was like Christmas....
Once again I want to say thanks, you made my child's whole year..."
-BA, Daughter Age 5, Louisiana
"...I would like to applaud you for the service you offer.
It is indeed a nice feeling to know that I have at last found
(an organization) that caters to my needs! ...
Everything was perfect ... I would like you to know how much easier
you make (getting) shoes for an amputee..."
-JS, Age 39, Florida
"...it made me feel like a little kid that had just found a treasure box!

"...(since my accident three years ago) I have gone through 38 surgeries,
21 blood transfusions ... 50 leg casts, 11 leg braces and 30 pairs of shoes
...I didn't think that I would ever be able to wear really cool shoes...
because my Mom really can't afford such expensive shoes. I appreciate
everything that you have done, and hopefully one day I can repay you
for your kindness ... thanks once again for making me
feel like I am still in style with my friends..."
-KM, Age 17, Florida

the shoes were discovered I tried them on at once.
They fit perfectly. ... Thanks again. ..."
-LC, Age 9, Illinois

"It was a surprise ... to get so many pairs of shoes right around the holidays.
It is hard to find just the right dress shoes, and in style too.
She really liked (them). They are expensive and hard for us to buy two pairs ...
I cannot say enough good things about NATIONAL ODD SHOE EXCHANGE to people I meet.
You bring a smile to her face and that means a great deal to us. ...
She really loves her shoes."
