#MillionsMissing now has an address where you can send your shoes!

We are asking patients who are unable to make it to the physical protest locations to please donate one pair of shoes to the address below and we will display them in their honor at the Washington, DC protest. You can send a pair of old shoes or if it’s difficult to get to the post office, order shoes on Amazon or Ebay and have them shipped directly to us.

Try to send a pair of shoes that represents you – perhaps your personality, fashion style, age, gender, or careers and hobbies that you may not be able to participate in any longer. We welcome shoes from around the world. 

During the protest, we will post images of these shoes to #MEAction’s social media account using the #MillionsMissing hashtag, so patients can see that they are being represented during the demonstration.

Shoes cannot be returned. After the protest, we will either donate all shoes to a local charity or keep them for a future installation.

Address:

1) Fill out this form.

2) Then, mail your shoes to:

Paige Maxon

P.O. Box 26051

Winston Salem, NC, 27114

Whatever name you enter into the Google form linked above should appear somewhere in the package you send us so that we can match the data – either enclosed in a sheet of paper with the form, or if ordering directly from Ebay or Amazon, somewhere in the return address or order information.

Thank you for participating in the #MillionsMissing protest!  If you haven’t participated yet, think of what a huge, visual demonstration can do.  Together, we can ensure that we are all seen and heard this May!

  1. So, shall I send my Softball Spikes, Hiking Boots, Running Shoes, Ski Boots, Bowling Shoes, Roller Blades, Golf Shoes, Tennis Shoes, Slippers, Church Shoes, Fishing Boots or my Motorcycle Boots?
    Sad and tough choices! I hope all goes well.

  2. When is the deadline for posting from UK, please ? I hope I haven’t missed it – brilliant idea of MEAct, thank you so much for all you do.
