Giants Launch Online 2017-18 Game-Worn Jersey Auction
Vancouver, B.C. - The Vancouver Giants in conjunction with Ruben's Shoes are providing fans with an opportunity to bid online for all 2017-18 game-worn Vancouver Giants jerseys.
Beginning at 10:00 AM today, fans can bid on all white and black jerseys worn by the Giants this season. The auction will expire at 3:00 PM on March 23rd and jerseys will then be distributed to the winning bidders once the season concludes.
Proceeds from this 2017-18 game-worn jersey auction will go towards Ruben's Shoes.
Per Ruben's Shoes website: At Ruben's Shoes we collect gently used shoes and give them to people in need. In countries like the Dominican Republic, without shoes kids can't go to school. We give a pair of shoes a second life which gives people in other countries a chance at a new beginning.
Imagine if a pair of your shoes could give a child an education.
Imagine how that education could change the future for that child.
Founder, Kelly Strongitharm, had the honour and privilege of meeting Ruben, the boy she had been sponsoring through World Vision for 7yrs, in December 2012.
Upon meeting Ruben and his family, Kelly felt an immediate connection. Seeing how radically different life in the Dominican is, Kelly felt compelled to do something to give back to the community that affected her life so profoundly and thus Ruben's Shoes was born.
To date Ruben's Shoes has successfully sent just under 60,000 pairs of shoes in 5 containers to Dominican Republic, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Zimbabwe with the next container heading to Nicaragua. As well as Ruben's Shoes built and runs a school in the Dominican Republic and created a sponsorship program helping to break the cycle of poverty through education creating more opportunities and a better future. Currently the school has just over 200 students.
