Leap! Donate Your Used Dance Shoes #LeapForFootloose

I’ve partnered with Bloggin’ Mamas for this social good campaign. I may receive movie-related promotional items or experiences; but all opinions expressed are my own and no monetary compensation was received.

In support of the home entertainment release of the heartwarming animated family adventure, Leap!, Lionsgate has partnered with the non-profit organization, FOOTLOOSE, to gather donations of new and gently used dance shoes to help aspiring dancers in need. On November 16th, from 6p-8p PST, Lionsgate will be hosting an event in which they will be presenting FOOTLOOSE with the shoe donations. I wanted to help support this social good project, by encouraging donations from my readers. If you have new or gently used dance shoes you are willing to donate, you’ll find the address to send them to below. You can also follow along the donation event on social media via #LeapMovie and #LeapForFootloose

This company definitely needs our donations, as of today they have not received any donations yet. Please consider donating!

Donations to FOOTLOOSE can be sent prior to November 16 to the address below:

About Leap!

Featuring all-star voice talent led by Elle Fanning (Maleficent), alongside Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and Maddie Ziegler (The Book of Henry), with Mel Brooks (Spaceballs), featuring Carly Rae Jepsen (singer-songwriter of the hit song “Call Me Maybe”) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”), Leap! is a colorful and imaginative story about an orphan girl who is determined to follow her dream of becoming a ballerina. Filled with irresistible original music, Leap! features the hit track “Cut to the Feeling.”

Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.

Leap! will be available on Digital November 7 and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand November 21.

    This a great way to give back! We donate our son’s running flats each year back to the team to save money for runner’s who can’t afford new ones.

    What a great idea! We probably have at least 6-8 pairs of shoes others can use from walking shoes, sports shoes and dress shoes. We’ve had tough times in the past and appreciated receiving from others.

    I’ve never heard of FOOTLOOSE, except the movie, and I don’t have any dance shoes, old or new. I would look for shoes except that you had a Nov. 16th deadline and it’s now the 20th. Do you still need shoes?

  4. Amber Ludwig says:

    Oh I just adore this!! Imagine how much talent is never seen due to lack of funding and ability to obtain necessary gear!! This could open doors for so many dancers!!

  5. So many could benefit from this, and it is so simple. I would imagine as quickly as kids outgrow dance shoes this would be very successful.
