Going the Extra Step for Foster Kids

We’ve partnered with Ticket to Dream to help foster kids feel a little famous.


Everyone deserves to experience the confidence that comes from a new pair of shoes, because everyone deserves to feel a little famous. Thanks to our new partnership with Ticket to Dream, we are helping foster kids feel famous, too.


Ticket to Dream is dedicated to providing hope and opportunity for foster kids across the nation, so they can just be kids. Together with businesses and community members Ticket to Dream has provided over 2 million foster children with everyday essentials like properly fitting shoes, clothing, school supplies, holiday gifts, laptops, even access to extracurriculars and aging out of care support to reduce homelessness. Ticket to Dream partners with over 200 non-profit foster care partners, reaching over 200,000 foster children across all 50 states, to help foster kids quickly and efficiently in our communities.


Thanks to your generosity, Famous Footwear has donated over $4 million to Ticket to Dream to make a difference in so many foster kids’ lives.

Preparing for an Epic Comeback


We’re proud to share that with your help and through our partnership with Ticket to Dream, we have been able to provide over $1.9 million worth of donations and support including shoes, socks, backpacks, laptops, masks, school supplies, even help in school. 3 cities also hosted over 150 foster youth with shopping sprees to help foster kids prepare for the epic school year ahead. Thanks to you, we’ve created joy for over 67,000 foster kids this school year- that’s over 3,200 school buses filled with children! We’re excited for these foster kids to confidently head back to school and wish them an epic school year.


Thanks for your generosity!
