We believe that we should help families of all types, regardless if they are customers of ours or not. Our shoes can bring joy to those who put them on and feel unbelievable comfort, but this should not be where our quest to bring joy to families ends. We have taken serious and substantial steps from the beginning of the company to give back to local communities.
We work with organizations locally and nationwide to give back to the families in our community.
In December 2019, we donated approximately 200,000 pairs of shoes to Big Brothers Big Sisters, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Opportunity Village, Soles4Souls, The Shade Tree, Kyler Kicks, and Goodwill of Southern Nevada.
In March 2020, we partnered with the Food Bank of Rockies to donate $3 for every pair of shoes sold over a two-week span. Each dollar raised provided four meals for those facing hunger. With your help, we were able to provide 800 meals to families during the pandemic.
In June 2020, we donated 10% of purchases from 6/8/2020 - 6/12/2020 to the Conscious Kid Foundation, an organization that supports families and educators in taking action to disrupt racism, inequity and bias. Their Anti-Racist Children Books Education Fund puts children's books that support conversations on race, racism, and resistance into classrooms across the country.
In celebration of Black Business Month, we donated 5% of profits from 8/10/2020 - 8/14/2020 to Black Girl Ventures. This organization is dedicated to finding creative solutions to dissolve the race and gender gap in access to capital. Their mission is to provide Black/Brown woman-identifying founders with access to community, capital, and capacity building in order to meet business milestones that lead to economic advancement through entrepreneurship.
Everyone deserves to feel joy during the holidays, especially children on Christmas morning. We partnered with Marine Toys For Tots to bring joy to families in need. Our Black Friday sale encouraged customers to shop with a purpose.We donated 5% of each purchase to the TFT foundation to purchase gifts for kids. That’s a lot of excited smiles on Christmas morning!

Did you know that nearly 40,000 tons of unsold clothes, shoes and accessories are dumped in Chile’s Atacama Desert every year? There are better ways to dispose of inventory that don’t damage the environment. Last year, we partnered with Soles4Souls and donated 12,900 pairs of shoes from our leftover inventory to support the organization’s relief and micro-enterprise programs. Together, we were able to provide relief, create jobs and keep more than six tons of material out of landfills and dumping grounds!

We are proud to announce our largest donation of 2022 was our 5,000 Soles Giveaway. Joybees contributed to donating 5,000 pairs
of shoes across several non-profits nationwide. Through this process, we were able to get to know and connect with many amazing people and highlight all the good that their organizations are initiating. We are proud to give back to local and national organizations in hopes to make a positive impact on communities and bring more joy to the world.
