OAKVILLE, ON, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - BioPed Franchising Inc., the Canadian leader of Pedorthic services, is today announcing the creation of the goodytwoshoes Foundation - dedicated to providing footwear to Canadian children and adults in need.
"Like most of the clothing in our closet, we don't often think about anything as simple as having a comfortable pair of shoes on our feet. Many Canadians - adults and children, either go without decent shoes or have none at all", says Robin Schleien, President & CEO of BioPed Franchising Inc.
goodytwoshoes aims to give the gift of comfort, activity and better foot health to thousands of Canadians. Working with local shelters in British Colombia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Ontario, consumers are invited to drop off their gently worn shoes at any of the more than 60 BioPed clinics across Canada. As an additional incentive and thank-you for each contribution, BioPed is offering a 10% discount on new, in stock footwear.
"The many shelters across the country who make such great efforts to assist are often underfunded and struggle to help the many in need", continued Mr. Schleien. "Through our partnership with dozens of shelters, our clinics will deliver footwear commencing in February, 2010 with plans to aggressively promote and expand the program throughout 2010."
More information about the goodytwoshoes foundation and BioPed products and services can be found on the web at www.bioped.com.
