Today’s social good post is sponsored by Leap! I’ve partnered with Bloggin’ Mamas to share this information so you can donate dance shoes to FootLoose. All opinions expressed are my own.
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 the donation event live on social media via #LeapMovie and #LeapForFootloose.
The girls have seen the LEAP! movie a few times now and love it. It has a great story line and teaches lessons all children need to learn – especially when it comes to following your dreams! Take the LEAP and send in your new or gently used dance shoes to give another children a chance to follow their dreams.
Donations to FOOTLOOSE can be sent prior to November 16 to the address below:

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, you can pre-order it now on Amazon (affiliate link). Any money made by me from Amazon should you decide to use my link for your purchase will be donated to the FootLoose foundation.
Feel free to share this social good campaign using #LeapMovie and #LeapForFootloose to encourage others to donate dance shoes to FootLoose too!
