NE-YO & The Compound Foundation Launch #WalkInOurShoes for National Foster Care Month


By Jack Barnes

The Compound Foundation would like to announce its partnership with online retailer StockX, to host an online charity sneaker auction for the “Walk In Our Shoes” campaign. Funds raised will benefit National Foster Care Month (May) and singer, songwriter, and actor NE-YO’s foundation. 

Starting on Tuesday, May 10, through Friday, May 20, StockX users will be able to bid on more than 20 sneakers owned by NE-YO. Funds from the campaign will support the Compound Foundation’s Music Academy Boot Camp and annual Giving Tour. The Music Academy Boot Camp has industry leaders work with students to teach and explore various career options within the field of music entertainment. At the end of the weekend, participants have the chance to compete for a $5,000 scholarship. The annual Giving Tour in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGC) brings holiday cheer / distributes gifts to 2,000 children ages 3-18 living in foster care, group homes and members of BGC. Each year the Tour visits multiple cities selected based on the size of the foster care population.
