#Newstead Harriers, a running club in the Launceston area, will start collecting shoes soon. The best contact for them is [http://www.coolrunning.com.au/runningguide/wiki/index.php/TAS_Clubs#Newstead_Harrier_Club via the details on the CoolRunning Clubs page].

==Other Places eg start your own collection==

We are keen for people to collect shoes in other places, and we will then list you (above) on this page. The Steps are:
+
#Start by collecting your own shoes and all your friends and family and your work mates and your local running groups.
+
#We don't have any money nor infrastructure so we would just ask that collect as many pairs as you can store, and when you have too many, [http://www.coolrunning.com.au/runningguide/wiki/index.php/Contact_CoolRunning contact us] or work out how to transport them to Sydney (we will pickup from within Sydney) or maybe you can find someone to "sponsor" the cost.
+
#Then post us what you have collected. Yes, that might cost some money - unless you can pass them on to someone to bring to Sydney by hand - we can arrange to pick up. Or if you can find someone to pay for the postage to Sydney (might be easier, but maybe not).
+
#We have secured an outlet that can take as many shoes as we can muster, so they will all get distributed to needy people in the Asia-Pacific area.
+
#Please [http://www.coolrunning.com.au/runningguide/wiki/index.php/Contact_CoolRunning contact us] and we can add your contact details to this page if you are keen to help.
+
 
+
==If all else fails ....==
+
 
+
Send them to us by post (sorry you'll have to cover this cost):
+
*Under 20 pairs - please post to GPO Box 2473, Sydney, NSW 2001 - cost is about $5 per pair but can send a few pairs for under $10.
+
*For more than 20 pairs, [[Contact CoolRunning | contact us]] for an alternate address.
