(WAFB) - The American Business Women’s Association La Capitale Chapter in Baton Rouge has launched their second annual Shoes for Success campaign to raise money for educational assistance and professional development for women in the Baton Rouge area, as well as to help start businesses in underdeveloped countries around the globe.

Now through May 15, the organization, along with Funds2Orgs, is collecting new and gently used shoes. Funds2Orgs helps non-profit organizations raise money for their various causes and is paying the La Capitale Chapter $0.40 per pound of shoes collected. Funds2Org then distributes the shoes to underdeveloped countries to help small business owners get started.
