In days, Avaaz staff and volunteers will construct a massive monument to our kids by laying 7000 pairs of children's shoes on the Capitol lawn to represent every single child we've lost since the Newtown shooting.

But we need all the shoes by Sunday March 11!

If you can donate shoes, scroll down for where to drop them off in DC -- and be sure to fill out the form to the right to let Avaaz staff know you can help!
