Reagan and Charlotte give back

Nordstrom employees and customers have been giving shoes for over 10 years.

But it’s not just the employees who get involved — 11 year-old Reagan Wong heard about it from her mom, Cindy, an Asst. Mngr. at Nordstrom, and wanted to do her part to help.

Reagan makes lanyards during her spare time, in quiet moments at recess, while she watches tv, and at the kitchen table. She created 20 lanyards and sold them at $10 each. Her friend Charlotte joined in with selling her handmade candles (which she had already been selling to help out in Ukraine and Maui). Together, the girls raised $250 and donated it all to Shoes That Fit.    

Growing up Reagan heard stories from her dad about his childhood, when his family couldn’t afford new shoes and he often wore shoes that were too small. 

Reagan shared another reason she gives: “When you have a brand new pair of shoes you have more confidence!”

Tacey Powers, EVP at Nordstrom, and also a board member at Shoes That Fit, asked Reagan to make another 20 lanyards for her fellow board members. Reagan donated that money to Operation Warm and Toys for Tots.

“Our world will be in good hands with girls like you!” – note from Tacey to Reagan and Charlotte

Reagan and Charlotte were able to give 25 pairs of new shoes for Bahia Vista School in San Rafael. Next year they hope they can raise even more!

Thanks for inspiring us and giving back, Reagan and Charlotte!
