LOST & FOUND
When the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lost & Found” drops on November 19, it’s a very special moment for us as AFEW as well, because it takes us back to our beginnings.
Back then, we were on the road at countless flea markets and scoured dozens of old sports stores for sneaker treasures to sell out of our dad’s garage afterward. Michael Jordan served us then as now, with his inhuman work ethic as a role model, and drove us every day to become better.
Because we believe that everyone can be a role model, we are planning something special for the in-store release of the Air Jordan 1 High OG “Lost & Found” and want to reward people with social commitment. Therefore, together with the NGO Plan International Germany, we have combined each pair with a sponsorship, for which we are now looking for suitable godmothers and godfathers. We are looking for people who, in addition to their love of shoes, also have a heart for children and young people and want to be proactively socially engaged.
Together with PLAN INTERNATIONAL DEUTSCHLAND, an NGO that works for children and young people in more than 75 countries worldwide, we want to create something sustainable for the “Lost & Found” release. Already more than 380,000 active people participate in the form of sponsorship with Plan International in Germany alone and give children the opportunity for a self-determined life. The main areas of activity are in more than 75 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
PROCEDURE / CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
To apply for the shoe in combination with the sponsorship you must do the following:
- Write us an e-mail at: MENTOR@AFEW-STORE.COM & tell us why you would be a good sponsor. Please do not forget to include your shoe size and address.
- We will get back to you no later than November 17, 2022, to let you know if you have been selected for the mentorship program.
- The winners of the mentorships and the Jordan 1 High “Lost & Found” will be invited to Düsseldorf on November 19 to pay for the shoe and receive the folder of your mentor child personally.
IS THE SPONSORSHIP ASSOCIATED WITH COSTS FOR ME?
→ No, the financial part is taken over by AFEW for one year. After that, you are free to decide whether you want to continue the sponsorship.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO AS A SPONSOR?
→ We establish contact with Plan International Germany and your sponsored child. You then have the option of communicating directly with your sponsored child by e-mail using a Plan tool or by letter.
→ Plan International Germany informs you annually about the development of your sponsored child.
HOW LONG DOES THE SPONSORSHIP LAST?
→ There is no time limit. Of course, we want a long friendship to develop between you and the sponsored child. The first year of the sponsorship is financed by us and of course, we would be infinitely happy if you continue the sponsorship after the year. The long-term sponsorship enables a particularly sustainable improvement of the children’s living conditions and costs just 28 Euros per month.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER ONE YEAR?
→ We would be happy to sit down with all sponsors and the Plan International Germany team at the end of the year to see how the respective sponsorships have developed. Sponsors who have established contact with their sponsored child should of course be honored.
CAN I BUY THE “LOST & FOUND” WITHOUT A SPONSORSHIP?
→ Yes, you can also sign up for the ONLINE RAFFLE as normal.
