National Geographic Kids has been making valiant efforts towards collecting shoes from their readers, celebrities like Cameron Diaz and anyone that could contribute. They have successfully broke the Guinness World Record for the longest chain of shoes, in Washington D.C.. National Geographic readers donated over 10,000 pairs of shoes which made over two miles of donations set up from heel to toe. All the shoes will be given to Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program. This program recycles sneakers into material that will help build surfaces for basketball courts, soccerfields, and playgrounds. National Geographic is promoting generosity and recycling!
