Christopher Rustage

Hello to all.

Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Chris Rustage, a semi retired businessman, now on a charity mission.(and please meet the well known Sally the Dog!)

Shoecember Ⓡ was conceived by me and, like most people, I have donated to various charities over the years. Recently, I decided to use my marketing skills to aid a local Children's Cancer Research Charity - KidsCan.....and so I present SHOECEMBER Ⓡ.

Back in the 80's and 90's, I had a promotional company that existed just to support various local charities. But these days, I only buy a poppy, put a couple of quid (DOLLARS) in the collection tins etc.

Life has been very kind to me, so once again, my thoughts turned to how could I become more involved and actually help. I have an eclectic collection of shoes and, as I am somewhat of an extrovert, I often wear odd's a fun thing to do! So, I thought, what if I could get people to wear odd shoes? - the kids could wear them to school, people could wear them to work and everyone involved would have some fun whilst helping charity - and the idea of Shoecember was born.
