Big Shoes is not just a story of death and loss, it is about prevailing and finding true happiness, not in spite of what happens to us but because of what happens to us.

All profits from the sale of Big Shoes benefit The DON'T WAIT Project®.

               our story



The DON'T WAIT Project® is a non-profit corporation committed to raising community awareness about how positive life choices can impact the health and welfare of individuals, organizations and communities.​ The DWP® is constantly striving to bring awareness to various needs, interests and programs both locally and throughout the world. While we work to be a voice for awareness campaigns already in place, such as organ donation and anti bullying, we have also developed a few campaigns and programs of our own. Take a look at our use of interviews, videos and other media to encourage our visitors and supporters to live a DON'T WAIT® kind of life.​ Some are stories from interviews we've conducted, others are links to stories we've found and want to share. Sharing negative media isn't in our job description! We regularly post new stories and are always looking for more. What's your DON'T WAIT® story?

partnering with

j.k. livin Foundation students DON'T WAIT® to unmake a bully

In effort to continue sharing the DON'T WAIT® to UnMake a Bully program, we set out to gather students outside a classroom setting and asked them to volunteer two afternoons and a Saturday to tell their bullying stories. For this effort, we partnered with Matthew McConaughey's 
livin Foundation, working with students of the Foundation's Animo Inglewood Charter High School in Inglewood, CA. 
"DON'T WAIT® to UnMake a Bully is a great fit for our program because the project really layers on top of the work we're already doing by empowering our students to advocate for wellness in their school and communities," says j.k. livin Foundation Operations Director Tobin Paap.
