What is The Pink Slipper Project?

The Pink Slipper Project is an endeavor to warm the hearts and toes of women and children living in shelters for victims of domestic violence.  Not only will a pair of handmade slippers help keep them warm, but remind them that they are not alone and that someone cared enough to make something special just for them.  A simple kindness goes a long way in the healing process.

Since The Pink Slipper Project was founded in 2009 by Joyce Lucas,  thousands of pair of slippers have been donated to shelters around the country.  The Pink Slipper Project unites women all over the world for the good of other women and children.  The common thread is they all want to help make someone’s life a little better.

Please help us as we make a difference in the lives of a few of these women and children. The slippers can be knit, crocheted or sewn and they don’t need to be pink.  They do need to be handmade and warm.  If you would like more information about The Pink Slipper Project, please visit us on Facebook at

Child Safety

When donating items such as slippers, toys, a shelter, one of our concerns is the safety of children.

In the interest of child safety, please do not attach small items that can possibly be removed and become a potential choking hazard to items made for children under the age of 12. This includes, but is not limited to: buttons, bows, charms of any kind, zipper pulls, or metal jewelry or decorations.  Please make sure that any sort of decoration which is sewn onto an item you donate is securely sewn or otherwise attached.  This includes, but is not limited to, iron-on decorations of any sort.

Due to new and stringent rules from the CPSIA, we must be sure that all supplies used to make slippers for children under 12 fall within their guidelines.

Thank you for helping  keep children safe.
