Tony Spano deployed to the country of Timor Leste firstly back in 2006 and secondly in 2008 as part of the International Stabilisation Force.
As a rifleman on the ground tasked with security of the country's popluation and it's assets, you get a chance to get amongst the people and thier culture and experience first hand the hardships they had to face every day.
When Tony Joined up with Shoes For Planet Earth 2 years ago, A return trip to Timor was definately on the cards, and what better way than to give something we all take for granted? A comfy pair of shoes.
With headquarters in Sydney, Australia, Shoes for Planet Earth is a non-profit organisation started in 2009 by people who love to run and want to give something back. Working together with local and international communities and companies we provide recycled running shoes to those in need around the world.
