Compassion. Inspiration. Impact. Two Ten Footwear Foundation â€¢ 2012 Annual Report
Uniting and engaging the footwear community since 1939 For more than 70 years, whenever shoepeople have needed a hand, Two Ten Footwear Foundation has been there. Our legacy of “shoepeople helping shoepeople” drives everything we do today. It propels our compassion for those who need financial and emotional support. It inspires us to engage and enrich a vibrant footwear community. And it is the driving force behind the measurable impact we have throughout our industry. But none of it would be possible without the generosity of the thousands of shoepeople and footwear companies that have made Two Ten their charity of choice. They truly make Two Ten possible.
There’s a growing need for the support we provide: In just three years, our number 1972 Annual Gala Dinner
of intake calls from footwear industry professionals seeking financial assistance has more than doubled.
2012 Annual Gala Dinner
A letter from Board Chairman, Jim Salzano Dear Two Ten Family: I have the great privilege and honor to Chair the Two Ten Board of Directors and to work with the Two Ten team as it helps those who need a hand up. I’m talking about the people from the footwear industry—our industry— who have suffered from Superstorm Sandy. Or lost a loved one and can’t see the way forward right now. Or have a son or daughter who has the appetite to learn but faces financial constraints that could close the door on a higher education. The variations on this theme of hard luck or misfortune are numerous. And that’s where we come in. This industry has drawn people together who share a common set of values and an extraordinary sense of humanity. We make it our business to care for each other unconditionally, twenty four hours a day seven days a week—all the time. Two Ten is supported by thousands of people who are ready to go beyond their everyday responsibilities—personal or professional—to help people they may never meet. That’s why our founders established Two Ten: to provide a place and a means to care for people in this industry. When the original founders would gather to meet, they would pass a hat at the end of the meeting and leave it in the lap of the person who needed the hand up. We still carry on that tradition, though on a bigger scale with greater impact. But with the same humility and genuine sense of caring. I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. If you described what we do to someone, it wouldn’t sound like an industry. It sounds more like a family. We are on a mission today to carry out a vision that has stood the test of time and demonstrated its sustainability for almost 75 years. Shoepeople helping shoepeople. And as we take it forward, we’re committed to expanding its reach, to provide more financial relief, more educational opportunities, to build more community. To do that, we will need help in multiple currencies. Of course, the dollars are important, but so is your time. Please join me and so many industry supporters and volunteers. Contribute some of your time or dollars or both. When you do you will not only help change the lives of individuals who need a hand up, you’ll also expand the capacity of Two Ten to help shoe people helping shoe people. Thank you. Sincerely,
Jim Salzano President, Clarks Americas Board Chair, Two Ten Footwear Foundation 2
A letter from Two Ten’s President, Neal Newman Dear Friends and Supporters The Two Ten Footwear Foundation is dedicated to one clear goal – to help footwear workers and their families lead happy and productive lives. For 74 years. Through good times and bad. From coast to coast. During hurricanes, tornados and floods. Two Ten has been making a real difference in shoepeople’s lives, delivering emergency financial assistance and critical support services to thousands of men, women and children in our footwear community – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We don’t do this alone. Your tireless support was instrumental to these efforts. 100% of the funds raised from the footwear industry last year were used to prevent nearly 1,000 evictions. Your generosity went directly to 500 footwear families unable to keep the heat and lights on in their homes. With your financial support, we helped hundreds of footwear cancer survivors stay on the job during treatment or recovery. Last year was unprecedented. Two Ten helped over 2,000 shoepeople – a 42% increase from just 2010. We delivered 417 college scholarships and doubled the awards to $2,500. We helped hundreds of shoepeople obtain confidential counseling or essential social services from local organizations. We connected over 1,000 footwear professionals in our Women in Footwear Industry (WIFI), Young Professionals (YP) and at our HR Leadership Conference. Your compassion made all this possible. And we’re very happy to report that even during a difficult economic climate and two hurricanes that tested us all, the finances and operations of the Two Ten Footwear Foundation remained in excellent health. On behalf of our footwear community, I’d like to simply say – thank you. Your continued support is more important than ever before and deeply appreciated. Sincerely

Our mission: to help people in the footwear industry With a $34 million endowment dedicated to supporting people throughout the footwear industry in perpetuity, Two Ten Footwear Foundation is unique among private foundations in the country. As an operating foundation, we utilize 100% of the annual funds we raise from industry to provide social services or run our own community-enhancing programs, as opposed to distributing grants. As a result, all of our activities are laser focused. We pride ourselves on being responsible stewards of our donors’ money—something that is supported by Guide Star Exchange and other metrics. We benefit from continual guidance from a 40-member industry-leading board of directors, an honorary board led by Tim O’Donovan, Steve Nichols and Dick Rubin that helps us deepen the impact of Two Ten, and from more than 70 industry icons and former board members who are helping us prepare for our 75th anniversary in 2014.
Caribbean and up the east coast of the United States in late October of 2012. The storm left dozens dead, thousands homeless and millions without power. Total damage is expected to be in the billions of dollars. Two Ten received 622 Hurricane Sandy emergency calls in just 10 weeks—a significant 36% increase in typical call volume for a 10week period. Fully 98% of all Sandy emergency callers received a response from Two Ten within 48 hours, which meets our response time goal. To date, Two Ten has provided $291,100 in emergency assistance to 463 footwear families during the Sandy crisis, representing 16% of our total annual relief spend. Families have used Two Ten assistance to purchase generators and pay for mold abatement, to replace lost clothing and household basics like pots and pans, and to pay for temporary shelter during the displacement caused by Sandy.
2012 Hurricane Sandy
Social Services 2012 was a year of great accomplishments and challenges for the Social Services team. We experienced a record-breaking 29% growth in intake calls for emergency assistance and a 35% increase over 2011 in the number of people who received financial assistance. In response, Two Ten began 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week phone coverage to meet the increased call volume.
What we do An additional $534,379 was allocated to emergency relief spending this year, totalling $1,776,816 Driven by a compassion that extends back to the days of the Great Depression, we help footwear workers

Why Steve & Wendy Madden Support Two Ten How long has Steve Madden Ltd. been involved with Two Ten?
What are the most important reasons behind your support for Two Ten?
Steve & Wendy: Since 1993
Steve: I think it’s important to give back to the industry that supports your business. It sets an example to my competitors and Two Ten truly helps people who need help.
How did your involvement with Two Ten start?
Wendy: I think this all stems from “shoepeople helping shoepeople. ” There is a commonality in our

Wendy: The company’s involvement really started in 1998 with recruitment and outplacement services.
events, like WIFI and HR Leadership Committee where best practices and challenges are shared and solutions are discussed and adopted. Are you aware of any Steve Madden employees who have benefitted from Two Ten? Steve & Wendy: Yes, quite a few of our associates were assisted with rent payments when times were tough and they were close to eviction. Two Ten helped Steve Madden associates with Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy and several of our associates or their families were assisted with the scholarship program. Sometimes associates are more comfortable approaching an anonymous foundation for help instead of talking to their employer. Your 2012 gift to Two Ten was very generous. What do you hope it will allow Two Ten to do? Steve: I hope our donation inspires other shoepeople to step up and donate their money or time to allow Two Ten to continue to provide outstanding services to the footwear community. Wendy: To continue to educate shoepeople about all the resources Two Ten has to offer, continue to inspire people to stay and flourish in our industry, and most importantly financially help our community. What do you think people should know about Two Ten that they might not know? Wendy: Two Ten is able to turn on a dime when they receive a call for help. Their unbelievably quick response is amazing and extremely supportive. Once, we had a store manager pass away suddenly and his family did not have the resources to bury him. Two Ten sent a $3,000 check to the funeral home within 24 hours. They don’t just write checks –they teach people practical skills to help them overcome obstacles. Is there anything else you’d like to say about Two Ten and its work?

Steve: Over the years Two Ten Footwear Foundation has evolved tremendously and continues to stay
ahead of the curve by anticipating the needs of the footwear community. Wendy: They’ve implemented Ars Sutoria classes to teach design, they offer a mentoring program through WIFI to develop women in the footwear industry, and they are always listening to the community and anticipating the next need.
Financial overview Over the last year, we’ve distributed more than $2.5 million in financial assistance and scholarships. We provide vital support that meets a rapidly growing need: In just three years, the number of calls we receive from footwear industry workers seeking financial assistance has more than doubled.
