Meet Two Teenage Entrepreneurs

Say hello to two teenage brothers, Drew and Jamie Frank, from El Paso,Texas. I have been recently promoting them. They have been giving away designer sneakers and socks to thousands of less fortunate students in several cities around the world during the last few years. They are quite remarkable.

 

It all started with needy students near the Texas border in El Paso. Drew (16) and Jamie (15) Frank noticed a few years ago that too many teenagers had trouble walking to school because of holes in their shoes.


 

They decided to do something about it. They took their Bar Mitzvah gift money, $25,000, and bought sneakers and socks for hundreds of poverty-stricken kids in their hometown. When asked why they weren’t giving away the least expensive sneakers possible, the brothers said it was so important to present teenagers with something that would make them feel proud, confident, and motivated to achieve success. That is so insightful.

 


Drew and Jamie also founded a charity called the “Kickpin Foundation” to expand their efforts worldwide. At the same time, they created a pop-up store in El Paso so young people can come by to see the collection of sneakers. They have given away 5,000 sneakers so far and this holiday season will be a record breaker.


My goal is to get them national recognition. We will score high.
