At Cat Footwear, we believe in building a better future in our community, and with the start of a new year, we want to bring you along with us. Which is why we are encouraging your workplace, community, office space to share with us how you are building towards a better future.

Back on October 6th, Cat Footwear hosted our first Build for Better, an event aimed to give back to the Chicago community and also celebrate our sponsorship of the IG Builder’s Challenge that kicked off that month.

We hosted the three co-founders of the IG Builder’s Challenge and invited the community to come out for free desk building workshops to the ReBuilding Exchange in Chicago, a non-profit that diverts building materials from landfills by repurposing and selling used goods.

By the end of the day, together we had built 12 handmade wooden desks with re-claimed wood that we donated to Designs 4 Dignity, which helped to transform nonprofit Enlace with new office space makeover.


We had an extra, handmade, reclaimed wooden desk made from the staff at Rebuilding Exchange and are now giving it away to a deserving office space or community that is helping to make a difference.

On Instagram using the hashtag #HowWeBuildforBetter, share your story or your workplace’s story on how the space you work or live in is making a difference to be entered for a chance to win the desk. Or you can also enter to win with just your name, email and your thoughts on how to make the world a better place.


At the end of February, we will be choosing a deserving winner.
