In fact, each and every day children around the world are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable because of a lack of shoes, but a donated pair of shoes can help right this wrong.
Daphne, AL (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
“Each pair of shoes donated, whether they are new or used, can go a long way in helping a person in need who does not have the means to purchase their own,” said Ginny. “In fact, each and every day children around the world are prevented from attending school and adults are unable to work as walking becomes unbearable because of a lack of shoes, but a donated pair of shoes can help right this wrong.”
Ginny and Soles4Souls believe everyone around the globe deserves a good pair of shoes. To fulfill its mission of wearing out poverty, to date, Soles4Souls has collected and distributed more than 26 million pairs of shoes to those in need in 127 countries around the world and all 50 states in the U.S.
“I fully champion the Soles4Souls philosophy that ‘a new pair of shoes provides relief today so thousands can succeed tomorrow,’” said Ginny. “I am strongly urging members of the community to drop by my drop-off location and donate any unwanted new or used pair of shoes to give a person in need the chance for a better tomorrow.”

Soles4Souls, a not-for-profit global social enterprise dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty, was founded as a disaster relief organization after philanthropists and shoe executives provided footwear to those most impacted by the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributes those shoes and clothes via direct donations to people in need.
