Soles4Souls A Shoe Charity

My girls belong to this fabulous group Becoming Girls. They organized this really neat service project.They hosted a shoe drive. Thursday each team of girls covered a certain area of west side Manhattan were they handed out flyers to people to collect slightly used shoes. The flyer asked them to have the shoes on the front porch by Saturday the 4th. We spent Saturday collecting over 200 pairs of shoes for people in Japan.  I am so proud of all of them. 







Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. The charity distributes these shoes to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away nearly 12 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes (currently donating one pair every 7 seconds.) If you are interested in making a difference in some way check out there website. There is many ways to help contribute to those in need.
