Soles4Souls is now one of the fastest-growing nonprofits in America. It has distributed nearly 12 million pairs of shoes in more than 125 countries across the globe—and more than half end up on the feet of needy Americans. In the time it takes you to read this sentence—about seven seconds—they'll give away another pair of shoes.
Despite the great strides Soles4Souls has made, the need for shoes worldwide is enormous. Fortunately, it's easy for you to help their cause. Here's how:
You can donate new and used shoes to a participating donor center, ask your local shoe store to host a shoe drive, or organize one yourself through your community.You can donate money directly to Soles4Souls. Every $1 you give provides one pair of shoes to someone who needs them. That means $20 buys 20 pairs of shoes.A donation of $10 or more allows you to make your gift in honor of a loved one—or as a meaningful holiday, birthday, graduation or wedding gift. If you give $45, you can even travel with Soles4Souls to distribute shoes. It feels good to dig deep, knowing your gift will help get someone back on their feet.
