Shoes for the Needy

Item # 33369

Can you believe that just $1 will fund a sturdy pair of shoes for someone in need?

From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, and here in the United States too, many people -- especially children -- make do without shoes. For people who survive by picking through landfills or who need to walk long distances to fetch cooking water for their families, shoes can make the difference between life and death.

For the homeless families hit hard by the economic downturn or victims of natural disasters like floods or hurricanes, new shoes help make difficult conditions more bearable.

And for children living in orphanages worldwide, a pair of shoes can be cherished more than something to eat or even a new toy. More than 300 million children world-wide have never owned one pair of shoes -- but you can help us change that number.

$20.00 funds 20 pairs of shoes for the needy worldwide -- that's only $1 per pair! Shoes are provided through Nashville-based Soles4Souls™, which facilitates the donations of both new and used shoes to the needy the world over.


The idea for Soles4Souls™ began in 2004 when the tsunami hit Southeast Asia. Founder Wayne Elsey engineered the donation of a quarter of a million shoes to victims in the devastated countries. A few months later when Hurricane Katrina hit, Soles4Souls™ began a U.S. distribution that sent over a million pairs of shoes down to the gulf coast communities impacted by the hurricane. Since then, Soles4Souls™ has distributed more than 18 million pairs of shoes in 130 countries.
