HERES HOW IT WORKS… of the funds raised, go directly to your organization. Raise money for your organization Provide relief for those in need around the world. 40% 60% of the funds go to Soles4Souls to help distribute shoes to people all over the world. and
WHY SHOES? 1.2 billion people live in extreme poverty. 400 million are children. Many have never owned a pair of shoes. We help children suffering from the terrible ramifications of walking without good shoes, or even barefoot. Including illness from soil parasites and the inability to attend school. The shoes your organization sponsor will help those in need walk towards a brighter future.
$1= 1 PAIR. $1= A LIFE CHANGED. Since 2006, Soles4Souls has distributed 21 million pairs of shoes all around the world. For every dollar raised, Soles4Souls is able to distribute 1 pair of shoes.
SOME OF OUR FAVORITE FEET! Fritz is 8 yrs old and lives in an orphanage in Haiti. He has 2 sisters and 1 brother who live at the orphanage as well. Before he was very neglected, but is now going to school and is well loved. His shoes ensure that he will be able to attend school. He told us at a distribution that he loves his shoes because they protect his feet! Maria is the youngest of 5 children who live in a very rural part of Wisconsin. She isnt old enough to realize what an exceptional treat a brand new pair of shoes are for her, but her mother is extremely thankful. Outfitting 5 growing children with shoes each year (sometimes more than once per year when growth spurts happen) is extremely overwhelming for Marias parents. Maria was excited to get her new shoes so that she could feel like she was old enough to go to school, too, and therefore feel special. Her mother added we all need to feel special once in awhile.
