Soles4Souls

Soles4Souls™ Inc (S4S) have a very simple mission which is to impact upon as many lives as possible with the gift of shoes. To date Soles4Souls™ Inc, a nonprofit group founded in December 2004 after a tsunami hit Southeast Asia, have distributed over one million pairs of new and gently-used footwear to those in need. The Nashville Company now partners with charities and governments around the world to continue the good work. Gap Inc.'s Piperlime is one such partner. Piperlime have held a celebrity shoe auction featuring glamorous footwear donated by celebrities including Jessica Simpson , Misha Barton and Sharon Stone. Last December, Soles4Souls Inc. signed an agreement with three baseball stars to help deliver free shoes to their home countries. Manny Mota, Raul Mondesi and Orlando Cabrera have teamed up with Soles4Souls to coordinate massive footwear drives in the Dominican Republic and Colombia. Each player will receive a container of shoes, an estimated 15,000 pairs and they will help distribute the footwear to thise most in need in local communities. Manny Mona will distribute his container of shoes in the El Tamarindo area of Santo Domingo. Raul Mondesi will help distribute the shoes in San Cristóbal, where he is currently a council member for the city of San Cristóbal, and Orlando Cabrera will help distribute the shoes in his hometown of Cartagena, Colombia. Soles4Souls are always looking for donations of shoes, or cash for freight, hosting a shoe drive, or even donating your time as a volunteer. Shoe companies, retailers, and individuals can donate footwear (both new and used). Soles4Souls is a 501(c)(3) recognized by the IRS; donating parties in the US are eligible for tax advantages.
