Giving Back With Soles4Souls
How many times have you been emotionally affected by a tragedy, but felt helpless to do anything? For the vast majority of us, it's fair to say that we would like to help, but the the commitments of life too often get in the way. In 2004, when Wayne Elsey witnessed footage of the South Asian tsunami and the devastation it created, he knew something had to be done.
From this tragedy, Soles4Souls was born. Wayne used his contacts in the footwear industry to make a call for donations of shoes, and was shocked at the result. Since 2005, over 17 million pairs of shoes have been distributed in over 127 countries.
Soles4Souls accepts donations of new and used footwear from shoe manufacturers and individuals alike. SOLE is proud to be partnered with this organization, donating new items, as well as gently-used product that has been returned under our 90-day satisfaction guarantee.
