The gift of shoes is a simple, yet profound way to benefit people in need while helping the environment at the same time.
Judy Bowles says that 'most of us are so blessed, we've got a pair or two of shoes just sitting there collecting dust'. Others in the world aren't as fortunate, especially if they have become the victim of a disaster.
Instead of dropping unwanted pairs in the trash, there is another option.
Your shoes can help protect your feet and Soles4souls has a simple concept: procure shoes and get them to those in need.
Bennett Kesler, a student at Deerfield Windsor Elementary thinks it'll be helpful to kids in other countries that don't have shoes.
Soles4Souls has received seventeen million slightly worn shoes have distributed them to people in 127 countries.
