Are you looking for a way to help the struggling people of Haiti?
Here's a great opportunity to help by sending your gently worn running shoes to the people of Haiti who are in dire need of basics after the recent devastating earthquake.
Soles 4 Souls is seeking the donation of running shoes to send to Haiti.
From their web site:
"We need the 'gently worn' shoes taking up space in your closet. It is
estimated that Americans have 1.5 billion pairs of unworn shoes lying in their
closets. We can use each and every one of these pairs to make a tangible
difference in someone's life.
Round up shoes from your closets, bind each pair together with rubber bands
and drop them at one of our participating locations or send them to one of our
warehouse facilities. We will sort the shoes and categorize them based on
gender, size, and type. Then when one of our relief partners expresses a need
for the shoes, we will be able to fill that 'order' with your footwear!"
