Soles4Souls invites you to give thanks and give shoes with our fall shoe drive program, Thanks4Giving.

We need your congregation or organization to step up and help us harvest 250,000 pairs of shoes for those who go without. Americans have over 1.5 billion idle pairs of shoes in our closets, and it’s time to give back this Thanksgiving. This campaign is a simple, yet profound way of making a difference in the lives of others.
 
Since Soles4Souls started handing out free shoes (both brand new and gently worn), communities across the world have stepped up to help make an impact on the hearts and minds of people in need. The truth is, our charity can’t reach victims of natural disasters or those struggling to lift themselves out of extreme poverty without the assistance of caring individuals like you, and you have responded in amazing ways.

Please consider joining our call to raise a quarter million pairs of shoes as a simple message of love and solidarity to those who are living in poverty.  Thanks4Giving is a great opportunity for people to be thankful for their blessings by sharing the gift of shoes with those less fortunate.

For more information or to sign up your congregation to give the gift of shoes this Thanksgiving, visit the Thanks4Giving Website.  To learn more about Soles4Souls and its upcoming charitable events, visit www.giveshoes.org or call 866-521-7463.

Soles4Souls Announces 2nd Annual Thanks4giving Program

Written by Rhonda on September 1, 2010 – 9:31 am -

Soles4Souls, the shoe charity, needs help from your congregation to support our upcoming Thanks4Giving program.

This unique event will touch the lives of thousands of individuals during the Fall season,  when most of us are enjoying the warmth and safety of our homes,  families and friendships. Of course, there are millions of people without any of these, and during the upcoming holidays we are working to provide much-needed relief in an otherwise bleak time. Ever since Soles4Souls started handing out free shoes (both brand new and gently worn), communities across the world have stepped up to help make an impact on the hearts and minds of people in need, whether they are around the corner or around the world.  The truth is, our charity can’t reach victims of natural disasters or those struggling to lift themselves out of extreme poverty without the assistance of caring individuals like you, and you have responded in amazing ways.

This Thanksgiving, we invite your congregation to step up and help us harvest 250,000 pairs of shoes for the poor. Americans have over 1.5 billion pairs of shoes in our closets, and it’s time we take the extra pairs and give them to people who will treasure them for years to come.

Please consider joining our call to raise 250,000 pairs of shoes as a simple message of love and solidarity to those who are without.  Thanks4Giving is a unique opportunity for people to be thankful for what they have by sharing the gift of shoes with those less fortunate.

For more information or to sign up your congregation to give the gift of shoes this Thanksgiving, visit the Thanks4Giving Website.  To learn more about Soles4Souls and its upcoming charitable events, visit www.giveshoes.org or call 866-521-7463.

Wishing you happiness and health,

Wayne Elsey,
Founder & CEO
