I was looking for a charity to help Haiti and came across these guys. As I do with all charities I looked at their 990 long form from 2007. In it there is an extraordinary expense for $2,600,000+ (2.6 million dollars plus) for "Concert Expense"). The question is ... how can that be ? Wouldn't that money be better spent in Haiti ? And it brings into question the rest of their activities. That said, apparently they do collect a lot of used shoes. They must sell them to get the millions of dollars they have on their balance sheet. Something smells fishy here.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Can't verify that the shoes have been delivered to Haiti.
