I have travelled with S4S multiple times, to very remote areas. They do amazing work, both at the level of the individual (a young orphan or school child getting new durable shoes); and programmatically; by launching micro-enterprises, and being able to deliver sturdy shoes for a fraction of the price of other groups. They really care; it is a pleasure to support them. - Tim
Soles4Souls has been a reliable donations partner for our company for years. They have the full package: a powerful mission and the back-end support to make the donation process easy and streamlined. We could not be happier with our partnership with Soles4Souls!
I've been involved with Soles4Souls since 2014 and since that time I've collected 1134 pairs of gently worn shoes. It's such an easy concept to get your arms and heart around.....everyone has a pair of shoes or two that can be donated and there are so many children in this world that desperately need a pair of shoes in order to attend school and stave off a bad infection that potentially could kill them. I also love the concept of sustainability and the work that Soles4Souls does with the individuals who set up shop to sell the shoes therefore putting food on their tables and roofs over their heads.
I wanted to go full circle and see my work at hand so in March 2017 I took an amazing trip to the Dominican Republic. My thoughts on the trip ended up in verse;
Life is found in giving a piece of your life away
Giving a slice of your heart and a bit of your soul to someone in need
Getting outside of yourself and looking into the eyes of another...with care
Being present in the moment
Being here for them
A wash of the feet
Creating a memory that can't be taken away
Life is heavy, life is light, life is meant to be shared with others
I encourage all of you to begin to collect those shoes or donate dollars to the cause of Wearing Out Poverty. I continue to collect shoes for Soles4Souls and can't wait until my next trip with them.
AMAZING team! Can't wait to he's to Haiti in April!
Traveled to Guatemala with S4S in 2013. The need there was incredible. We gave shoes to children who usually walked barefoot to school. They had cuts, bruises, and calluses on their feet. One little girl cried as I washed her feet. All she could say was "thank you." We also visited a dump where people live. They go through the trash to find food, clothes, and things to make their homes. They don't get the luxury of new things. I will never forget the looks on their faces when we handed out shoes. I've never felt so needed. It's humbling. You don't realize how lucky you are until you see people in real need. And I got to help them. This organization is amazing. S4S takes the simple act of giving out shoes to a whole new level. What this organization does is give people hope. Give them peace and joy. Traveling with S4S changed my life.
A group of friends and I have partnered with Soles4Souls for the past 2 years and are in the process of working with them again in 2016. We have collect 2,000 shoes in honor of a dear friend who lost her battle with Cervical Cancer in 2013. This is a wonderful organization that is making a HUGE impact on the world through something as simple as shoes. We feel very blessed to be able to have such an amazing partnership with them! Give HOPE. Give SHOES.
I just came across this charity and think they are doing an awesome job of providing shoes for those in need!
Soles4Souls commitment to "Wearing out Poverty" is outstanding. They are organized, personable with genuine staff members who put 100% in to everything they work on. I have never been happier working with a charity and love the simpleness of giving shoes to give someone a chance in life.
I am so glad and thankful that there is an organization that helps children in needs . Reviewing the good causes that the volunteers and donors have done to these children made my heart melt of overwhelmed joy and gives me the relief feeling of justice that was given to these children and that is why i am so proud of Pusong Pinoy. Not only that, Pusong Pinoy is definitely a transparent non-profit organization. I myself have experienced that this organization really ensures all the donations will surely reach the intended beneficiaries. This organization has helped the students of our Society. We are grateful to you for all the helps and blessings we have received from you.
With Love and prayers,
Sr. Christina SKD
General of Society of Kristudasis.
I have went on two Travel4Souls trips and had an amazing time! I also went with my church on a mission trip and we distributed shoes via Soles4Souls as well this past month.
Kelly H is an amazing leader and has a heart of gold. I visited both Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Haiti over the past year and have helped give over 1000 pairs of new shoes to children, as well as, used shoes to many others. I believe in continuing to engage my friends and neighbors throughout my community in shoe drives and hopefully encouraging them to also be a part of Travel4Souls one day! I highly recommend signing up for a trip. It'll change your life!
