Donate Shoes for Haiti Survivors

by Angela On January 15, 2010

Nike ShoeBy now you have probably seen the news about the terrible tragedy that happened this week in Haiti.  You can help people in Haiti while reducing your clutter at the same time.  Soles 4 Souls  is a non-profit organization whose mission is: To impact as many lives as possible with the gift of shoes.  The organization has helped bring shoes to victims of the Asian Tsunami and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  If you are local to the Austin area you can bring your old women’s, men’s, and children’s shoes to Total Relief Footwear located in the Woodland Shopping Center at the corner of 183 and Anderson Mill Road.  They are looking for work boots, sneakers, and children’s shoes.  Total Relief Footwear will be collecting shoes through the month of January, but asks that you bring the shoes in as soon as possible to help get the shoes to Haiti quicker.  Read related story on KVUE by clicking here.

If you are not in the Austin area you can still help by going to the Soles 4 Souls web-site  and click on “Donation Sites”.  You can enter your zip code to find a store near you that is collecting shoes.  You can also coordinate your own shoe drive or make monetary donations.

Just think there could be a pair of shoes sitting in your closet that you have not used in years that could make a huge difference in someone’s life. 

Here’s to taking small steps to make a big difference.

    I have several pairs of womens’ shoes that don’t fit your criteria, but if they can be used I would rather give them to the Haiti survivors. I do have sneaker, but also flip flops and loafers. Can any of these be used? I realize flip flops don’t offer a lot of protection, but if there is a shortage, maybe something would be better than nothing. Just a thought. I’m going to see if my husband wants to donate some of his shoes as well.
