The ‘SOLE‘ Drive
There are 2.2 billion children in the world, and 1 billion live in poverty. Soles4Souls estimated that 300 million children lack a pair of adequate shoes.
According to the EPA, Americans threw away approximately 790,000 tons of footwear and apparel in 2010.
Bare feet lead to diseases. Soil transmitted parasites –Hookworm, whipworm and roundworm afflict 740 million people a year, including 44 million pregnant women. Effects include low birth weights, malnutrition, and anemia.
The Goal: Raise 20,000 pairs of new or used shoes to be donated to 20 select organizations around the world for disbursement to those experiencing poverty and financial hardship worldwide !!
