You can provide a new pair of Stride Rite® shoes for children in need all over the world for just $1.
From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, and here in the United States too, many people—especially children—make do without shoes. For people who survive by picking through landfills or who need to walk long distances to fetch cooking water for their families, shoes can make the difference between life and death.
For the homeless families hit hard by the economic downturn, victims of natural disasters like floods or hurricanes, or for children living in orphanages, new shoes help make difficult conditions more bearable. A pair of shoes can be cherished more than something to eat or even a new toy. More than 300 million children worldwide have never owned one pair of shoes—but you can help us change that number.
GreaterGood.org partners with Soles4Souls to provide shoes for children all over the world. Shoes help keep people healthy, happy and thriving. Soles4Souls helps 'Wear Out Poverty" in two distinct ways - by providing short term relief and long term solutions.
You can help. Just $20 distributes 20 pairs of new Stride Rite® shoes to children in the United States and worldwide. In partnership with Nashville-based Soles4Souls™, we are working to distribute 250,000 shoes to people all over the world. Help us make this vision a reality!
The idea for Soles4Souls™ began in 2004 when the tsunami hit Southeast Asia. Founder Wayne Elsey engineered the donation of a quarter of a million shoes to victims in the devastated countries. A few months later when Hurricane Katrina hit, Soles4Souls™ began a U.S. distribution that sent over a million pairs of shoes down to the gulf coast communities impacted by the hurricane. Since then, Soles4Souls™ has distributed more than 18 million pairs of shoes in 130 countries.
GreaterGood.org has ultimate authority and discretion with regard to the distribution of its funds. All expenditures made are consistent with the exempt purposes of GreaterGood.org.
