Spend a little - Give a lot

The 50,000 Pairs in 50 Days Challenge

Are you looking for a way to give a little extra this holiday season? Spend 5 minutes, $5 dollars and make a huge difference in the lives of 2 people - your $5 buys 2 pairs of shoes!

soles4souls is a fantastic charity in nashville that has one mission: get shoes to people who need shoes. Over 300 million people around the world don’t have shoes and are forced to walk around unsafe and in potentially life-threatening conditions. Not only is it unsafe physically, but having to look down all the time causes these people to also live without dignity and confidence. I went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic when I was in 7th grade and I will never forget seeing adults and children walking around with bare feet - oftentimes in and through raw sewage. Unsanitary to say the least!

And not only can you help 2 (or more) people with your donation - you just might get to do it in person! That's right...


One person (and their guest) will be chosen at random to hand deliver the shoes they purchased on a soles4souls trip to Mexico. Can you imagine handing someone their very first pair of shoes? What an incredible experience!

So as we approach this holiday season, take a minute & send shoes to someone in need - involve your kids, skip coffee, a snack or one meal out - it only takes $5!! Check out 50000SHOES.COM for more info!
