Aussie Soles Buy 1 Give 1 initiative will see hundreds of thousands of Shoes to Help Soles4Souls Fight Global Poverty
Brand new shoes can help provide meaningful opportunities that many in developing nations need, which is why Aussie Soles has launched a Buy 1 Give 1 initiative to provide as many pairs sold to those people in need.
The shoes that Aussie Soles sell will be calculated each quarter and the equal amount will be donated to Soles4Souls. Souls4Souls is a non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries.
Aussie Soles are a strong supporter of the Soles4Souls’ mission,” said Craig Taplin, Director “To donate a pair of shoes for every pair we sell in Australia is a great opportunity for us to give back and make a difference around the world.”
The World Bank estimates that approximately 767 million people, 385 millions of which are children, live on less than $1.90 per day. Millions of these children don’t have access to adequate footwear resulting in significant ramifications for their health and well-being. Meanwhile many adults don’t have access to sustainable employment.
Soles4Souls not only provides short-term relief by distributing brand new shoes and clothing donated by retailers and manufacturers, but also creates economic impact and keeps unwanted textiles out of landfills. All of the Aussie Soles donated shoes will be distributed to the organization’s micro- enterprise programs that create jobs in Haiti, Honduras and other developing nations. The resulting revenue will help fund the free distribution of new shoes and clothing in the U.S., Canada and developing nations around the world.
“The Aussie Soles Buy 1 Give 1 initiative will grow year on year. When purchasing a pair of Aussie Soles know that you are taking a step to help disrupt the cycle of poverty around the globe.”
