Soles4Souls Press Release

The fashion flip flop company to provide a pair of shoes for every pair sold
Nashville, TN and San Antonio, TX– June 1, 2010 – Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity,  announced Wednesday that for every pair of fashion flip flops sold by Lizzie Lou the charity will be able to distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need.  Lizzie Lou launched the program in coordination with Soles4Souls’ 11 in 11 campaign, with a goal of distributing 11 million pairs of shoes in 2011.  Soles4Souls has donated more than 14 million pairs of shoes worldwide, and most recently provided shoes to the victims of the tornadoes in Missouri and the Southeast.

Lizzie Lou Shoes is committed to helping the global community with the overwhelming need for footwear.  Currently, more than 300 million children worldwide do not own a single pair of shoes.  Considering most foreign countries require a pair of shoes for a child to attend school, their donation can mean the difference between a proper education and none at all. 

“We are excited about our partnership with Lizzie Lou and their help with our 11 in 11 program,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “The simple gift of shoes can truly change someone’s life, and brands like Lizzie Lou are making a huge impact on the international community with their long-term commitments to make a difference.”

“I love designing flip flops and making a high quality product, and it’s rewarding to give to such a worthy cause,” says Sheena Edwards, Lizzie Lou Shoes.  The partnership will be kicked off with a shoe drive also sponsored by a local boutique in San Antonio, Janie Christine’s.   “I am so excited and proud to be working with Soles4Souls and be able to give one for one.  It just doesn’t get more rewarding than that.”

I'm a big fan of People and People StyleWatch so it's really an honor to be featured on their website.  I hope this appearance brings in new customers and stores around the US who hadn't heard of Lizzie Lou Shoes until now.
