Soles4Souls helping change lives a pair of shoes at a time

Living June 16th
SAN ANTONIO - Soles4Souls, a charity that began not long after the Asian Tsunami, has provided over 14 million shoes to people in need. It is estimated that 1 out of every 4 people in the world are not able to afford shoes.

Soles4Souls has a simple mission: to take some of the wealth piled up in American closets, and give them to people in desperate situations.

A local business here in San Antonio, Lizzie Lou Shoes, has teamed up with Soles4Souls to help encourage us to get rid of gently used shoes. Beginning June 16, they will have a shoe drive that will last until the end of July. This is the perfect opportunity to give up those shoes in the back of your closet for a good cause.

After cleaning out my closet this week, I donated a bag of my unwanted shoes and traded them into Lizzie Lou Shoes for a great deal. 2 pairs of shoes got me a 20% discount off any pair at Janie Christine's! I got to browse through beautiful hand stitched flip-flops, that are made with top quality crystals and real leather. The shoes are so affordable, it's impossible to leave without more than one pair.

For every pair of Lizzie Lou Shoes sold, Soles4Souls will donate a pair to someone in need. Customers who donate 2 pairs of gently used shoes or donate $2 will recieve a coupon for 20% off any pair at Janie Christine's, good through 7/31!
