The Good Feet Stores and Soles4Souls Join Forces to Provide Shoes to Victims of Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
At Good Feet and Soles4Souls, we are terribly saddened by the devastation in Japan and are mutually committed to assisting in the recovery. Together, we are fully prepared for an extensive response should the need prove to be as widespread as reports are predicting.
An event like the Japan earthquake and tsunami can make people feel helpless—but they’re not. Good Feet and Soles4Souls are asking that people stop by any participating Good Feet Store location or visit Give Shoes to find the nearest shoe drop-off location and donate as many new or gently worn pairs of shoes as they can spare.
Why donate shoes?
Shoes are a personal item that protect from disease, reduce injuries and provide hope that things are going to get better. A natural disaster like the one in Japan immediately creates situations of extreme poverty, greater risk for disease and terrible feelings of hopelessness. Providing shoes that protect people from disease and give them a sense of hope and caring can help to speed up the recovery process and make it possible for the Japanese people to dream beyond their current situation and remind them that they are loved and cared about.
To financially sponsor a new pair of shoes from your laptop or smart phone, text the word “SHOES” to 20222 to donate $5 now.
