A few weeks back, we introduced you to Rikki Mendias, founder of the LA based non-profit Hav A Sole. He explained to us how his love of sneakers led him to a life of purpose when he started to gift his collection to those in need. Since its inception, Hav A Sole has donated thousands of pairs of shoes to the homeless of Los Angeles through direct outreach and in conjunction with local area shelters. They have taken three cross country road trips to expand the area of their gifting and have hopes of reaching every state in the nation.
Have a look at this mini documentary to learn more about what inspired Rikki and his partner Dash Penland to dedicate their lives to providing sneakers to the less fortunate. For more information on their non-profit check out their site HavASole.com
