Dear Nice Kicks readers,
Earlier this week, the people of Haiti suffered an unimaginable tragedy. Millions have lost their homes and tens of thousands have lost their lives following an earthquake that shook the nation’s capitol of Port-au-Prince. Many across the globe are asking how they can help Haiti in this desperate time of need and what they can do to support the people of Haiti as they endure the long process of rebuilding and recovery.
Late last night, we reached out on twitter for all Austin area sneakerheads to join in on our team’s efforts to collect shoes to send to Haiti. We received a great response and have been collecting shoes throughout the day at our offices, but now we need the help from EVERYONE.
We are pleased to announce that we are now in partnership with an awesome charity that is making a major commitment to bringing footwear to the victims of this awful disaster. Soles4Souls is accepting donations for new or gently worn shoes that will be shipped to Haiti.
I spoke with a coordinator at Soles 4 Souls earlier today and they already have 30 containers of brand new shoes already en route across the Gulf to reach Haiti.
There are many ways that all of us can help in this effort.
1) Text “SHOES” to 20222 to make a donation of $5 to Soles4Souls
2) Send any new or gently worn shoes to the address below
