RPAR seeks local shoe donations
Soles4Souls, founded by Wayne Elsey as a response to the tsunami which hit Indonesia in 2004, is a little more than a year old and was able to provide a quarter of a million pair of shoes for tsunami victims and triple that amount for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The organization provides shoes for not just disaster relief efforts but for everyday needs of people all over the world.
“The simplicity of what we do is the reason we’re successful,” Elsey said. “We get shoes; we give shoes … We call it changing the world one pair at a time.”
