I heard about this charity from an email discussion group and had to make it the cause of a quick and easy service project for our local MOMS Club chapter. There was a drop box for the cause in our local mall, and we filled up the whole thing (and broke it in the process, but that's my hubby's fault and not mine). I should have taken my camera but didn't think about it.

If you have not heard of Soles4Souls, it was founded in 2004 by Wayne Elsey to help victims of the tsunami in Southeast Asia. A rather simple concept, Soles3Souls collects new and gently used shoes around the country and redistributes them to those in need in the US and around the world.

The method is simple; clean out your closet and protect someone else's feet. This would be a wonderful cause for a shoe drive (like we had) or just as an incentive to get rid of stuff you don't use to benefit a soul who really needs them.
