In a month-long fundraising mission, CUBG staff came together to support Soles4Soles, a non-profit that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.
Staff collected 88 pairs of shoes and $250 to donate to Soles4Soles in just one month.
Who is Soles4Souls?
Soles4Souls is an international non-profit social enterprise based in Nashville, TN. Since 2006, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries around the globe.
Their mission is to create sustainable jobs and provide relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing.
767 million around the world live in extreme poverty, less than $1.90 per day. 385 million are children.
Many don’t have access to sustainable employment to provide a steady source of income.
As a result, many don’t have the ability to provide basic necessities such as shoes and clothing for themselves or their family.
Their Approach to Wearing Out Poverty
Protect the environment – repurpose new and gently-worn shoes and clothing otherwise destined for landfills.
Create economic opportunities – utilize product to help entrepreneurs in emerging nations create and sustain small businesses to generate sustainable income.
Serve those in need – distribute new shoes and clothing to those in need and in times of disaster around the world.
