Soles4Souls mission is to fight poverty through the collection and redistribution of new and used shoes and clothing. As a charity they have collected and distributed 26 million pairs of shoes to 127 different countries worldwide. Their aim is to provide relief in developing countries and to bridge the economic gap in the US and Canada. Soles4Souls strive to ‘provide hope in times of distress’ and pledge that ‘everyone deserves a good pair of shoes’. The now charity, was first founded as a disaster relief organisation after footwear was provided to those most affected by The Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Soles4Souls officially became a non-profit organisation in 2006 with a vision to eradicate extreme poverty by 2050. Their hard work and dedication won them The Memorial Foundation Leadership Award from the Center for Non-profit Management in 2014.
Shoe donations help provide both short term and long term relief to those on the receiving end. A few of these reliefs include; creating job opportunities, providing hope in time of distress and keeping people happy, healthy and thriving. It may not seem a lot but your donation can provide someone with a life changing opportunity. Your used shoes are another person’s new found hope as without shoes children can be prevented from attending school and adults unable to work. Soles4Souls are doing the best they can, but need your help to conquer their vision.

Vango are pleased to be supporting Soles4Souls and helping to get shoes to those who desperately need them. The Vango team have donated a large selection of old shoes to the cause through a shoe drive held in our office, collecting almost 100 pairs of old shoes. As well as the shoe drive, Vango have separately donated 700 pairs of Vango Footwear which were 100% functional and will be greatly appreciated all round the world. Our collection of shoes was delivered to Soles4Souls distribution centre in the Netherlands by shipping specialists DHL, who kindly stepped up to the mark and offered their services free of charge for this great cause. DHL were so struck by the work this charity does they decided to participate themselves by asking their employees to donate any of their old or unused shoes, which were sent away with our donations.
