Wearing out poverty, one pair at a time.
Thanks to everyone who donated shoes to the Fernie Soles4Souls Shoe Drive! We estimate in excess of 400 pairs of shoes, will be making their way to those in need. If you missed out, here’s some information on Soles4Souls…
Soles4Souls is a not for profit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. With over 1.2 billion people living on less than $1.25 a day, 400 million of which are children, many don’t have access to one of life’s basic necessities: a good pair of shoes.
Founded in 2006, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 26 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. In a hugely active community like Fernie, and no place large enough to handle the volume of shoes looking for a new home, we believe Fernie can help.
The Fernie Soles4Soles Shoe Drive, was organised and operated by Fernie Tears & Gears and Red Tree Lodge. Operating fall 2015, with is one sole purpose: collecting as many pairs of shoes possible.
