Together with Brittnee Sheath - Miss Teen Hawkesbury Galaxy Australia, we dropped our recently collected shoes to 'sole therapy', NSW's only collection point located in Ramsgate Beach for Soles 4 Souls.
Soles4Souls Australia and Soles4Souls, Inc are organization that is 'wearing out poverty' one pair of shoes at a time!
Having already distributed over 26 million pairs of shoes worldwide to those less fortunate the work they do is truly invaluable and they have touched the 'souls' of those they have met in the most remarkable way.
I have collected (to date) just over 140 pairs of shoes. While this is an extremely small number in the bigger scheme of things, each pair has contributed to touching the lives of just over 140 people and assisted in providing them a better quality of life.
In many developing nations, walking is the primary mode of transportation. Every day millions are exposed to unsanitary conditions that lead to diseases such as hookworm, threadworm and the dreaded Tunga Penetrans, or “jiggers”. These diseases may lead to sickness, even death. They also keep children out of school leaving them without an education and continuing the cycle of poverty.
Im excited to continue my shoe drive collections with Soles4Souls and i encourage each of you to find out more and doing what you can to assist them further!
