Soles4Souls Inc., the international shoe charity dedicated to giving away free footwear to those in need, announced that it has finalized its schedule for a multiple city distribution effort across the country in order to mark its Five Year Anniversary.
Soles4Souls is visiting 20 cities in nine states beginning January 8, when the Soles4Souls RV Tour will visit New Orleans to distribute new shoes to children staying at The Covenant House, which provides shelter and services to homeless, runaway and at-risk youth ages 16-21.
Kim Kardashian, the popular TV star and established businesswoman, is helping raise funds for the Soles4Souls distributions through a video campaign on www.50kshoes.com. She has also pledged her time in helping distribute the shoes to children in need.
"We are excited that Ms. Kardashian has joined our efforts to put new shoes on the feet of kids who really need our help," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO. "She is helping us engage the general public with our mission and her assistance is incredibly valuable," he said.
