NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- ShoeDazzle announced Monday that it will be donating more than 500 pairs of ladies shoes to Soles4Souls for women in need around the world. To date, Soles4Souls has donated more than 12 million pairs of shoes worldwide, and most recently has donated more than 1 million pairs to the victims of the Haitian earthquake. ShoeDazzle is excited to offer the women of Haiti the opportunity to be comfortable and stylish while protecting their feet from foot-borne illnesses.
ShoeDazzle is an innovative online styling service delivering personalized monthly shoe, handbag and accessory recommendations to members from its in-house team of top celebrity stylists. Making members feel pampered and beautiful is the company's mission and donating shoes to women in need is right in line with the company's core values.
"We are grateful for the continued support from ShoeDazzle," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. "Their contributions can truly change someone's life, and brands like ShoeDazzle are making a huge impact on the international community with their commitment to help make a difference."
"We at ShoeDazzle couldn't think of a better partnership than that with Soles4Souls," said Deborah Benton, COO, ShoeDazzle. "Combining our love of shoes with our desire to change the world, Soles4Souls offered us the perfect way to help those in need."
ShoeDazzle will donate a stylish brown flat which combines a unique design into a comfortable and practical shoe.
In addition to the shoe donation, ShoeDazzle pledges to make a financial contribution to Soles4Souls. New ShoeDazzle members who join the site and make their first purchase via a specially created charity code will have an opportunity to make their purchases count even more, as ShoeDazzle will donate $5 from each sale to Soles4Souls.
Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects, recycles and reuses shoes from warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. We distribute usable shoes to people in need around the world (we recycle less than 2% of donated footwear). Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away nearly 12 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes (currently distributing one pair every 7 seconds). The shoes have been distributed in 125 countries, including Haiti, Kenya, Nepal and the United States. Soles4Souls is a 501(c)(3) recognized by the IRS and donating parties are eligible for tax advantages. Visit www.giveshoes.org for more information.
