iheartfaces – Week # 22 : Barefoot Week (Soles4Souls)



This week at iheartfaces is a non-competition week and we can post more than one photo. The photo challenge this week is a theme designed around shoes and feet, to help bring the spotlight on this wonderful charitable organization called Soles 4 Souls.

About Soles 4 Souls: Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. The charity distributes these shoes free of charge to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away over 7 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes (currently donating one pair every 9 seconds.) The shoes have been distributed to people in over 125 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States. Soles4Souls has been featured in Runner's World, Ladies’ Home Journal, National Geographic’s Green Guide, and The New York Times. It has appeared on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, BBC, CNN and thousands of regional news outlets across North America. Soles4Souls is a 501(c)(3) recognized by the IRS and donating parties are eligible for tax advantages. Anyone can join our cause, and we need your help.

This could prove to be a very lengthy post for me given my love for shoes… See, I used to wonder why my mom had so many pairs of shoes. Now I understand.



Some shoes make you feel pretty and feminine.




Some shoes are made for comfort.shoes




Some are made for cute chubby legs.zoe-wetsuit




Some shoes are hand-me-downs from an older brother.




Some shoes are for playing soccer. Not exactly this pair, though.




Some are made for playing hopscotch. Sort of.image




Some shoes have Dora. And are purple. This little girl's favorite color.




But sometimes, really, who needs shoes?
