Young Students Get New Kicks

Some kids in Tulsa, OK received a free pair of shoes last Friday. As seen on Newson6.com, Soles4Souls teamed up with The Community Action Project and Shoe Carnival to hand out 150 pairs of shoes at Skelly Early Childhood Education Center.

Soles4Souls has a lot motivation to organize these kinds of give-aways.

"There is 300 million children in the world without shoes, yet there is 1.5 billion pairs in Americans closets that aren't even worn," said Soles4Souls Executive Vice President David Graben.

For every $2 donation at Shoe Carnival someone will get a pair of shoes. And, if you donate a new or gently worn pair, Shoe Carnival will give you a coupon for $5 off a new pair.
