Soles4Souls Pays It Forward

Stories. We’ve all got one. They express our uniqueness, yet are inspired by those around us. They can make you laugh or cry. They can inspire. That’s why Pic & Pay is proud to spotlight our current partnership with Soles4Souls.

As a footwear brand that rewards those who help others, Pic & Pay is excited to announce our current partnership with Soles4Souls, a non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Founded in 2006, the organization has distributed more than 30 million pairs of new and used shoes in 127 countries. Thus far, Pic & Pay has donated over 13,000 pairs of shoes to those who need them the most.

“We are thrilled to be working with Pic & Pay on this initiative. Their commitment to helping Soles4Souls “Wear Out Poverty” here in the US and around the world is to be commended. Their contribution will enable Soles4Souls to continue to make a difference in millions of people’s lives,” says Pattie Graben, Director of Corporate Development.

900 million people around the world live in extreme poverty, many of whom do not have access to adequate footwear. In many developing countries, walking is a primary mode of transportation. Each day millions face the dangers of cuts, fungus, contaminated soil and insect bites that lead to infection, disease, amputation, and death. Providing safe, sturdy shoes could help end this cycle.

Soles4Souls disrupts the cycle of poverty by creating sustainable jobs and providing relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, the organization re-purposes product to supply its micro-enterprise, disaster relief, and direct assistance programs. Since 2006, it has distributed more than 30 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries. A nonprofit social enterprise, Soles4Souls earns more than half of its income and commits 100% of donations to programs. Click here to learn more.
