“It is an amazing cause. You give money and they help needy people and people in poverty to get shoes,” said Kim Kardashian. “For the price of a latte, you can give two pairs of shoes to people in need.”
Donating is easy at www.50Kshoes.com. It requires no shipping and no trips to the post office. The suggested donation is very affordable, with $5.00 buying two pairs of new shoes. Kim’s challenge ends on January 31, 2010 and all donations are tax-deductible.
Money raised will go toward the purchase of 1,000 pairs of new shoes which will be distributed in Kim’s honor for her support. The distribution will take place on January 8, 2010 in New Orleans. Soles4Souls has sent over 1 million pairs of new shoes to the area since Hurricane Katrina devastated the area in 2005.
In addition, Kim’s shoe endeavor ShoeDazzle.com will donate $5 to Soles4Souls for every person who registers with ShoeDazzle.com from now until December 23rd.
Through the new world of blogging, emailing, twittering, and through many other forms of social media, Kim’s support will help spread the charity’s mission to “Change the World, One Pair at a Time.” Kim’s fans can follow her on Twitter at http://twitter.com/KIMKARDASHIAN and Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/KimKardashian .
