The 50,000 Pairs in 50 Days Challenge

Starting today, Soles4Souls will be launching the 50K in 50 days Charity Campaign.  We are spreading the word to all our supporters and partners to help raise money to buy 50,000 pairs of shoes in just 50 days!  Over 300 million people around the world don’t have shoes and are
forced to walk around unsafe and in potentially life-threatening
conditions and this is a very simple way to help do something about it.  So I want to keep this short.  If you haven’t yet, please

  1. Donate your $5 or more (it will take you under 2 minutes!) to buy 2 pairs of shoes for someone by clicking the above banner or here
  2. Once you’ve donated post this to your Facebook/ Myspace profile and get others involeved.
  3. Invite your friends to this website so they can know & do the same.
  4. Email everyone you know to donate. Here’s some text I’ve been using!  “Hey everyone!  Today launched the 50k in 50 days campaign. A great charity in Nashville is trying to get money to buy 50,000 pairs of shoes raised in 50 days…The cool thing is only $5 buys 2 pairs of shoes!!  It takes under 2 minutes to donate and only three clicks – super easy!  So if you think this is something you can do…five bucks, three clicks, two minutes = two pairs of shoes to someone in need, just visit http://www.50000shoes.com.  More importantly, this can only happen if we spread the word…so please forward this on to anyone you know…the people you work with, your mom, whoever!!  Oh, and one person who donated will win a trip to Mexico to hand deliver the shoes they bought to someone who has never owned shoes before. Could you imagine giving someone their very first pair of shoes?  All donations are tax deductible of course.  Thanks for your support!”
  5. Leave a comment on the message boards about when you donated or how you’re spreading the word!

This is a chance to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Please give, and then tell your friends. Just think for a
moment….what if you didn’t have a single pair of shoes??
