Gap, Inc. Piperlime Partners With S4S

LAS VEGAS — Gap Inc.'s Piperlime recently teamed with Soles4Souls™ Inc. (S4S) to hold a celebrity shoe auction featuring glamorous footwear donated by celebrities including Jessica Simpson, Misha Barton, and Sharon Stone. The mission of S4S is to impact upon as many lives as possible with the gift of shoes. To date S4S, a nonprofit group founded in December 2004 after a tsunami hit Southeast Asia, have distributed over one million pairs of new and gently-used footwear to those in need.

Last December, S4S had also signed an agreement with three baseball stars to help deliver free shoes to their home countries. Manny Mota, Raul Mondesi and Orlando Cabrera have teamed up with S4S to coordinate massive footwear drives in the Dominican Republic and Colombia. Each player will receive a container of shoes, an estimated 15,000 pairs and they will help distribute the footwear to thise most in need in local communities.

Manny Mona will distribute his container of shoes in the El Tamarindo area of Santo Domingo. Raul Mondesi will help distribute the shoes in San Cristóbal, where he is currently a council member for the city of San Cristóbal, and Orlando Cabrera will help distribute the shoes in his hometown of Cartagena, Colombia. S4S are always looking for donations of shoes, or cash for freight, hosting a shoe drive, or even donating your time as a volunteer.

Although this 501(c)(3) is based in Nashville, it also has an office in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information, visit Foot Talk, a blog dedicated to “a collection of short anecdotes and funny stories about feet and shoes.”
