So many amazing businesses have helped us provide shoes and clothing to those in need all around the world in so many ways!
Here are a few examples of how retailers and manufacturers give back through our mission.

Each year Brighton Collectibles holds a “Have a Heart, Give a Soul” campaign, a company-wide shoe drive benefitting Soles4Souls. To date, they have donated 347,674 pairs of shoes.
Year-round, DSW collects gently used shoes for Soles4Souls. Last year, DSW customers donated more than 1.5 million pairs of shoes towards our microenterprise program. To help support our mission even further, they have donated 100,000 new pairs of shoes to be distributed in the United States. Read more about the campaign here.
For the sixth year in a row, Macy’s has teamed up with Clothes4Souls for the “Buy 1, We’ll Give 1” Share the Warmth campaign. Last year, Macy’s donated 35,000 coats to those in need. We are so excited for their next campaign that starts on October 12th!

With this mobile app, you can track your distance as you run, walk or bike. Charity Miles will donate 25 cents to Soles4Souls for every mile logged. For every $1 raised, Soles4Souls can provide and ship a pair of shoes that will either be donated to someone in need or used for micro-enterprise programs in developing nations. So every 4 miles= 1 pair of shoes!
