Hey hey all 🙂 Our last Colour of Couture challenge was an especially exciting one. We had a chance to research a real life Charity which we would like to support, should we be chosen as Miss Colour of Couture 2014. After some debate I chose the Soles4Souls campaign, which holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.
Did you know that there are approximately 3 BILLION people living in poverty on our planet? And did you realize that at least 3 MILLION of those people don’t even own shoes? Yet, we throw away nearly 700,000 tons of apparel and footwear in our landfills annually. Soles4Souls offers a simple and practical solution to solving this problem. Rather than throw your shoes away, simply donate them to a Soles4Souls local drop box, or raise community awareness by starting your own drop box in your community.
Soles4Souls estimates that every dollar donation = a pair of shoes for someone in need. The organization has partnered up with several global shoe companies who are now regularly donating their rejected shoes and older models. One of the most exciting opportunities of the Soles4Souls organization is the creation of micro-businesses throughout the world, which allows people to profit off the sale of the shoes and have hope in their lives for the future.
We were asked to style something which would represent us as an ambassador of the Charity of our choice. Today I wish to share my presentation build with you, as well as my Loovus Dzevavor “shoe dress” styling. Please read more about Soles4Souls today at http://soles4souls.org/ And be on the lookout for a big Shoe Fair this coming fall, if i am fortunate to bring my dream to fruition.
