Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West made good on their promise to donate 1,000 pairs of shoes to non-profit organization Soles 4 Souls!
According to PEOPLE, the couple donated 1,000 pairs of Adidas and Kardashian Kollection shoes to the organization, which fights to “wear out poverty,” through clothing and shoe donations! “Kanye and I were so happy to donate 1,000 shoes to Soles 4 Souls this holiday season,” Kim wrote on her website. “I’m so glad to have learned about an organization doing so much good around the world.”
Kim decided to get involved with the non-profit after watching a television special about a teenager’s drive to collect 2,0000 shoes for donation.
“A few weeks ago, I was up breastfeeding and watching a show called Dish Nation when I learned about Amelia Flores, a girl who was looking for 1,000 shoes to donate to Soles 4 Souls,” she added in her post. “The organization helped her and her family during Hurricane Katrina and she has started collecting her own sneakers to give back. I knew I had to get involved!” Amelia had reached half of her goal when Kim tweeted about wanting to support the cause.
Soles 4 Souls gladly accepted the donation, with a group of workers posing with boxes of sneakers while holding cardboard signs reading, “Thank you Kim and Kanye.”
Very cool of Kim and Kanye to give back in such a huge way!
