We all know it’s better to give than receive and throughout the holiday season many companies and organizations sponsor programs that make it easy to do both. Soles4Souls has joined forces with Wears My Shirt, an innovative company that has designed cool graphic t-shirts that benefit Soles4Souls in several ways. Wears My Shirt, gives Soles4Souls a significant portion of each sale.
Soles4Souls collects new shoes and delivers them to the victims of suffering and collects used shoes to support small-business efforts to eliminate poverty. Wears My Shirt donated 5,000 t-shirts to get the word out about Soles4Souls and help raise funds for their various programs.
And in the spirit of the holidays, for a limited time you can used the code WMSSOUL for 50% off your purchase! Great opportunity to pick up a cool t-shirt as a gift or stocking stuffer and make a difference with a charitable organization. I love this idea and feel like its a great way to give a gift that has meaning and the shirts have cool designs to choose from, they would be great conversation starters. Each shirt you purchase provides 5 new pairs of shoes, really awesome right?
“Wears My Shirt had an innovative idea to not create a new cause or charity, but to partner with the current ones,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “With the help of organizations like these, Soles4Souls has the opportunity to further their mission. The Soles4Souls t-shirt designs will support the distribution of shoes to people who cannot afford them.”
The t-shirts each have a unique code stamped on the hem, and when you enter the code at wearsmyshirt.com, you’re given access to a whole new section of the website, where you can interact with the charity and other supporters.
