You can help support Brandon’s campaign by purchasing his ‘Soles for Souls’ Tee. Brandon tells us why he chose to design a Tee for Soles for Souls:
“Soles for Souls originally sparked my interest as I am an avid collector of sneakers, however the reason why it is close to my heart is much deeper than that. I have been fortunate enough to never have to go without a pair of shoes my whole life. When you hear how shoes improve health and create so many opportunities in areas such as schooling, employment and sport, it makes me really value how important they are. Even a simple gesture of donating a used pair of shoes instead of just throwing them out can have a huge impact on someone’s life”
Brandon hopes to impact on as many lives as possible by raising funds for this great cause.
Check out Brandons video interview below where he tells us more about his reasons behind Soles 4 Souls:
Mission: To collect gently worn and new shoes which we redistribute to empower individuals around the world.
Soles4Souls Australia (The Butterfly Movement Ltd) was established in 2011 and is based on the theory that when a butterfly flaps its wings on one side of the world it can create a hurricane on the other side. The Butterfly Movement is about making our impact on the world and the lives of others, whether they live next door or across oceans, a positive one. It is through our thoughts, words and actions, we can:
“Be the change you wish to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi”
Soles4Souls Australia collect gently worn and new shoes for children, women and men in need around the world both in Australia and abroad, who are disadvantaged because they do not own shoes or have inadequate footwear.
Shoes improve health and create opportunities including schooling, employment and sport.
