ShoeDazzle this week announced it will donate more than 500 pairs of ladies shoes for the charity, Soles4Souls, to give to women in need around the world.

Soles4Souls has already distributed more than 12 million free pairs of shoes worldwide and recently gave more than one million pairs of shoes to victims of the Haitian earthquake.

ShoeDazzle is happy to offer the women of Haiti an opportunity to be comfortable and stylish while protecting their feet from foot-borne illnesses they would catch if they went barefoot.

ShoeDazzle is an innovative online styling service delivering personalized monthly shoe, handbag and accessory recommendations to its members that have been chosen by its in-house team of top celebrity stylists. It is the company’s mission to make its members feel pampered and beautiful. So donating shoes to women in need is completely in line with ShoeDazzle’s core values.

“We are grateful for the continued support from ShoeDazzle,” said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “Their contributions can truly change someone’s life, and brands like ShoeDazzle are making a huge impact on the international community with their commitment to help make a difference.”

“We at ShoeDazzle couldn’t think of a better partnership than that with Soles4Souls,” said Deborah Benton, COO, ShoeDazzle. “Combining our love of shoes with our desire to change the world, Soles4Souls offered us the perfect way to help those in need.”

ShoeDazzle will donate a stylish brown flat shoe which combines a unique design into a comfortable and practical shoe. In addition to the shoe donation, ShoeDazzle pledges to make a financial contribution to Soles4Souls. New ShoeDazzle members who join the site and make their first purchase via a specially-created charity code can make their purchases count even more, as ShoeDazzle will donate $5 from each sale to Soles4Souls.

Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects, recycles and reuses shoes from warehouses of footwear companies and from the closets of ordinary people.
