December 1, 2009 (Newswire.com) - Carlsbad, Calif.: The Good Feet Store (www.GoodFeet.com) an international manufacturer and retailer of custom-fitted arch supports, announced today that it has partnered with international shoe charity organization Soles4Souls (www.soles4souls.org) for a holiday fund drive to provide shoes to people in need.
When a Good Feet customer logs onto www.GoodFeetGiftCards.com and purchases a Good Feet gift card in any denomination and it is redeemed in any participating Good Feet Store before January 31, 2010, Good Feet will donate 5% of the net proceeds to Soles4Souls.
"The Good Feet Company and its family of franchisees have been very blessed and fortunate, and as a group, we want to give back to our local communities through this partnership with Soles4Souls," said Good Feet President David Workman. "We have worked with Soles4Souls in the past and have seen the amazing impact that we can make together on the lives of our fellow man. We are so happy to have this opportunity to provide much needed help to those less fortunate."
Soles4Souls, a Nashville, TN based charity, collects shoes and donations from corporations and individuals, and distributes those shoes free of charge to those in need. To date, Soles4Souls has given away almost 6 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes in over 125 countries. The Good Feet Stores and Soles4Souls also work together with shoe drives in individual Good Feet Store locations.
"Soles4Souls is excited about partnering with The Good Feet during this holiday season," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. "It is through partnerships like these that we are able to continue to impact the lives of the hurting all around the world," he said.
