Before you throw out those old shoes, what about recycling them. If your shoes are just old, you got a new pair to replace them, or your getting rid of them because the just simply hurt and your never going to put them on again, consider donating them to this worthy cause. http://www.soles4souls.org/ There are plenty of people out there less fortunate than you, that need a pair of shoes. Of course, if they are totally torn up, by all means, put them in the trash. But the gift of a new pair of shoes is something someone out there could really use and would probably be very thankful for. Especially if your shoes look like mine. I am not hard on shoes, so when I am done with them for one reason or another, I send them to Soles 4 Souls. There are so many ways that you can help give to someone in need, but the most important gift to those in need – Shoes. If you have kids, you know how they can grow out of shoes quickly. The ones they have for everyday are usually too worn out. Consider this, Soles 4 Souls.org. You’ll feel good about where your old shoes have gone.
