The Diabetic Shoes HuB is teaming up with Soles4Souls, a charity based in Nashville, TN. The online therapeutic shoes store, headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ, chose Soles4Souls as its charity of choice to make a difference by spreading foot health awareness and raising donations to provide shoes to people in need around the world.
Beginning August 1, 2012, customers will be able to support this cause just by shopping at Diabetic Shoes HuB. For every order over $99, the company will donate $1 from the purchase to provide someone in need with a pair of shoes. Customers will also have the opportunity to donate a dollar amount through Diabetic Shoes HuB that will be matched $1 for $1 with all proceeds going directly to Soles4Souls. Every dollar donated allows Soles4Souls to provide one pair of shoes to someone in need.
With more than an estimated 300 million children worldwide who do not have access to adequate footwear, the chances of developing life threatening diseases and infections are significantly increased. Proper footwear not only makes walking and running easier, it is necessary to protect against the spread of diseases, infections and parasites.
After speaking with Soles4Souls at a conference in 2011, the owners of Diabetic Shoes HuB have been advocates of the charity's mission and looked for opportunities to work closely with the organization.
"Working with diabetics and people with foot complications, we understand the importance of foot health and the risks and dangers associated with poor foot care," said Scott Peng, CEO of Diabetic Shoes HuB. "No one understands this more than our customers who face these risks on a daily basis. We are thrilled to partner with Soles4Souls, allowing us to spread awareness and offer a solution through philanthropic contributions to make a difference in the communities and lives of so many victims of disaster and poverty. By donating just a dollar we can give someone in need a pair of shoes."
