In light of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan many people will be looking for valid charities to help those in need so far away. There are many reputable ones that almost everyone knows about, (i.e. The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Mercy Corps, Unicef USA, etc ) but there is one that a lot of people haven't heard about as much and I want to change that. Soles 4 Souls is a MASSIVE charitable organization that rushes much needed shoes to disaster stricken areas of the globe. It may not seem like much, but what people don't realize is that in the wake of a natural disaster the ground normally walked on is suddenly a treacherous place to step for many reasons. Glass, metal, wood, even diseased corpses waiting to be buried. People need their feet covered to prevent further devastation from injuries and while they need clean water, fresh food and clothing as well as shelter etc...they also need shoes! PLEASE consider finding a donation sight near you or sending a monetary donation to this much needed disaster relief charity to help those devastated in Japan.
here and please let them know you heard about them here at AMH.
