The donated shoes are delivered to Soles4Souls, an international anti-poverty organization. Most of the reusable shoes are distributed to microenterprise programs to create jobs in Haiti and other poor nations. The resulting revenue will help fund the free distribution of new shoes in the United States and overseas.
