*I work with Stride Rite on promotions. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*
Just last week, I visited one of my favorite shoe stores, Stride Rite, to get the kids ready for Back to School. Since my kids were very young, we have always turned to Stride Rite to find comfortable and affordable shoes. Besides being a shoe store, they also are helping with a wonderful promotion join on now. Stride Rite is launching in partnership with The Little Gym to benefit Soles 4 Souls!
Throughout the month of September, Stride Rite wants to help families across the country find new homes for their gently worn and previously loved footwear. Working in concert with The Little Gym, Stride Rite is anticipating a donation of tens of thousands of shoes to benefit Soles4Souls, the international charity that collects shoes and distributes them to people in need around the globe. The initiative kicks off today Wednesday, 9/3 and continues through the end of the month at all Stride Rite stores, stride rite.com, and The Little Gym nationwide.
It is estimated that 400 million children globally live in extreme poverty (defined, as living on less than $1.25 per day). These children may not have access to adequate footwear and without shoes, many won’t be able to avoid disease or go to school.
As a thank you, for every pair of shoes donated from 9/3 – 9/30, families will receive 20% off towards a same-day purchase of new shoes. In addition, families will also receive a certificate for a free class at The Little Gym with every purchase.
