REMYXX Sneakers to Donate Shoes to Soles4Souls Through Kickstarter Campaign
The world´s only landfill-free sneaker steps in to give shoes to people in need.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity dedicated to providing shoes to individuals living in poverty, is delighted to announce that REMYXX Sneakers will donate shoes on behalf of supporters of their Kickstarter campaign. The world´s first 100 percent recyclable shoe is currently eliciting grassroots support through a fundraising campaign on the Kickstarter website.
REMYXX will donate five pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls for every donation of $189 or more, and 10 pairs of shoes for every donation of $289 or more. Also, for every donation of $76, one pair of shoes will be donated as well as for every donation of $1,950, 60 pairs of shoes will be donated. The donations will be sent to some of the 1.5 billion individuals around the globe who live in poverty and are at risk for diseases like hookworm and malnourishment.
“I decided to work with Soles4Souls because we share the same vision,” said Founder and CEO of REMYXX Gary Gagnon. “I hope to donate as much as possible to their cause and look forward to a long term partnership for the future.”
Soles4Souls has distributed more than 18 million pairs of shoes around the world with the help of partners like REMYXX Sneakers. With one in every four adults in the world living in abject poverty, basic necessities like shoes are often unavailable. In developing nations like Haiti, Honduras and Tanzania, walking is the main form of transportation, and shoes can protect a person´s feet from cuts and infections.
“After first hearing about REMYXX from their appearance on ABC´s Shark Tank, we were intrigued by their desire to create a 100% recyclable shoe,” said Kevin Goughary, CEO of Soles4Souls. “Not only are they creating a product that is environmentally friendly, but now they are supporting individuals around the world who cannot afford shoes. We are pleased to be partnering with them during their Kickstarter campaign.”
