MORE DETAILS: My favorite part about this: instead of just handing out shoes right and left, Beautiful Feet works with the leaders of established organizations in these poverty areas who already have relationships with the local parents and children. They have a great video on their about page here. Beautiful Feet also partners with Jedidiah, a company with beautiful graphic tees who works with a new non-profit each season to develop great-looking apparel for great causes.
