Souls for Soles
Organized by: Zamiya Sabour
My name is Zamiya Sabour. I own a business called Purple Soul. This business raises money from t shirts, fundraising, and marathons in order to construct an exclusive set of manufactured products. These products start from a wide range of shoes, and apparel. The concept of my business is that the body cannot exist without the soul and the shoe is not complete without the sole. In November of 1995 my father Luqman Sabour, gave my grandfather Omar Sabour - an army veteran, a kidney. My father Luqman Sabour would have received a purple heart from the Purple Heart Foundation. Linking all of this information together means that the body and the shoe needs the soul/sole in order to be functional and complete. I have began by selling t shirts for $20.00 with my business logo in the top right corner, the base color of the shirts are white and grey. I have raised plenty of money doing that but now it's time to do something different. 10% of the earnings that I receive from the t shirt funds, I donate to Kidney Foundations and Army Veterans. Donating a percentage of the earnings is important to my business because studies have proven that if your giving someone else's money to a good cause they might buy more of the products because they are helping someone else. This will make them feel good about themselves. If I met my fundraising goal I will ensure to donate a percentage of the earnings to Kidney Foundations and Army Veterans.
