BENEFITING: SOLES 4 SOULS
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2017
Who knew that a conversation about a beat-up, 15-year-old pair of Adidas would lead to a sneaker fundraiser for those in need? What started as a friendly conversation among business associates on a kayaking excursion ended up with a Twitter proposal -- "Let's put sneakers on the feet of those who need them." Merkle embraced this idea and is challenging everyone to help put shoes on the feet of individuals whose only shoes resemble Ethan's beat up Adidas. If this pair lasted 15 years, imagine what that can mean to someone?
Between July 26th and September 5th, Merkle is asking their staff, friends and associates to help shoe the shoeless and make a difference. We're teaming up with SOLES4SOULS, where 100% of your donation goes directly to providing new shoes to those in need. $10 can buy 10 pairs of shoes*! Please consider donating to his worthwhile cause. At Merkle, civic responsibility is in our DNA, and this is where the sneaker meets the road.
