I admit it, I have held onto my shoes for far too long. I have 6 pairs of Doc Martens in my closet that haven't seen pavement in years. Soon, hopefully, my shoes will be on the feet of a job applicant in Haiti, or protecting the feet of a young adult in Seattle.

From now, through July 4, Brighton Collectibles in the Danbury Fair Mall will be accepting new or gently worn shoe donations for the non-profit organization Soles4Souls.

Soles4Souls is an American enterprise based out of Tennessee. They accept shoe and clothing donations in the name of eradicating extreme poverty by the year 2050. Brighton Collectibles is an American Company based out of California, and in the name of full-disclosure, they employ my wife as their store manager at Danbury Fair.

We do a lot of charitable work here at the radio station, and it always makes me feel good to know that my actions benefit someone who may not be as fortunate as I am. I hope you take the time to donate your shoes at Brighton in the Danbury Fair Mall before the 4th of July. You could really use the closet space. Just think, if Pam Brooks donated a third of her collection, there would be no shoe-less women in the world!
