Worldly Soles, charity collecting shoes in Sydney

We like how the City of Sydney is supporting Worldly Soles, a charity project initiated by Student Associations from TAFE NSW in 2010. Since the beginning of the year, Worldly Soles has worked with more than 50 colleges across NSW to collect shoes from the community. You can help collect 50,000 pairs of shoes, runners, boots, sandals, heels or flats! All shoes will be donated to children and adults in need in Third World countries, including Haiti, Africa and The Himalayas.
You can drop off your unwanted new or pre-loved shoes to all Libraries and Neighbourhood Service Centres in the City of Sydney council area until January 2011. Your spare shoes will make a significant difference to more than 300 million children and adults in need, who suffer daily from foot injuries and social disadvantage as a result of having never owned a pair of shoes.
Donating one pair of shoes is worth about 3 months of savings to someone in need. It also helps the environment by preventing shoes from ending up in landfill. All shoes are accepted as long as there is some life left in them. Just make sure the soles are in good, wearable, condition.

Collection points set up at all City of Sydney Libraries and Neighbourhood Service Centres:

Town Hall (One Stop Shop) Level 2 Town Hall House, 456 Kent Street Sydney
Redfern Neighbourhood Service Centre, 158 Redfern Street Redfern
Kings Cross Neighbourhood Service Centre, 50-52 Darlinghurst Road Kings Cross
