Grammy-nominated rapper Bun B will host The Sole Drive 2012 to raise 20,000 pairs of shoes, to be donated to 20 select organizations around the world. The shoes will be distributed through a partnership with Black Celebrity Giving to those suffering from poverty and financial hardships. “As much as I love shoes, it doesn’t hold a candle to the love I have for the people of this world, especially those who can’t necessarily help themselves. Partnering with Sole Drive makes nothing but good sense to me. I’m proud to be a part of this movement.” said Bun B.
Drop of locations for donations have been set up through sf2 apparel and retail, a premier hip-hop clothing store in the city of Houston. Having locations on the North and Southside’s of Houston, sf2 serves as a convenient host for those looking to help with the cause. DJ Mars will also join in on the campaign powered by SnoBall.com as the official event and campaign DJ.
All donations will benefit the Star of Hope homeless Shelter. Other programs interested in becoming recipients of the Sole Drive Campaign can still send in a request for participation by emailing [email protected]
