Kanye West, Kim Kardashian

'Tis the season of giving, and that's exactly what Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have done this year. The couple recently donated 1,000 pairs of shoes to Soles 4 Souls, a non profit organization who, according to their mission statement, is "committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing."

Earlier in the month, a teen named Amelia Floes had announced that she was looking for 1,000 pairs of shoes to donate to Soles 4 Souls, and Kim had vowed that she and Kanye would help in the young girl's objective. And true to her word, KimYe donated the 1,000 pairs -- comprised of Adidas and Kardashian Kollection shoes -- to the organization. In a blog post on Kim's website, she told the story of Amelia's quest, and hers and Kanye's promise to help. She added: 

"Kanye and I were so happy to donate 1,000 shoes to Soles 4 Souls this holiday season. They were Adidas and Kardashian Kollection shoes! I'm so glad to have learned about an organization doing so much good around the world."

On the Soles 4 Souls website, both Amelia and the organization's CEO & President Buddy Teaster thanked Kim and Kanye for their generous contribution.

Amelia wrote, "I am so grateful for the overwhelming response to my shoe drive. I hope this will raise awareness surrounding the high demand for shoes in poor communities!"

FYI, Amelia received a pair of shoes from the organization after she and her family lost everything to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

And Souls 4 Soles CEO & President said, "These shoes are going to make a real difference and we're grateful for the awareness that came from Kim's post and the commitment both of them have shown to helping men, women and children in need."
