Soles4Souls is a charity that gives away free pairs of shoes to people all over the world.
The mission of the Nashville-based organization is to find new and gently worn shoes and give them away to people in need.
Soles4Souls has distributed more than 16 million pairs of shoes in over 125 countries since 2005.
The team coordinated relief efforts for the Asian Tsunami and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, netting more than 1 million pairs donated for the disasters, according to the organization's website.
For the holiday season, Soles4Souls has launched its "Thanks4Giving" campaign.
Wayne Elsey, founder of Soles4Souls, talked about this campaign and its purpose, as well as what a pair of shoes does for a person's self-esteem. Click play to see the interview.
