Soles4Souls Wins 2011 Organizing Excellence Award

"The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) announces the winners of the 2011 Organizing Excellence Awards, presented at its 23rd Annual Conference and Organizing Exposition held in San Diego, California. 
Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity based in Nashville, Tennessee, was honored for the incredible organizational effort required to successfully coordinate the collection and distribution of more than 13 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes in more than 125 countries. By encouraging and facilitating shoe donations, Soles4Souls provides relief and support to those in need around the world while helping people de-clutter their homes for a good cause. 

NAPO will continue to partner with Soles4Souls in 2011 through a contest in which NAPO’s 4,000 members will compete to collect one million pairs of shoes before the 2012 Annual Conference."

If you'd like to help out, contact your local NAPO chapter or a NAPO organizer near you.
