Port Arthur, Texas rapper Bun B is teaming with BlackCelebrityGiving.com, to raise shoes for those in need this winter.
Bun B and BCG are heading up “The Sole Drive,” with the aim of collecting 20,000 pairs of shoes to be donated to 20 different organizations, around the world.
BCG released some stats from the EPA, which revealed that over 790,000 tons of footwear and apparel were thrown away in 2010.
“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,” Bun B stated. “Partnering with Sole Drive makes nothing but good sense to me. I’m proud to be a part of this movement.”
Fans who wish to help Bun B reach the goal of 20,000 shoes can drop off pairs at the North and South side locations of SF2, a popular retailer in Houston.
