They weren’t all Yeezy Boosts, but the donation makes good on a promise Kim shared on Twitter back on Dec. 10. She asked her 38.1 million followers to help her find a girl who was seeking one thousand pairs of sneakers for a charitable donation.
Her name is Amelia Flores, a high school senior in Andover, Kan. She first became aware of Soles4Souls when the organization helped her family’s recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Amelia has been collecting sneakers since the beginning of November in hopes of reaching her goal of 2,000 pairs. Of course, the Wests’ generosity is a huge boost.
“The quantity and quality of the Adidas and Kardashian Kollection donation from Kanye and Kim Kardashian West is really extraordinary,” said Soles4Souls CEO/president Buddy Teaster. “The fact we are able to distribute them to people in need here in the US is an even bigger deal.”
