See Kai Run donates over 900 pair of new children's shoes to Ukrainian relief

BOTHELL, Wash. - illiNews -- Children's footwear brand, See Kai Run has long partnered with non-profit, Soles4Souls in their efforts to help break the cycle of poverty in developing countries. So, when the call went out for clothing and footwear needed in Eastern Europe due to the war in Ukraine, See Kai Run was quick to step up.

According to UNICEF over two million children have been forced to flee Ukraine due to the war;  Soles4Souls president and CEO Buddy Teaster says many of these children need essentials like clothing and footwear. "Providing basic necessities like shoes is critical to families who fled with almost nothing" says Teaster. "Partnering with brands like See Kai Run allows us to engage this crisis as it unfolds."

In March, See Kai Run sent their shipment of over 900 pairs of new shoes to Soles4Souls, where it is being consolidated with donations from other brands.  The donations will then be loaded and shipped to partner organizations in Poland and Moldova, where a majority of Ukrainians have sought refuge.

"We're very proud of our partnership with Soles4Souls," says See Kai Run president and CEO, Helen Rockey.  And it's not just See Kai Run, the footwear and apparel industry has rallied big-time to help provide humanitarian relief towards this crisis."
