This week’s warrior is Lisa Pointe of Soles4Souls.
Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.
Lisa has been involved in numerous other philanthropic ventures, but Soles4Souls is her most exciting challenge yet. Thus far her career has enabled her to work abroad in Bosnia, South Korea, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Belize, and she is hopeful that this is just the beginning. She is passionate about connecting people with opportunities that make a true impact for those in need.
