Help Bring Soles To Haiti…One Sip At a Time At Vino Bello Aug. 21st
Burien business Vino Bello will be hosting “Sippin 4 Soles,” a fundraiser to collect both new and used shoes for victims of the earthquake in Haiti on Saturday, Aug. 21st from 5pm – 9pm at their location at 636 SW 162nd Street.
In August, Seattle native Ruth Clark, will be traveling to Haiti with Soles4Souls, delivering and distributing shoes to those in need. The tax-deductible donations raised at “Sippin’ 4 Soles” will go directly toward this Haitian relief trip, providing shoes and other necessary relief to those affected by the massive earthquake this past January.
“Together with my good friend and colleague, Nancy, we will be traveling down to Haiti in August,” says a statement on Ruth’s website. “We will be delivering shoes and providing assistance wherever the need is at the time we are there. We aim to represent our friends and families in a humble, yet big way…we have set a combined goal to raise $7,000 for Soles4Souls, prior to our departure. Each donation is fully tax deductible and will go a long way to help Soles4Souls continue their work in Haiti. If you choose to make a donation, I send you my grandest and most heartfelt gratitude. Know that you are “…being the change” and I sincerely thank you for that. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you when we return.”
