Here’s a cool charitable opportunity, should you have a serious hankering to tell the world about your favorite pair of shoes. I have to ask what my favorite pair might be… probably Danskos. I’d give up a lot of things, including breakfast and that magic yogurt I love, to spend every day in Danskos. But then, my feet are lesbians. They only tolerate comfortable shoes.
However, I can totally write a review that will fund a charity.
So, how does reviewing shoes translate to charitable work? Read on.
Attention all shoe lovers, critics and writers: Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity, needs YOUR help! Just 3 minutes of your time will equal 3 pairs of shoes for kids in need.
How is this possible? Our friends at Epinions.com are always on the lookout for simple, well-written reviews on products from toasters to cars. Shoe reviews make their website better and gives honest feedback to consumers looking to buy their next pair of sneakers, work boots, fashionable pumps and comfy flip-flops.
Epinions is looking for anyone to write a paragraph or two on your favorite (or least favorite) pair of shoes in your closet. As an incentive, they will donate $5 for EACH REVIEW to Soles4Souls. That equals about 3 pairs of shoes for 3 minutes of work!
To get started, visit www.epinions.com/shoes and sign up to become a member (it’s fast and free). Then write some reviews about your pairs of shoes (and if it’s a bad review, you can always donate them to Soles4Souls). But please, don’t wait too long – this promotion will end on December 31st. So break out your critiquing skills and start writing…some bare soles will thank you for it.
Remember, 3 Minutes = 3 Pairs.
