Financial Planning Organization Collecting Shoes to Help Fight Against Global Poverty
Cleveland, Ohio – February 25, 2015 – Clarity 2 Prosperity and Prosperity Capital Advisors, national financial planning organizations with offices throughout the country, has partnered with Soles4Souls, an international non-profit organization dedicated to fighting global poverty, for a national tax season fundraising campaign. Clarity 2 Prosperity and Prosperity Capital Advisors’ offices will become shoe drop-off locations from now until April 15 with a goal of collecting 25,000 shoes nationwide and changing 25,000 lives worldwide.
“Soles4Souls is a worthy cause that makes a difference in the lives of people in need around the world, and we’re excited to be partnering with them this tax season. By offering our advisors’ offices as shoe drop-off locations, we are providing an opportunity for communities across the nation to make a difference at home and in impoverished countries,” says Jason L Smith, founder of Clarity 2 Prosperity and Prosperity Capital Advisors.
Anyone is welcome to come by a participating office and drop off gently used or new shoes for men, woman and children or to make a financial contribution. Every pair of shoes donated comes with a charity receipt for as much as $16 a pair that can be used as a charitable deduction on next year’s tax return. Participating offices are located:

The top five offices that collect the most will be rewarded with a shoe distribution to a charity of their choice in their community. The top advisor will also be invited on a trip to Haiti to participate in a shoe distribution abroad. “This is a great opportunity to actually get a chance to see the results of your fundraising efforts in your own backyard as well as in a country that has experienced such hardship and devastation,” added Smith.
“Working with Clarity 2 Prosperity and Prosperity Capital Advisors is a terrific example of partnership,” said Buddy Teaster, CEO of Soles4Soles. “With C2P engaging their entire network of advisors and clients to donate shoes, Soles4Souls can impact 25,000 lives around the world. Jason and his team understand the power of business to do good, to help ‘wear out poverty,’ and we couldn’t be more excited to work with this team.”
The shoes that Clarity 2 Prosperity and Prosperity Capital Advisors’ offices collect will be delivered to Soles4Souls, who monetizes used shoes to create sustainable jobs in underdeveloped areas and funds direct relief efforts, including distribution of new shoes and clothing. Most of the reusable shoes will be distributed to microenterprise programs that create jobs in Haiti and other impoverished nations. The resulting revenue will help fund the free distribution of new shoes in the U.S. and overseas.
