It is estimated that 300 million children and 1.5 billion people do not have adequate footwear to protect them and provide the opportunities that we all take for granted? While it seems like an impossible number to lower down, there is something that you can do today to contribute before the festive season.
STA Travel Australia is working with Soles4Souls Australia to not only raise awareness of this neglected issue, more importantly to actually provide shoes and “travel” to the hands of those in-need both locally and abroad and YOU hold the power to make this happen! Simply visit one of the selected STA Travel Stores with a Soles4Souls donation bin in your area and donate a pair of shoes and you will change someone’s life!
Wait, your power doesn’t stop there – you are able to change your life as well before Christmas with STA’s November #mynextstep campaign. Just like Dorothy tapping her heels three times, your travel dream may come true in three easy steps as well:
- Upload a snap of your shoes on Instagram
- Comment #mynextstep with your dream destination
- Tag @statravel
The most creative entry will be offered a return trip anywhere in the world, plus a G Adventures tour and $2,000 spending money.
