Helping homeless kids put their best foot forward
......That first shelter visit left a strong impression on Nicholas, who started donating all the shoes he'd outgrown to local shelters. But he quickly realized that his donations, while well-intentioned, weren't that helpful........
So in 2010, at the age of 12, Nicholas started a program that donates new shoes to homeless children.......
"I didn't want to make one donation and stop there," he said. "I wanted it to be something I could do for the rest of my life."
With the help of his parents, he then started the Gotta Have Sole Foundation. Since 2010, the organization has donated new footwear to more than 10,000 homeless children in 21 states.
