Now that the holiday season is in full-swing, we are all scouting for goods to add to our wish lists. But, as we all know, this is also an important time to give back to those in need. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, tomorrow, December 1, marks World Giving Day. In celebration, Dress for Success, has partnered with Aldo and California Closets, to announce #GivingShoesDay, encouraging women to donate their professional shoes to less fortunate females.


Tomorrow will be the fourth annual shoe-drive, and the organization aims to collect more than 6,000 pairs across the U.S. and around the globe. Since the campaign’s establishment in 2012, more than 8,400 pairs of professional footwear have been collected and distributed to women in need.


The top 10 individual donors will receive a $250 ALDO gift card, and the rest of will have the satisfaction of knowing that one more disadvantaged woman will be able to put her best foot forward in the workforce.
