It is always a grieving sight to see a bare-footed person on the same street, on which you have come down wearing the best branded pair of shoes available in the market. Wayne Elsey must have been touched by such a pathetic sight and thus he led to the foundation of Soules4souls in the year 2005. The organization collects shoes from the warehouses of foot-wear companies and distributes them to the needy, over-looking the person's religion, caste, creed or any other criteria. They have distributed more than 17 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes to the people of approximately 127 countries, which includes Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States to name a few. In order to carryout relief efforts, they have stretched their helping hands to the victims of Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and Rita by donating more than 1 million pair of shoes. 

Many fundraising events have been organized to help Soles4souls and many singers and artists performed in those events. However, Moby's name shines the most among all the singers.
