ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Complete the Pair (CTP), a company that successfully engineers connections in the business world while simultaneously providing relief to those in need, officially launched today and announced their alliance with the charitable organization, Soles4Souls. Whether you're a salesperson trying to get your "foot in the door" with a prospective client or a job seeker trying to make the ultimate first impression with a potential employer, CTP helps people stand out from the crowd in the right way with its dynamic business development tool designed to produce measurable results while helping people engage, cultivate and build relationships that tackle a critical worldwide public health issue. The process inspires and motivates the participants in a purpose-driven and memorable way.

Complete the Pair provides a turnkey system of successful "face-to-face introductions" and a solution for the more than 23 million salespeople in the US seeking to get their "foot in the door" with their prospective clients -- and for millions of job seekers looking to make an everlasting first impression with employers. "Whether you're a salesperson or a job seeker, Complete the Pair puts the power of human connection in your hands. Through our strategic alliance with Soles4Souls, we help people to stand out and make connections by creating a conversation about a humanitarian cause that people can achieve together," said Goose Lopez-Torres, CTP principal and founder. "Our process is designed to grab a person's attention with an unusual dimensional mailer -- in this case, a shrink-wrapped single shoe -- and an invitation to meet and 'complete the pair' to donate a potentially life-changing pair of shoes to a person in need through the charitable organization Soles4Souls (S4S)."

Since 2005, Soles4Souls has delivered over 20 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes to people in over 127 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States. Soles4Souls coordinated relief efforts for the Asian Tsunami and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, netting over 1 million pairs donated for these disasters. "We are thrilled to partner with Complete the Pair," said Buddy Teaster, Chief Executive Officer of Soles4Souls. "This partnership will allow us to help even more people regain their dignity and break the cycle of poverty. We also believe that the conversations that are started and the connections that are made because of Complete the Pair will further drive awareness about the importance of shoes to the lives of those in need."
