NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 23, 2007 --Soles4Souls Inc., the international shoe charity based in Nashville, is reaching out to local celebrities to help people in need, both here in the U.S. and around the world. The non-profit organization needs AUTOGRAPHED shoes from celebrities to be used in a May fundraising auction. The charity will take either new or "gently worn" shoes.
