Soles4Souls™ Inc. Opens Its Doors to Local Visitors on February 16

NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 9, 2007 -- Soles4Souls™ Inc., the international charity dedicated to providing free footwear to hurting people around the world, has opened its doors to local visitors. The footwear charity collects and distributes free footwear around the world, and is celebrating its Grand Opening by hosting an Open House, open to the public. The event will take place on Friday, February 16, 2007, from 1-6pm at 2900 Lebanon Road in Nashville.

"Nashville is a key part of our overall plan," said Wayne Elsey, Founder of Soles4Souls and President of Kodiak-Terra USA, Inc. "Our Open House is designed so that all visitors can meet our staff, get a personal glimpse of our offices, and understand our ongoing mission," he said.

"We are excited to meet the public in our new offices," said Paul Wilson, President of Soles4Souls Inc. "The facility is fantastic and gives our organization the space it needs to grow and effectively reach out to people around the world," he said.

The address of the new headquarters -- 2900 Lebanon Road -- has a long history of supporting charitable causes. It was previously the offices for The Gideons International, the well-known charity that distributes free Bibles to hotels, hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, and other facilities. "This facility has been used to reach out to the public before," Elsey said, "and we are proud to continue a sense of community outreach from the same location.
