Sneakers for Homeless

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff" – walking a mile in another man's shoes. Or, in this case, sneakers.

Today we profile a fashion maven and self-confessed sneaker nut who realized that sometimes fashion is about more than just style, it's about dignity.

"My name is Andre McDonnell, I'm the founder of it's from the sole. 'It's from sole' is basically a non-profit organization where people donate sneakers," says the organization's founder. "We refurbish the sneaker, clean the sneaker, take the inner soles out, wash them... We go around New York City and give homeless people sneakers."

Right now, Andre is doing this in New York, but he has plans to expand to other cities. You can find out how to donate your sneakers or money through the organization's Facebook page: Facebook.com/ItsFromTheSole.
