Kanye west and Kim Kardashian couple to donate 1000 shoes

On Thursday December 10, Kim tweeted while breastfeeding and watching the show Dish Nation, where the story of 17-year-old Kansas teen, Amelia Flores, touched her heart.

"I'm up breastfeeding & watching this show Dish Nation," she shared on her timeline. "I heard the cutest story of a girl who is trying to find 1,000 pairs of shoes to donate to this charity [Soles4Souls]! They helped her during Hurricane Katrina."

She then joked, "I think I know the designer of Shoe of the Year Award!," referring to 'Ye.

According to Dish Nation, Kansas teen Amelia Flores is working with organization Soles4Souls to collect 2,000 shoes. The group, which donates shoes to those in need, helped Flores' extended family during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and she wants to give back.


At the time of broadcast, Amelia had gathered nearly 1,000 pairs, and Dish Nation challenged viewers to help her collect the final 1,000 before Dec. 18.

"Kanye and I would love to donate those 1000 shoes to Soles For Souls," Kardashian West, 35, wrote on Thursday. Kardashian West added that she was attempting to find Flores online but hadn't yet been successful.

Flores heard Kardashian West's calls and seemed surprised at the star's donation. "I really hope Kim k is talking abt me," she tweeted on Thursday morning.

Dish Nation was quick to respond to the 17-year-old, writing back "SHE IS!!!" Flores has now expanded her search after finding out that she can travel with Soles4Souls to distribute the shoes if she collects 25,000 and asked her social media followers to help her toward the goal.
