Hav A Sole Photos

My favorite Christmas story - we were at the Union Rescue Mission some years back when we met Elijah. He and his family were the very last ones to visit us. By that time, everything was gone. @dashx10 gifted this young man the sneakers off his feet and went home in just his socks. We made sure to come back and lace his mom, older bro and two little sisters. #havAsole ...

Thanksgiving Vibes! Our friend here didn’t get a pair last year, she did today!We pulled up to the Venice Beach basketball courts in the dark and complete downpour. We unloaded everything and got to work. @asiashabazz said a prayer filled with gratitude and love. She also asked for a break in the weather. It was answered, the rain stopped for the event! Huge thank you to @tina_wright, @lostangelsorg, @movingforwardtgthr and everyone who showed up today. This is not possible without everyone coming together. #havAsole ...

This is the end result of a partnership that means so much to me. The @nikelosangeles team goes beyond just donating sneakers to #havAsole. They have brought us into a culture that stands for equality. We have met life long friends that I love and respect so much. We take their donations and give them to people that need them. Again, a huge thank you to our Nike Family, we’re only getting started. ...

#havAsoleHistory - Dash and I met sometime late in 2011 at a taco Tuesday party. At that time I was deep into my career as a production assistant and fashion photographer. Dash had just entered his 7th year at Home Depot and also had his clothing line going. After we met we connected again via Instagram and started coordinating a photo shoot for his brand. Fast forwarding and after becoming best friends I fell into a sad place with my career and friendships. I realized I just wasn’t happy. In July 2014 I told Dash that I wanted to give out my shoes and that I’d call it #havAsole. He was on board and unloaded at least 30 pairs from his collection. Long story short, we kept at it. We’re five and a half years old and have given out over 19,000 pairs. I’m the Founder and Executive Director while Dash is the Operations Manager of this organization that means so much to us. ...

We’ve had an incredible week so far. Monday, @csiv21 from @Nike store 250 in Santa Clarita along with some of the swoosh fam helped us deliver some awesome sneakers to Bridge to Home. I’ll be real, it felt like a home with lots of love. Nicole and her team are really making things happen for the people experiencing homelessness out there. ...
