IT'S FROM THE SOLE
Andre McDonnell was born in St. Michaels, Barbados and moved to Brooklyn, New York at the age of five. In 2012, after playing basketball with friends, Andre spotted a man with no shoes on his feet. Having a sense of urgency, Andre took the shoes off of his own feet to give to the gentleman. This urgency is the foundation for "It's From The Sole" - a non-profit organization collecting and giving brand new sneakers to the homeless and less fortunate communities in New York City and around the world.
