Bill’s humanitarian involvement with Share Your Soles has brought tens of thousands of shoes to desperately impoverished people throughout the world including Central America, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, Peru, and Haiti. Bill has always been passionate about helping others, and states, “I had no clue what I was getting into when I took my first trip to Haiti with the organization. I was a lighting and sound technician with a major cruise line and traveled frequently to impoverished countries. From the airport, I noticed building after collapsed building as if Legos knocked over by a small child – it seemed unreal. It was heartbreaking to see kids in refugee camps playing with a deflated soccer ball, kicking it around with their bare feet. It was a revelation, so I got involved.”
