Buddy Teaster’s passion for philanthropy and global change led him to take on the role of leading the largest provider of free shoes to children in need around the world. As CEO of Soles4Souls, he serves as the leader of a global not-for-profit dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.
