Say what you will about American reality royalty couple Mr. and Mrs. Kardashian West, but when it comes to possessing the power to create change, Kim and Kanye have got the viral social media game on lock. Last year Wichita, Kansas, high schooler Amelia Flores announced her goal to collect 2,000 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls, a not for profit organization that aided Amelia’s extended family after Hurricane Katrina.
As destiny would have it, Kim happened to be awake in the middle of night breastfeeding when she heard local coverage of Amelia’s quest. Kim implored her more than 40 million Twitter followers to help her find the teen she heard about in the news, asking “Can u help me find the girl who is trying 2 get 1000 pairs of shoes by Christmas @DishNation @Soles4Souls Kanye & I would love to donate!” What happened next was a flood of texts and calls to Amelia’s phone to let her know Kim Kardashian West was tweeting about her, trying to find her and help her reach her goal. Soles4Souls got in touch with Kim and the reality star made good on her word just in time for a Khristmas miracle.
Thanks to Kim’s larger than life fanbase and all the attention she’s been able to draw to Soles4Souls, Amelia upped her goal to 25,000 pairs.
