Nicholas Lowinger, a 15 year old from Cranston, RI, is doing good in a very grounded way. Since he was 5, Nicholas has been volunteering at local shelters. Which is where he discovered the lack of footwear present at these places of refuse. So he did something about it.
Gotta Have Sole is the organization that Nicholas started in 2010. They take donations from every avenue and hand-pick the shoes delivered to each child in need depending on gender, age and foot size. Due to his efforts and extraordinary amount of care, Nicholas was one of 10 Peace First Prize winners this year.
