Kim Kardashian is clearly a woman of her word, as the mom of two has followed through on her pledge to donate 1,000 sneakers to charity.

Although they weren't Yeezy Boost sneakers like her Tweets had led us to believe, Soles 4 Souls reports that it received the donation of 1,000 pairs and is currently in the process of sorting them for distribution. "The quantity and quality of the adidas and Kardashian Kollection donation from Kanye and Kim Kardashian West is really extraordinary," Soles 4 Souls president and CEO Buddy Teaster said.

A few weeks back, Kardashian hopped on Twitter in the middle of the night to share her wishes of helping a young girl named Amelia Flores meet a goal of collecting 1,000 sneakers for charity. "They helped her during Hurricane Katrina. I think I know the designer of Shoe of the Year Award!," Kardashian wrote.

As it turns out, Kim and Kanye came through in a major way, offering up a generous donation that surely won't be forgotten any time soon.

"These shoes are going to make a real difference and we're grateful for the awareness that came from Kim's post and the commitment both of them have shown to helping men, women and children in need," Teaster said.
