I take them for granted. So do my kids. Every day before I head out the door, I put on shoes.
Flip flops, tennis shoes, high heels, sandals. I have choices. For people in many countries around the world, shoes are a luxury. Something to envy. Something to wish for. The one thing standing between them and SCHOOL.
Who knew that one pair of shoes could change a life? Soles 4 Souls knows. And by donating over 15 million pairs worldwide, (that is one pair every 7 seconds) they’ve seen that moment happen over and over again.
Friends, if you are heading to BlogHer – here is a chance for you to get involved. Shoe company Oh! Shoes is supporting Soles4Souls and will be at this year’s conference. AND? They want to see you. Oh!Shoes Ambassador and blogger, Julie Anderson shared the details with me: (think free shoes for YOU and people in need)
And remember, you can find Julie on twitter, (on her blog) and in the lobby at BlogHer. But if you would like to donate shoes or get involved once you are home, please visit Soles4Souls. With your help,there will be more women just like Agnes, sharing their stories, and feeling the power of a good pair of shoes.
