Shoe Shopping Anyone?

Nov 14, 2008

Soles4Souls3I’m not much of a shoe shopper (or ANY kind of shopper), but this I can’t resist.

50,000 pair of shoes in 50 days. A challenge to shod shoeless feet throughout the world with something many of us simply take for granted.

If you’ve ever felt ill-equipped or unqualified to make a tangible difference in humanity’s vast ocean of need, this is your chance to shine. $5 to buy 2 pair of shoes for someone who doesn’t have any. It’s as simple as 2 or 3 minutes online. Don’t take my word for it: check it out here.

I already donated. One look at my bulging closet and joining the challenge seemed unavoidable. If I can spend $5 at Starbucks, surely I can forego my Extra Hot Chai and buy a couple pair of shoes in someone else’s name, right?

Happy shopping. And, if you have a blog or FB account, would you consider a brief post to spread the word?

    Michele, This is an incredible opportunity. Thanks for sharing it with us! I can’t wait to make my donation. I’ll be blogging about it. Meanwhile, I put the badge on my blog. It astounds me how such a small amount can do so much. Makes me want to give even more.

    You have a great heart, Michele.

    Met the guy who runs Soles for Souls. Seems like a quality guy and a great ministry.
