50,000 Pairs of Shoes in 50 Days

728_90

I wrote here and here about our barefoot experience at Grace Capital Church a couple of months ago.  Souls4Soles is an incredible organization that has set a lofty goal.  Over the next 50 days Souls4Soles is trying to raise the funding for 50,000 pairs of shoes.  By clicking here you can donate $5.00 which will purchase 2 pairs of shoes.  

Can you imagine what life would be like without shoes?  Walking around glass, rocks, metal, and disease with no protection?  Today, 300 million people look down as they walk from school, or to their jobs, or back home.  We can make a real life difference in their lives.  By donating just $5.00 to Soles4Souls we all have the ability to provide shoes for people who have never before owned a pair of shoes.  

This is a huge challenge to meet a huge need!

Donating is easy and takes just a click and a couple of minutes.  It requires no shipping, no wrapping and no trips to the post office. The monetary donation is small with $5.00 buying two pairs of new shoes.  Anyone can click and give, and all donations are tax-deductible.

After 50,000 pairs have been donated, one person (with a guest of their choosing) will be selected at random to deliver the shoes they purchased to someone in need on one of Soles4Souls’ trips to Mexico!

I just personally gave to this.  I challenge you to do the same.
