Soles4Souls Update

Thanks to everyone's generosity, I  collected and shipped out nearly 300 pairs of shoes (277 to be exact) to Soles4Souls, which is pretty amazing!
my boss helped to sort and package the shoes.
he also donated the shipping materials!
This year, Soles4Souls distributed donations in 125 countries and has given thousands of people what many of us would consider to be rather basic: shoes. Footwear is extremely important because one can pick up hookworm and other parasitic diseases that enter the bare foot. Shoes also minimize foot infections in the diabetic population, as well as lower the risk for podoconiosis and Kaposi’s sarcoma. So your donation may have actually saved lives!
another friend lent me warehouse space and covered the cost of shipping
If you still have some shoes you'd like to donate, you can find a drop off box using their locator.

Thanks so much!
