Today I'm here to tell you about this fantastic idea that my lovely friend Katie came up with.
Basically she has gone shoeless for 6 months to help raise awareness about how much we have, and how little others have .. lacking even the bare essentials!
She has started a page where you can pledge to go shoeless - for a day, 3 days, a week, even a month if you want! And in return to collect up (good quality) shoes that are never used, sitting in the back of closets.
These shoes she will then sell (June 8th) with all proceeds going to help kids in Cambodia get the essentials they need to get an education - shoes, uniforms, and school supplies.
I've signed up for a week (in MAY .. brrrr it's gonna be a cold one!) - giving up wearing my brand new beautiful boots that I've just bought - because it is such a worthy cause!
I've already gathered up a tonne of shoes - maybe you would like to donate some too?? (esp. if you're in the Hamilton or Whangarei regions .. so I can actually get them to the venue to be sold!)
Check out her sign up page here if you want to sign up (and read what it's all about) and check out this page here to see where the funds are going.
