I wanted to let you know about a charity campaign I recently found out about. It is a great charity in Nashville, Soles4Souls, that is trying to get money to buy 50,000 pairs of shoes raised in 50 days…
The cool thing is only $5 buys 2 pairs of shoes!! It takes under 2 minutes to donate and only three clicks – super easy! So if you think this is something you can do…five bucks, three clicks, two minutes = two pairs of shoes to someone in need, just visit http://www.50000shoes.com.
For me this simply means skipping one coffee purchase and my Pepsi run on the way to car line, but it also means two people somewhere get a new pair of shoes! Awesome feeling!
More importantly, this can only happen if we spread the word…so please pass this on to anyone you know…the people you work with, your mom, whoever!! Just keep the message going! You can copy and paste this info onto your email, blog, or Facebook page.
All donations are tax deductible of course. You can read the official press release here: http://www.forbes.com/prnewswire/feeds/prnewswire/2008/11/07/prnewswire200811071100PR_NEWS_USPR_____CLF039.html
Oh, and one person who donated will win a trip to Mexico to hand deliver the shoes they bought to someone who has never owned shoes before. Could you imagine giving someone their very first pair of shoes?
Thanks for your support!
