Help Put Shoes On Their Feet


Something we in America often take for granted. My personal closet is full of them. This is not the case for everyone in the world. In fact, shoes are one of the main items that some people long to have.
I love TOMS one-for-one. I love giving money to organizations that reach out to provide things such as shoes to people all over the world. But WHAT IF we could skip the large middle-man corporation and instead give the money directly to the individual who would buy and hand out the shoes to those in need? See a need and meet it. No fancy advertisements. No big websites. No major ministry. Instead, simply giving money to someone and saying "go buy those sweet kids some shoes!"

The Lord has recently presented this opportunity to me on 2 different occasions... For 2 different countries.

Africa and Ukraine

Below are two different stories of kids in need of shoes. I am naming it the 30$ challenge! For 30$ you can have a hand in directly giving a child a pair of shoes and even a Bible. No, this has nothing to do with our specific adoption, but our hearts are falling in love with children all over the world.

Ethiopia, Africa.

Brittni Huff (another adoptive mom from our agency) recently read a blog from a missionary in Africa. The missionary was not in any way asking for money in her blog post. She was simply describing events that were happening in Africa. However, the Lord stirred Brittni's heart to move in action and help the kids that the missionary described in her story. The specific need.... SHOES. I love how God moves in the hearts of those willing to take action. I pray that you would read the following blog posts to learn more about this specific need in Ethiopia.
