Shoes anyone??

I've got shoes............
and more shoes.............................................................
and MORE shoes.....................................
and even MORE SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But still want MORE SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



In reality, we have to be travelling soon, you would think! And so far I have all the shoes packed that you wonderful friends have donated. Thanks so much. I think the tally is around 400+ shoes to get donated when we go to Ethiopia. 400!!!! That's crazy. We will encounter a bit in extra baggage charges, but that doesn't matter ONE BIT!!!! I am so jacked up about the fact that 400+ people will get a new pair of shoes.



But my peeps, I still can pack more!!!! Some of you have asked in the last while if we are still collecting shoes. Well the answer is YES! We will take as many as we can. We have one offer of a couple that will take an extra bag when they go, and already sent one off to Nev's crib mate's mom, who is going to take that hockey bag with them. So if you are at a Dollar store and see a good deal, or anywhere else, and feel that you want to still donate, I will take em!!! They will all get to someone who needs shoes over in Ethiopia......



But don't wait too long....maybe we are travelling soon?????

Wowzers! That is a heck of a lot of shoes! That is awesome! What a great idea.....Have you asked any stores to chip in and maybe match you donations?

I have a case of meds that I think are expiring as we wait......boo hoo hooo!

Hope you hear something super soon!

What a great thing you are doing! I just wanted to pop by and let you know (though I'm sure you already do) what a major deal shoes are in Ethiopia and what joy they bring. When we were there, it was our donations of shoes that seemed to get the biggest gratitude and smiles. You are going to be making such a difference! All of Ethiopia will be wearing Crocs. by the time you're done collecting!
