Bare feet no more

I wanted to post some photo's of all the donations that we handed out in Ethiopia. We had over 500 pairs of croc style shoes and I can't even explain how much this meant to these children and adults. I knew there was a need for them...but didn't know exactly HOW much it would touch me to hand these out on behalf of all you who donated. THANK YOU so much for donating. We also took mini sticks and balls to hand out and the Blades donated a lot of washable tattoo's. They loved them..



So enjoy the photo's. Also if you feel touched at how much the shoes benefited these children, when you see them on sale this fall, pick them up! I am starting collecting again, and hope to return sooner than later!



Handing shoes out in the orphanage where Nev was found at.


A little girl who attached to Dad. Or maybe the other way around!!








Playing with the mini sticks. Adam showed them how to hold the sticks and shoot and score!!




A group photo of everyone with shoes, sticks and tattoo's!!


Look at this boys feet. We found him on the roadside working in the fields. No shoes.

These pictures are beautiful! My husband and I brought our daughter home from Ethiopia in May of 2009 and we are in the process of adopting twins from Ethiopia! Our blog is Beneath the Acacia Tree / www.gfinkfamily.blogspot.com

What smiles those shoes brought! Thank you for sharing the pictures. We have started collecting for when Mark goes back to Ethiopia later this year. I wish I could go with him to see the faces again. It's such an amazing experience.
