Shoes for orphans, please

At Nazareth House, they're gathering up shoes for the orphans. You can click on the picture to go to their blog and see more details, pictures of the work in Sierra Leone, and links to video. The bottom line is this. There are orphans who need shoes. Walmart is getting rid of inventory for a dollar a pair (ironic, don't you think?). If everyone who reads this blog went to Walmart or some other vendor and purchased some of these rubber clog type shoes or flipflops or any other durable and waterproof children's shoes, and then sent them to Nazareth House by August 1 so they could be shipped overseas, together we could do a lot of good. So ... a $5 latte today? Or five pairs of shoes for small people who have no parents? Hmmm.... you decide.

Deadline for Shoe Collection for children of Sierra Leone
August 1, 2009

Let's see if we can raise at least 5000 pairs of shoes...
