Each week throughout 2011 I will share how I am giving back somehow, whether it’s by offering my resources, my time, my talents or my support.
Giving back doesn’t have to be on a grand scale. And doesn’t have to be about money.
Oftentimes charities, organizations, causes and foundations need support beyond donations. And that’s what I’m going to try to focus on.
I will be sharing what I’m doing each week; perhaps you, too, will be inspired to give back.
Together we can make a difference.
52 Weeks of Giving: Week 3
I did so because this week I’m highlighting Share Our Shoes, a charity that recycles shoes for those in need. Here is a short video of SOS fitting children in Haiti with shoes after the earthquake that devastated that country last year:
Through shoe donation drives, drop boxes and donations from people like you and me, Share Our Shoes has already given hundreds of thousands of shoes to men, women and children who need them… Haiti earthquake victims, Nashville, TN flood victims and Pakistan flood victims, as well as those struggling financially locally.
As I state in the video below, I am sending about 40 pairs of shoes to Share Our Shoes… these 40 shoes are what I came up with between just me and two of my friends.
I have a (conservative) goal of getting 100 more pairs of shoes sent to Share Our Shoes by my readers.
If you can, would love for you to help!
Here is the address to send shoes:
