We’ve all heard about a flock of birds flying into an airplane and causing extensive damage. We can relate. Not that a flock of birds hit us…it only took one bird, flying into the Soles4Souls RV mirror as we cruised down an LA freeway to inflict some damage. We heard a loud “thud” and suddenly had our outside mirror dangling from a few wires. The bird actually cracked the heavy duty plastic surrounding the mirror. After a quick stop at Lowe’s, Allan applied a plastic epoxy, and with the help of Duct tape, our mirror is almost good as new. You’ll understand why we didn’t take a picture of the bird.

Later that evening, I met a 12-year-old boy at a shoe distribution. We only had a pair of boots in his size. He politely explained that he had bad feet and needed to wear orthodics. He described how his only pair of shoes, (well-worn Vans!) held his orthodics in place perfectly. After a quick e-mail to Jenny, she assured me a new pair of Vans would be sent to his house. That’s customer service!
