Skechers of Canada donated 30,000 pairs of shoes to be sent to Niger, Africa. We have several thousand on display at the Soles4Souls booth in Major’s Park at the Tulip Festival. Our giant display of shoes attracts attention as people walk by and ask why there are so many shoes on the ground, hanging from our picket fence, and filling the giant Dutch shoes. It’s a perfect opportunity to explain how Soles4Souls is a shoe charity, distributing shoes around the world. In addition to the Skecher shoes, Soles4Souls will donate an additional 70,000 pairs of shoes to Niger.
Our daughter Sondra arrived from Waco, Texas last night so it’s great being with her. I’d send a picture of her, but she’s snoozing in bed right now. Tomorrow I’ll post a traditional family photo in front of the tulips. Maybe an untraditional photo also.
