Doesn’t Everyone Travel With 14 Suitcases?

Soles4Souls distributes one pair of shoes every 9 seconds. In most cases, large containers of shoes are sent overseas to be given to people in need. In our case, when we were leaving for El Salvador, we wanted to take as many shoes as possible. American Airlines allows each passenger to take 2 suitcases free of charge. Additional suitcases are charged $100.00 each. Being cheap, (I guess frugal is the new politically correct term), I contacted the president of American and asked if we could take extra suitcases of shoes. Ta Da! He agreed, and had a note added to my ticket saying we could take additional luggage at no cost. So, 14 suitcases later, Allan and I, along with Randy and Vicky took 450 pairs of flip flops and 50 pairs of shoes to El Salvador. Thank you American Airlines!!!
