The organization Soles4Souls is in the middle of their 50,000 pair in 50 days challenge. You and your $5 can help. The mission of Soles4Souls is to impact as many lives as possible with the gift of shoes. There are approximately 300 million people in the world who do not own shoes and are forced to walk in what are sometimes dangerous conditions.
I love the 50,000 pair of shoes in 50 days idea in small part because I really dig shoes... but mostly, because it is simple, practical, something almost everyone can help with, and it meets a real need. Check out the history of Soles4Souls, buy two pair of shoes for $5, and spread the word.
