Home for the holidays and still picking up shoes. Thanks everyone. A big thank you to Temple Sinai of North Dade for continuing to be be one of our biggest supporters.
Want to know how your shoes make a difference? We spotted a homeless man on the street over break, went home, and brought him back two pairs of shoes. He cried. He danced for us. That felt good.
We collected tons of shoes this past year while applying to college and moving to DC and Boston. Total shoe count: 3,481
We are grateful that we could help children all the way in Israel. It took almost a year, but fifty pairs of shoes went overseas. Thanks, Arnie!
