I'm going to wear #NoShoesForAYear to collect shoes and raise money and awareness to help buy shoes for children who don't have the luxury.

Update January 22, 2012: I've recently hooked up with a non-profit organization that resides in Louisville KY, but also lives in Kenya called Nasha Ministries, a New Mission Systems International affiliate. They address the needs of needy and orphaned street children and families who have been subjected to homelessness, family abuse, prostitution, etc in Narok, Kenya. One of the things that Nasha Ministries is involved in is getting these children in schools and providing them with shelter and education. The problem is is they have to pay for EVERYTHING. bedding, uniforms, and one of the most important and expensive item, shoes. Without shoes they can't attend school and get the education that they need and they'll be put back on the streets without a chance to change their lives.

At the end of the year, I'm going to personally take the money I raise to Narok, Kenya with Nasha Ministries and buy the shoes that these children need. In turn it will boost Naroks economy along with making sure we get the RIGHT style and stitch of shoe that these kids need. They have a much different preference that we do here in the states when it comes to shoe needs. Also it's a FORTUNE to ship shoes.

The new shoes that I collect will go towards children here in the U.S. that can't afford them. In Kentucky, where I'm from, I've read the towns near the Appalachian Mountains have a big problem with their children not having shoes when they should for school and safety. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at noshoesforayear@hotmail.com
