Tender Little Feet Need Shoes!!

All 84 kids at "Trees of Glory" care-point are sponsored and are now getting nutritious meals every day!  But there is still much to be done. 

Two of our sponsor families contacted me asking about shoes for the kids.  Knowing that most of the kids are barefoot every day - and if they do have shoes, they are falling apart on their feet - prompted these 2 families (Davidson and Primeaux families) to start making things happen so that the kids can get shoes!!

As soon as we have raised enough funds for ALL of the kids to have shoes, each child will be measured and fitted for a sturdy pair of leather, lace-up shoes with rugged soles that will withstand the rugged terrain in Ethiopia.  Each pair of shoes will cost $18. 

Can you provide a pair of shoes (or two or three or more) for a child who has none? 

Please contact me for details on how to donate - or simply go to http://www.hopechest.org/, click on "GIVE" and then complete the form for a one-time gift in increments of $18.  Please be sure to specify "ET2119-SHOES" in the notes area so the funds are allocated for shoes at Trees of Glory!  Please Email me if you donate so I can track our progress!!

So far - we have $425 toward our goal of $1,512 for shoes!!
