I really do not know where to start.....overall our donations are coming in from all resources. We have the shoe industry jumping in from all angles. Several manufacturing companies are having shoe drives along with church and civic groups across the country. We have made a commitment to send 85k pairs of shoes to Uganda for a refugee camp in August. This will be a huge event and the shoe industry and individuals world wide will see the difference a pair of shoes make in someone's life.
Stay tuned..... we will make a huge announcement in a few weeks about our 10 -10 - 10 campaign for later in 06. Want a hint? Maybe you can be one of the folks going to Africa to hand out product donated?? Stay tuned for all of the details!
Continue to check out our website as we will be adding a few new pictures for "before" a new pair was given out. It will amaze you!
