Family collects shoes for Soles4Souls

Who said one person or one family can't make a huge difference?

The Hung family of St. Louis, MO will make a difference in 562 lives. That's how many pairs of shoes Micah and Lucas Hung (shown above) collected in a family shoe drive that will benefit the less fortunate worldwide.

It took the boys weeks to collect all of the shoes, mostly coming through friends and word of mouth at school. Many of the shoes collected will benefit the bare footed children in developing countries with little or no possessions.

While most kids spend their summers selling lemonade or mowing lawns for a few dollars, the Hungs did their work for free.

"My boys were proud of the work they did and we are so happy others can use these shoes," said the boys' mother Danielle. "Hopefully it will be an annual event for our family!"
