Want an easy way to give to those in need this Christmas?

Last year, I was talking to my friend about how our Ministry, The Navigators, tutor kids at a local apartment complex. This apartment provides housing to families for a very small amount of rent. Without this place, the families would be homeless. I went on to say that one of the kids wanted new shoes for Christmas. We both thought that was so sad. Our kids take shoes for granted. These kids want it as their Christmas.

So moved and saddened by this conversation, my sweet, tenderhearted friend, Jennifer, took it upon herself to collect money for shoes for these kids. Hoping to collect enough for 20 or so pairs of shoes, she ended up with $1500. Because of that, an organization was born~ Shoes for the Shoeless.

They are providing kids all over our community with shoes for kids who would otherwise not have shoes or shoes that fit anyway.

Pepsi is giving away $50,000 to organizations like this one. Shoes for the Shoeless is in the running for this grant. Will you please follow the link below and vote once a day? We have to be in the top 10 to win. Currently, we are 21!!
