We are fierce about giving these kids the best we can. We are striving to do more and we are so thankful we have the ability to send two hockey bags of donations with a travelling family.
One of these bags we are dedicating to carry much needed shoes to help protect the kids from future jiggers and infections.
We are hoping to outfit each child in a new, or like new shoe. Croc like shoes work best, because they wash well, are forgiving in sizes, durable, and lighter than running shoes.
We are very fortunate to have met with a store in Sherwood Park who is willing to sell Dawgs to us at an extremely discounted price. We currently have 20 pairs on hold.
Will you consider helping us prevent future Jigger infections in these tiny feet?
Perhaps you have a 'like new' pair of Crocs that you don't wear, or have some pocket change that you can purchase a new pair with.
$5 can purchase a pair of shoes and pay for the traveling expense to get them there!
That is likely the cheapest pair of shoes you will ever buy, and with the most impact! Does it get any better!?
These kids need so much more than to just be fed a basic diet. We need to nurture their mind, body and spirit as well. They need to know THEY ARE LOVED and SPECIAL and they NEED to go to school to try and overcome the staggering odds stacked against them. They maybe orphans, but they need to know it DOES NOT and WILL NOT dictate their future!
Here is how you can help:
If you have a pair of crocs that you would like to donate, please send them to 2812-45 Ave Athabasca, AB, T9S 1N6. We are asking for sizes 3-10 (youth/adult), as we have the small sizes on hold.
You can purchase a new pair for $5 via this paypal button.
Once again, we thank you for your generousity - it really does take a village to raise a child!
WE STILL NEED $150 TO PAY FOR THE LUGGAGE FEE TO GET THEM THERE.
