{Sole Hope}- Shoe Cutting Party

I first learned about Sole Hope at the Influence Conference.
Who they are and what they do is summed up here:
"A group of passionate, committed people who are putting closed toed shoes on African children, one pair at a time. It all started with a chance encounter with a YouTube video--a video that broke our hearts, took us WAY out of our comfort zones, and lead us to Uganda."-Sole Hope Website
The work they're doing in Uganda is incredible to say the least. 
& it all started with one person's heart to see something change. 
Friends, these are the things we should live for, come behind and flame.
As soon as I heard about the Shoe Cutting Parties, I knew this was something the students in our youth group would be passionate about.  Before even thinking through details, I happened to WIN one of the kits at the conference. Thus began the planning process.
Which basically consisted of us grabbing some tables, chairs, scissors & sharpies and inviting all our students over to our house. Y'all it's basically that simple to bring help to these children in Uganda. 

Our students LOVED being able to tangibly help the children. They gathered so many jeans that we had two full trash bags left over & we were there for 4 hours! It's something we will definitely do again. I can't encourage you enough.. If you are a part of a small group, church, school group, or if you have some friends, grab a kit from the Sole Hope website, read up & educate yourself on this, and then make some shoes together! 
Check out their website & the widget on my side bar (-------------------->) to see how you can help!
