We had so much fun taking the kids to the Buckner packaging warehouse! We are blown away with the outpouring of support and love during our shoe drive! I am convinced we have the best patients in the world! You guys are awesome, and we couldn’t have done it without your big hearts! We donated 130 paris of shoes and $460 that will go directly to children in need. That’s. Amazing. Thank you so very much! Shoes mean hope for a child in need. A pair of shoes can be life changing, they provide health, means to education and help them understand that they are loved and cared for. We are grateful to work with Buckner International and anticipate another shoe drive next year. We are passionate about serving others and we love kids! What a grew way to begin our Smile Initiative program. Stay tuned for more ways to get involved and do good!

“For many of the children we serve in orphanages around the world, new shoes are a constant and urgent need. Typically, children in orphanages share everything. They do not own a single possession to their name. So when you give an orphan a new pair of shoes, it communicates love and helps them know they are special. They are not forgotten. New shoes provide hope for these children that someone out there cares about them and loves them unconditionally.”
