I love them.
Today I counted them….
Yes, I counted 51 pairs of shoes in my closet today!
How many of them did I wear today?
So it’s time to put these shoes to good use!
I love the Soles 4 Souls “50,000 Pairs in 50 Days Challenge” and I’ve been trying to figure out how I could contribute in a meaningful way.
So, here’s my plan:
1) I will be donating 20% of the shoes in my closet directly to Soles 4 Souls. (They do take gently used shoes at their donation centers.)
2) Over the course of the campaign I will be purchasing a pair of shoes for every pair that I own. In order to do this financially I will have to make a few sacrifices including:
- Eating out one less time per week
- Not purchasing any additional shoes for myself between now and the end of the year (I have to admit this freaks me out because holiday parties are coming up and I will be tempted to purchase that perfect pair of shoes!! But there – I made the public commitment!!)
So, how about you? Have you accepted the Soles for Souls Shoe Challenge?
The cool thing is only $5 buys 2 pairs of shoes!!
It takes under 2 minutes to donate and only three clicks – super easy!
So if you think this is something you can do…five bucks, three clicks, two minutes = two pairs of shoes to someone in need, just visit http://www.50000shoes.com.
And just for fun, how many pairs of shoes are in your closet?
