I sincerely want to thank you for reading this. I know we all get a lot of solicitation emails. Most of you know that I am very passionate about making a difference. It amazes me that there are children in this world, including in the United States, who have no choice in which pair of shoes they will wear. As a matter a fact, they have NO SHOES at all. Many of these children will contract diseases of which some can be deadly. None of us should turn our back to a cause such as this one. I am hoping to provide as many children as possible with brand new pairs of shoes and a life-changing word of encouragement with Samaritan’s Feet which was faithfully founded by Manny and Tracie Ohonme.
Samaritan’s Feet serves and inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities. Since its founding in 2003, Samaritan’s Feet and its partners have distributed over 6.6 million pairs of shoes in more than 90 countries and 350 U.S. cities.
On November 3, Samaritan's Feet will name their 2018 Person of the Year from among the Hope Giver honorees at their Barefoot Gala.
