50,000 PAIRS IN 50 DAYS

My pal Jeff Goins, of the Adventures in Missions organization and Wrecked for the Ordinary online magazine, sent me this opportunity to get involved with a really cool ministry. I thought that some of you might be interested:

Hey gang,

Here's a great way to "give thanks" during this time of year - buy a
pair of shoes for someone living in a third-world country. During this
season of buying gifts and thanksgiving, I can't think of a better way
to express gratitude to a scandalously gracious God than to bless
those who are walking around barefoot.

Here's how it works:

Go to

A $5 donation buys two pairs of shoes. Everyone that's reading this
has $5, and everyone has 2 minutes. From start to finish, donating is
literally three clicks. No fluff. No hassle. Anyone can donate.

Spread the word.
Use the widget code on the landing page to post a link on your blog.
Email everyone you know. Join the facebook group. Ask your friends to
do the same!

Win a trip.
Besides the fact that the blogging world can literally impact 50,000
people before the end of the year, one person (and their guest) will
be chosen at random to hand-deliver the shoes they purchased on a
Soles4Souls trip to Mexico. Imagine handing someone their first pair
of shoes… ever.

Do the Math.
If 500 people influence 10 people to donate, and those people
influence 5 more, that's 50,000 pairs of shoes ($5 buys 2 pairs).

Get Started.
Sign-up at, donate your $5, and start
spreading the word.
