who doesn’t love shoes?

“I bet if I think about it real hard I can remember my first pair of shoes.” -Forrest Gump

What if you could give someone their first pair of shoes? Not only would it benefit their life in more ways than you could imagine, they would also remember this gift for the rest of their life.

Soles4Souls, an organization that facilitates the donations of shoes to the shoeless — wants to present to you (the blog community) with an enormous challenge: 50,000 Pairs… in 50 days.

To reach this audacious goal, Soles4Souls is offering you a way purchase 2 pairs of shoes for just a $5 donation. It is that easy to make a difference in someone’s life.


By purchasing two pairs of shoes for just $5, you are automatically entered into a random drawing to personally deliver the shoes you purchased to someone in need on one of their trips to Mexico.

How cool would that be?

Oh, and the more shoes you donate… the more chances you have to win the drawing for the trip.


I would never challenge you to do something I’m not willing to do myself. So, here’s my receipt from my transaction (I donated 20 pairs of shoes for $50).

If you participate… let me know in the comments, how many shoes you donated. I’d love to see PinkHairedGirl readers donate an accumulative 100 pairs of shoes (OR MORE!!!).

Whether you can donate financially or not – help us spread the word through your blog, facebook, myspace — everywhere! The more hands on deck – the more likely this goal of 50,000 Pairs…  in 50 Days can be reached.
