Take a moment to think about your feet, and just how important they are to every aspect of your life. Now think of what it would be like if you weren’t able to keep them clean, warm, dry and comfortable; or if you weren’t able to buy those new sports shoes everyone else had and you needed. It’s something most of us take for granted, but in our own neighborhoods families are struggling with just the basic necessities… and sometimes new shoes are way down on the list of priorities.
I’m A Shoe Angel is the creation of a single mother of 3, who at one time was homeless, and was given a chance by a compassionate stranger. With a job and a place to live, my life was dramatically changed forever. In a better place now, I can finally pay it forward and honor the kindness and generosity shown to me and my kids, by helping make life just a bit easier on those families in similar situations.
I’m A Shoe Angel gives the community an opportunity to pay it forward by offering a way to provide new, well made shoes to local youth who need them, enhancing the quality of life for everyone.
I am blessed and very grateful to have a group of amazing people who volunteer their time and energy to help us be successful. I could not do this without them. Each person has a special gift they bring to the table which is invaluable and appreciated.
I’m A Shoe Angel may have been my idea, but you are making it happen!
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for becoming a Shoe Angel!
