I have the best job in the world. I really do. I get to work with great men and women who have a passion to make the world a better place. Some of them are church leaders, and some start or lead amazing organizations. My friend Wayne Elsey is one of those rare people who has a winning combination of passion, business acumen and relentless drive. Less than four years ago he started Soles4Souls. Since then he’s managed to give away several million pairs of shoes. As a matter of fact, every 22 seconds, S4S puts shoes on the feet of someone in need.
Today they’re starting a new challenge: 50,000 pairs in 50 days. And they’re doing it through social media. It sounds like a lot of shoes, but for $5 you and I can help change two lives with the gift of shoes–giving them comfort, dignity and even health (in Africa, people are getting sick from worms who enter the body thr0ugh their feet).
I’m taking the challenge, but I’d love for you to do the same as well. You can click on the button and donate and you can help spread the word through your network, blog, twitter and even something as antiquated as email. This is truly making a difference.
