“OH WOW! OH WOW!” This is all Isabel said when she opened her latest donation of shoes from We Are That Family. She had little tears in her eyes! In the note from the family that sent these shoes it said,
” Our oldest daughter wanted to contribute to your ministry. She did chores, worked, and sold some of her things to buy 3 pair of shoes. My son then decided to pitch in and buy a pair also. When we went to buy the shoes, they were having a big sale so Kristen and I pitched in for a few additional pairs.”
Isabel said,”Oh Wow”
Just a couple weeks ago, Isabel opened up a box of shoes from a total stranger. She has received money, shoes, and lots of sweet notes from people that don’t even know her, but are supporting her cause, “Shoes for Kids”. Do you know what this does to a kid’s heart?
What a blessing it is to see my child get excited about shoes….and not for herself, but those in need.
What a joy to see my kid fearlessly ask others to give without apology because she believes what she is doing is right.
Isabel has been fundraising for shoes for about 5 months now and sent several pairs with me to Kenya to give away at Compassion projects. Last month we sent five pairs off with a friend going to Guatemala with Compassion. This month we will send several more pairs down to Brazil with Stephen ((Isabel’s dad). Next month some shoes are going to Peru, and in the fall back to Guatemala. It’s so exciting.
Isabel is ramping up for her next big fundraiser so here is her ad so far. It’s very serious I must warn you, but she does not mess around.
SHOES FOR KIDS by Isabel
The world seems happy, but when you look around the corner, you see sadness.
Tears running down a little girl’s face.
You look down at yourself and you see clean clothing, your nice shoes. You look at the little girl again.
Sad, hopeless eyes, and dirty torn clothing, No shoes.
What are you supposed to do?
You can help kids like this.
If you want to help Isabel and SHOES for KIDS, send me a note and I will email you on how to do this!
