I realized something today, most of the “No shoes, no shirt, no service” signs are gone. I was trying to find some great pictures for the blog but this is all I could find. Even Walmart doesn’t have a “No shoes” sign on their front door. I did find this sign, however, which I found funny.
I guess our culture has graduated beyond “No shoes” because everyone has shoes. Now we focus on “No shoes with wheels.”
I did have a friend send me this picture from the lobby of their hotel.
Did you know this is the message that many kids in developing countries hear when they try to go to school? “Shoes are required for an education.” Check out this small section from Shuzz.org
Many times children in developing countries can’t attend school barefoot because shoes are a required part of their uniform. If they don’t have shoes, they don’t go to school. If they don’t receive an education, they don’t have the opportunity to realize their potential.
By donating the same amount of money you would spend on a pair of shoes, you are giving children around the world the opportunity to attend school. Every $5 to Shuzz.org provides a brand new pair of shoes for a child in a developing country. If you are like me and spend $45 on a pair of shoes, that’s 9 pairs of shoes for kids in need.
How much do you spend on a pair of shoes? Could you sacrifice that same amount for kids in need? You can give by clicking here.
I need your help. I couldn’t find pictures of “No shoes, no service” signs, but I’m sure you can. Please email me a picture of a “No shoes, no service sign” and I will post it on this blog over the remaining 7 days. Email email@example.com.
Also, please repost this message on Facebook and Twitter. Pass the word to your friends and family, and help children around the world get a pair of shoes. Copy this link and paste it on your wall: www.10dayswithout.com
