Shoes for Iraqi Kids

I have been receiving e-mails from people who say they saw me on TV, where I made an appeal for people to donate gently used and new children’s shoes for the children of Iraq.

Funny thing is, I haven’t been on TV talking about that. (Another Amy Ridenour, perhaps?) But I did blog about it some time ago, and I have shipped over some of my kids’ used shoes, so I’m all for the idea.

I learned about the program from the Keystone Soldiers website. It is a great website to visit if you support our men and women overseas — even if you don’t have any gently used children’s shoes.

Meantime, if you happen to see an Amy Ridenour on TV talking about shoes for Iraqi kids, she’s not me — unless she’s young and witty and beautiful, that is.

Yep, that’s the ticket.

Addendum 3/26/05: The mystery may be solved, thanks to the following e-mail I received:

Re: your post on shoes

It was Addie, and she was on Dennis Miller. She’s young and beautiful. Hey what the heck, go with the flow!

A fan of you blog, keep up the good work,
