12 May 2005 Shoes for Iraqi Kids Update
Blonde Sagacity is updating progress on shoes and more for Iraqi kids.
7,000 donated pairs of shoes — wow.
Here’s a copy of a thank-you letter I received from the U.S. soldier in Iraq who started it all, just for sending over some of my kids’ gently used shoes. I still find it amazing — this soldier, Lt. Eric Sloan, is not only defending our freedom abroad, and organizing a kids’ charity in his spare time, he’s even sending handwritten thank-you notes to people who helped his project in only a small way. We should be sending him the thank-you notes.
