EVENT DATE Oct 15, 2016

THE STORY:

As my Bat Mitzvah project, I wanted to do something that I could make with my own hands and the help of my friends. I also care deeply about kids in third-world countries, so Mom and I discovered Sole Hope. This amazing organization that uses many methods to prevent jiggers- small bugs that burrow into the skin of unprotected feet and cause intense pain, not to mention paralyzing and sometimes fatal infections and diseases! Sole Hope helps with the removal of jiggers and treatment of illness in Uganda, and presents each patient with a brand new pair of shoes at the end! My role is to cut specific shapes out of old denim to be shipped to Uganda, where shoemakers and tailors are paid a fair wage to turn them into real closed-toe shoes with firm soles that protect vulnerable feet. The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise $10 for each pair of shoes we make to cover shipping, supply costs, and the wages for the wonderful employees. My goal for this part of my project is to help provide 100 kids with a pair of shoes to wear by my Bat Mitzvah date, October 15.
