Ten Buck Shoes (Kenya)

Okay well heres finally an update. The area we worked in Kibera will be having a Tabasamu Christmas Party coming up on December 17th. It's a Christmas party designed for kids of ages 6 to 14 in Kibera. We basically run a feeding programe on that day, as well as give them a few gifts. We're looking at having 400 kids for this event. Just like last year, we are hoping to give each one of them a pair of shoes. A good pair of shoe here would costs about $10. From past experience, it's so expensive to send shoes from the States and there's no guarantee that they will arrive as one MST did last year. It would be much easier to send money that would be used to purchase the shoes here as it cuts costs as well as saves time. If we can get the money a month before the 17th of December, it would be great as it would give us sufficient time to look for the specific shoe sizes. (Youth Center P O Box 513 Keyser WV 26726 Make checks/orders out to Youth Center or just leave name blank but not the amount :) ) So Anyone and Everyone reading this if you care to help out you can send us a check or money order. Our goal is actually the 4,000 and well they can use the leftover money for other Needs. This is most likely their one gift. My wife has decided to tell family and friends to pass on getting us gifts but use the money towards this Party. Thanks and Blessings,
