I don’t cry…often, but this nearly got me. You want to know how to express Jesus to your friends, family, and everyone else? After your shot on American television, go back and visit the countries you couldn’t spend enough time in because you were racing. Then, keep your eyes open to the world around you and decide to get involved in solving a problem. OH and how about making your solution one that is grounded and generous?
Blake Mycoskie (yeah I didn’t watch the Amazing Race so I didn’t know who this guy was) saw a problem with people living in poverty stricken places working and walking without shoes on. His business strategy is simple: For every pair of shoes you and I buy, he gives a pair away. Shoes for tomorrow.
Toms Shoes and/or Blake have been in Oprah’s magazine, Vogue, Time Magazine, more. I don’t want to glamorize Blake or Toms but it brings some validity to the work besides being freakin’ awesome that something like this is getting so much attention!
I bought the do it yourself kit to show to my youth. These shoes are stupid cheap: $38.00 and you can buy a kit with the white ones and decorate it yourself! Can’t wait to get mine! Get yours! Do something other than praying for others.
…yikes was that harsh?…I don’t apologize…do something…
