Yesterday the Connect group we belong to at our church came together to have a Shoe Cutting Party to support SoleHope. What is a shoe cutting party? And what is SoleHope? I am so glad you asked!
According to their website, SoleHope is "a group of passionate, committed people who are putting closed toed shoes on African children, one pair at a time."
When you host a Shoe Cutting Party to support SoleHope you you whave the chance to cut out shoe uppers that will be taken to Africa, sewn by Sole Hope shoemakers for a fair wage and then put on a child's foot who cannot afford a pair of shoes.
Our group was blessed to complete sets for 34 pairs of shoes!
