Share Your Soles distributed over 250 pairs of warm winter boots to various Chicago, Illinois shelters this past week. With the cold snap today our timing could not have been better. We have all faced challenges this past year, some more than others. Sharing is caring ๐Ÿ™
Thank you to all who made it possible for us to make these small acts of kindness possible. Please keep the love going and consider making a monetary contribution. Merry Christmas

Hello Friends! Due to covid we are unable to host volunteers at this time. We are hoping the spring will be safe time for us to resume business as usual. Until then please do not drop off shoes at our facility until further notice. There are other local charities in need of footwear. Storing them in our building over the winter does not serve anyone.
Warm regards and we will get through this challenging time.....
Best, Share Your Soles Foundation

It was 5 years ago I participated in a Sacred Sweat Lodge out on the Pineridge Indian Reservation
I was the guest of the Host. She prayed with me and others that Share Your Soles Foundation Inc would have itโ€™s own home. Prayer works.

Update on my Birthday Day fund raising efforts. Looks like the Pineridge Indian Reservation will be getting some warm winter boots this season thanks to the love of generous supporters and friends. Winter began weeks ago out on the Rez. Their winters are harsher and crueler than any you may have experienced. Big Hugs and lots of love!!

Share Your Soles continues to send support to remote areas of Cameroon, Africa. With Covid going on I myself will not be traveling with our shipment. More than three years of armed violence in the English-speaking regions of North-West and South-West Cameroon have led to a humanitarian crisis, severely damaging local health systems even as medical needs soar. Access to healthcare has become a daily challenge.
Today, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is one of the few humanitarian organisations still providing medical care to people in these regions.
Quality shoes are important for people to get around preventing infections for their unprotected feet. Pray our shipment reaches those in the greatest need. ๐Ÿ™
