Kids raise over 300 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls

Hi Jim,

I just thought I would send you a note to tell you what my son Jordan Schalm did for the soles4souls campaign.

He is in a leadership class at school and they are encouraged to put in volunteer hours in the community. He decided to take on the soles 4 souls challenge and help to raise the 25 000 shoes in 25 days.

He made up flyers and delivered them to about 200 houses in our neighbourhood. He then went back, with the help on a few friends, and collected about 3-400 pairs of shoes. We didn't actually count, but it filled the whole back of my pickup truck as well as the back seat.

I just thought I would let you know that your cause has inspired a small group of boys. I think they were surprised at what a great response they got from the people in the Wiltse neighbourhood.
Great Idea!
Thanks for getting the Okanagan involved in this campaign.
