National Barefoot Sunday-Join Us!

This Sunday is National Go Barefoot Sunday.

This is an event that Soles 4 Souls puts on. Here is information from their website about the event.

What is Barefoot Sunday?
As a part of Barefoot Week, Barefoot Sunday is design to encourage religious organizations to get involved by leaving their shoes at the alter inconjunction with a church wide shoe collection. Barefoot Sunday helps encourage churches around the country to take off their shoes and go barefoot to raise awareness for the more than 1.5 billion people worldwide who do not own a single pair of shoes. This Spring, more than 150,000 churches will be asked to join in and get involved by taking off their shoes for one Sunday. As part of this powerful movement, congregants can bring their new or gently worn shoes to church or donate funds to Soles4Souls to help put shoes on the feet on the 300 million children around the world who are barefoot.

For every $1 you donate today to Soles4Souls, we can provide one additional pair of shoes to someone in need. $20 provides 20 pairs of shoes. $500 will change the lives of 500 people - maybe an entire community! Thank you for your support!

So the Ruggles Family will be going Barefoot this Sunday. WE also be sending in a donation to Soles 4 Souls.

Anyone want to join us??
