I will be selling off personal items next weekend to raise money for shoes. It is a cathartic way to approach spring cleaning while also making a change in a child's life. A win-win!
I have been inspired by the dedication of the small band of incredibly active members who selflessly devote hours and day to sew, travel and promote the needs of this worthwhile cause. It is very easy to feel sympathy for children in need and to whip out a checkbook to make a donation. It is much harder to be the driving force for the betterment of a community a world away. The Fabulous African Fabrics board and extensive membership work very hard to gain every nickel they can raise to make life better and the future provide more potential for these children who are refugees of hunger, poverty and AIDS in a country where strife and political instability are common. There is no greater satisfaction that I can have to be a member of this crew striving to make a change one dime at a time.
