USA (MNN) — Do you have a passion for helping people, but aren't sure where to begin? Would you like to help children around the world while uniting your community in a cause?
Here's an idea: Shoes For Orphan Souls.
Buckner international is changing lives through Shoes for Orphan Souls by providing shoes to orphans all around the world. Since 1999, they have distributed over 2.5 million pairs of shoes to children in 74 countries.
In Texas, K-LOVE is partnering with Buckner to raise 200,000 pairs of shoes.
Shoe drives are one way to unite a community. Buckner has made it possible for people like you to start a drive in your community; just click here to learn more about hosting a shoe drive. A host promotes the shoe drive, collects the shoes, and ships them to Buckner.
You won't be expected to start the drive without any help or instruction. When you sign up, you will get a starter kit providing steps for a successful shoe drive, along with posters, brochures, and a DVD.
In addition to hosting a shoe drive, there are also opportunities to join Buckner in delivering the shoes. You can experience the process from beginning to end and see how a pair of shoes changes lives and opens doors to sharing the Gospel.
Pray for the shoe drive taking place in Texas this month. Also prayerfully consider starting your own shoe drive. Pray that through this ministry, children will come to know Christ as their Savior.
