Sole Hope

Two weeks from today we will be on our way!  Packing is officially underway. I feel good at this point about my list.  We will see how I feel next week at this time!  :)

I wanted to share about a ministry.  Sole Hope is based in Asheville, NC. It was founded by Dru and Asher Collie. At this time the ministry  is  focused on three locations Asheville, NC, Uganda, and Zambia.  They are teaching folks in each of those locations the trade of shoe making.  Their mission is to offer hope to widows, orphans and others within impoverished and forgotten communities around the world by teaching the simple trade of shoemaking that provides jobs and shoes for those in need.  How awesome is that!  Sole Hope is competing for a grant right now that is offered by Cultivate Wines.  The non profit with the most votes wins $50,000.  Sole Hope would like to use the $50,00 to construct a building  in Ndola, Zambia to serve the community there. This building would store sewing machines, materials, and finished shoes as well as provide the space needed to teach shoemaking and sanitation classes.  All they need from us is to vote.  You can vote once a day up until March 31st.  Will you help them? You can go here and vote!  This is so easy for us but will make a huge difference in the lives of so many!
