Global Activism: Sending Shoes to Children Around the World

We're continuing with our springtime theme today, and have another Global Activism story. Share Your Soles is an organization that collects shoes for needy children around the world.  We've had Share Your Soles on Worldview many times over the years. They're having a run/walk in Soldier Field in May to raise funds to ship the shoes. 

Mona Purdy is the founder of Share Your Soles.  She started the organization in 1999 with a run, and now she does a run annually to raise funds for Share Your Soles.
