This is what we were talking about. We neither have to go hungry nor walk bare feet by giving something to the poor. We have a lot of used and unused clothes that may not have any use to us, but to someone out there it would mean so much. And heeding to the call of needy is our innovative people behind ShoeVival.
Today (September 17, 2011) they are conducting a “social campaign” which they call HELP-SHOE BHUTAN.” The project is aimed to “clean and refurbish the shoes and distribute [them] amongst the people who cannot afford a decent pair of shoe.”
And they plan to distribute these refurnished shoes to the poor people in the villages. I am really impressed by their kind gesture and understanding of the plight of the poor lot. This initiative would also go a long way in cultivating a sense of giving in Bhutanese.
Everyone can be a part of this campaign. Just donate a pair or two used shoes. The Thimphu campaign starts from 10:AM onwards.
Although I regret for being unable to be physically present during the campaign in Thimphu, I am sure going to contribute something to the project as it goes out elsewhere in the country. We have all our support.
Good work ShoeVival Bhutan!
