10 pairs of shoes!

Soleful Suitcases had a great day yesterday!

Gary Gribbles, a local Kansas City running store, is offering us some donations of shoes. When people go to buy new ones there, they often leave their old shoes and Gary Gribbles gives them to local charities. I emailed to ask them if they would give SS some of their shoes, and they said yes! So yesterday we went to the Overland Park location and received 4 pairs of shoes with the encouragement to come back again for more. Yahoo! Thanks Gary Gribbles!

Later in the afternoon I met my friend Miranda Kennedy at the gym for a Pilates class, and she gave me 6 pairs of men's shoes. Yahoo!

Yesterday we received 10 pairs of men's shoes - how great is that! Now we just need 20 pairs of men's socks to go with them.

If you'd like to donate to Soleful Suitcases and our upcoming trip in July 2013, there are several ways to help. You can donate your in good shape, still life left, adult athletic shoes. You can donate brand new adult socks. School supplies are always welcome. Shop on Amazon via the link on the right hand size so we get credit to help pay for baggage fees. Or donate to our GoFundMe site at
