Aaaannnnnddd back to the regularly scheduled shoes posts

I've got a couple thanks to give out...

Penny from KC Express donated a pair of shoes - thanks Penny!

"Daisy" from KC Express donated 3 pairs of shoes - thanks "Daisy"

Paula, from San Francisco, mailed a box with a pair of shoes and some ink pens. Thanks Paula! That was a fun surprise to get at the mail box.

We are less than 60 days out from the trip!

I am starting to get that desperate feeling. I'm hoping to bring 75 pairs of shoes, stuffed into 6 suitcases, with 150 pairs of socks and a lot of school supplies. So far, the shoe count is short. By a lot. And I'm short on socks too. Nicol donated enough cash to buy 12 pairs of socks, but that isn't close to the 44 we currently can match up with shoes.

Total shoe count: 27 (17m, 10w)
For those keeping track, our current total sock need is as follows:
24 pairs of men's socks
20 pair's of women's socks
People, I *need* your help!
In order to make this work, I still need shoes, socks, a few more suitcases, and lots of school supplies. I can get nice, hardback children's books from our local thrift store for $0.55 cents a piece, and would love to have someone sponsor some of those. I need some help with the baggage fees as those will run over $300. Can you help? Do you know a business, big or small, that would be willing to sponsor a suitcase or two either with the baggage fees, or filling it up, or both? Do you have an inside connection with a sock company that would love to donate some? Please, please, please!
Share your shoes, share your love, share your world. 

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   twitter @RunningWithHart
