Haven't heard of the 30 Days of Kindness? Click here to find out more. Just starting? That's okay! Feel free to start this challenge right in the middle. You can make up the days you missed through November, if you like.
Give away a pair of shoes. This can be extremely difficult for you or very easy, depending on how attached you are to those things you wear on your feet. Now... you don't have to give away your favorite pair of shoes. A pair that you've grown out of or don't wear as much as you thought you would will work. You could even go and purchase a pair of shoes.
Once I gave away my favorite pair of shoes. I was in Africa and I met my sponsored girl, Lavin. I saw her shoes. They were tattered and ruined. We were approximately the same shoe size (yes, I have small feet), so I gave her my colorful, favorite pair of Kangaroo shoes and wore sandals for the rest of the trip. It was worth it. A little girl now has shoes that fit right. She can now run and play without worrying that her shoes will fall apart.
You can give shoes away to a person in need... donate them to a shelter... leave them on a sidewalk. Do what you feel led to do with your shoes. All I ask is that you give at least one pair away. Easy enough, right?
I want to hear your stories! Leave me a comment and share what you did during today's challenge. If you have a picture or two, feel free to send them to me. If you're blogging about today, send me the link and I'll feature it on this blog.
Stay tuned until later today to see what my friends and I did for today's act of kindness.
TOMORROW: Write a letter to someone you admire!
