New shoes!

What is it about ladies and shoes?

I'm in Sri Lanka with Sleeping Children Around the World, the Canadian charity that ditsributes bedkits to needy kids in developing countries.

These kits include mattresses, mosquito nets, clothing, and school supplies, all items that are virtually unaffordable for poor families who often get by on a few hundred dollars a year.

This year's kits for Sri Lanka, include shoes from manufacturer DSI, and that is turning out be a big hit with the children and their parents.

Here's a short video showing some of the 4,500 kids who will get kits here, as they get fitted with their new footwear.

  1. Best wishes on this journey Doug! Shoes are great because they are the one thing you wear that you can actually see completely, any time you want.
