Three Pictures of Bare Feet

Would You Go Barefoot For An Entire Year? This 16 Year Old Did And Impacted 3 Countries.

When Keegan Schulte heard that children in Africa couldn’t go to school because they didn’t have shoes to wear, he did something about it … he went a WHOLE year without wearing shoes! His results were pretty remarkable:

  • He raised  $8,597.58
  • 250 pairs of shoes were purchased in Entebbe, Uganda for $5,371
  • $2,800 established a “shoe fund” through Kids Alive, International in Guatemala
  • The remaining $426.58 was donated to “Shoes That Fit,” an organization that provides shoes for underprivileged children in the United States.
