Shirts for Shoes: Buy a Gift, Love an OrphanJanuary 16, 2010
HopeChest announces the launch of “Shirts for Shoes” our Valentines Day campaign. In partnership with Kari Gibson’s Simply Love project, we have created exclusive and limited edition T-shirts for you to buy as a Valentines Day gift for your loved ones. 100% of proceeds will provide a new shirt and new shoes to 400 children in Ethiopia in our programs.
Why buy a T-Shirt? Your purchase of a shirt not only makes a great Valentines Day gift, but it gives the best gift of all to an orphan: love. Make this a Valentine’s Day you will never forget. Wrap your hearts around each face and pray for them every time you wearyour shirts. Click the shirts below to go straight to the ordering page.
Why do the orphans need shoes? Many of the kids in Ethiopia are coming to us with clothing that is either worn out, too small, or even too big. Children who have lost their parents to AIDS are wearing the clothes left behind by mom and dad.
These recent photos show you the need and demonstrate how much a pair of shoes will make a huge difference.
