"Footing the Cause" story in June 2011 issue of Kiwanis magazine - Journey of a thousand steps begins with one pair of shoes

Would you to like to go to school barefoot? Might be fun for a while but how about if you had to walk for miles every day to get there over dusty rocky roads, risking cuts, infections and worms? Not so much fun after all.

But fewer children in Tanzania are forced to attend school barefooted after an Illinois Kiwanian's detour off his 2008 African safari. Seeing firsthand the disparity between the material wealth of his own country and that of those barefooted kids, Rich Rosenberg decided to found Soles for Africa to distribute gently-used shoes to African schoolchildren. With the help of his local York Community High School Key Club, Rosenberg has sent more than 3,000 pairs of shoes to those in need - kids helping other kids one step at a time.

To learn how your club can foot the cause, too, see page 26 in the June 2011 issue of Kiwanis magazine at www.kiwanismagazine.org.
